Nick's put up the awesome Rock Band 2 preview, so here's a GRandmasters' poll: how much would YOU shell out for RB2? (Not counting DLC songs.) "Extra goodies" on that first option include Nick's precious $300 ION drums, additional cymbals, disco lights or any of the crazy hardware that has a Rock Band branded on the box. Nick, did you buy that Rock Band smoke machine for the office yet? I looked at putting together the standalone instruments, to get around paying for a microphone in the RB2 starter kit. Assuming that the RB2 instruments are the same price as the RB1 ones (I bet they have an extra $10 tacked on), I found just one wireless guitar ($59), a drum kit ($79) and a RB2 song disc ($59) amounting to $190 pretax! I guess the smrt thing to do is buy a RB2 starter kit and donate the mic to a charitable cause who donates extra microphones to hungry families.
