One device I don't need is another Rock Band drum set. Over the riptide of releases, I've managed to collect two of the bulky instruments. And while I'd love to toss one (or preferably both), I have a partner who gives me the stink eye followed by a hint of a sneer whenever I broach the subject. Even after our move, as we stare at our crap all over the floors of our snazzy new haunt, she insists that they're essential closet clutter.
I expect more than a few of you may have the same problem, or at least, have more plastic instruments than you need. But that's not going to stop me from telling you that there's more on the way. Case in point: ION, the brains behind the biggest and most complex Rock Band drum set, is set to create an even more complex and heavier set for every Rock Band and beyond, including even Rock Band 3.
Writing that previous paragraph doesn't automatically make an able drummer, but mark my words: if Harmonix includes Orgy's version of "Blue Monday" instead of New Order's (info: here) I will buy this thing and proudly shove it into my closet with the rest of my drum kits. I would also heavily consider a purchase if Harmonix drops in Depeche Mode's latest as well.
The Drum Rocker Pro ships this holiday to coincide with the release of Rock Band 3.
