With all the rumors swirling around surrounding some classic music from Australia's AC/DC making its way into Rock Band, it's only fitting that the game will finally be more-easily playable in the band's native land.

Electronic Arts has announced plans to bring Rock Band--that's the original Rock Band--to Australia on November 7. It will be made available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Wii in a variety of instrument bundles. The full kit will sell for 250 Australian dollars. I believe that's somewhere around $275,000 United States funbucks.

Of course, here in the land of bank closures and awesomeness, we're all playing Rock Band 2. Shouldn't they just pump out both games as a bundle in Australia so they can catch up all at once? After all, the original Rock Band is effectively worth around $10, if you consider its worth to be nothing more than a rental fee combined with the $5 needed to license its content into Rock Band 2.
