When will RB2 drums be available in the UK?

Damn it Harmonix, we have a strange relationship, don't we?

You just can't seem to get it quite right. When RB1 came out we had to wait half a year to get our hands on it and when it did arrive the price was stupidly high.

So when RB2 rolled around it was a good chance to put things right, make up for past sins.

Then it all went pear-shaped again with a continual denials of release dates (leaving it to MS to leak the date in an ad campaign) and when it does show up, as magnificent as it is, the instruments fail to make the trip across the pond.

Why do you do this to me, Harmonix, why?

It's 2009 now and still no official word on RB2 instruments in the UK but MadCatz may have let things slip by confirming release dates for the cymbal add=ons for early Feb 09 - so it's probably a safe bet that the RB2 kit should be out by then.

Come on Harmonix, get the finger out.

That's even worse, at least we got the game.

Harmonix have been so inconsistent with their international releases.

Maybe it's me being naive but isn't most of Harmonix's responsibility just making the game? I thought distribution was EA and MTV's part...
