As a friendly reminder to all of your Green Day fans out there, Harmonix and MTV Games today have launched Green Day: Rock Band to both brick-and-mortar and online retailers nationwide. For our friends overseas, the game will hit stores on June 11.
Green Day: Rock Band follows the group through their career from their humble beginnings, with the release of albums like Dookie, to their rise to super-stardom with albums like American Idiot. There are 47 songs included on the game’s disc – to check out the full list, check out our coverage from some weeks ago.
Green Day: Rock Band contains the same three-party harmony technology first seen in The Beatles: Rock Band, allowing three vocalists to sing at once, and allows you to export all of the songs on the disc to your hard drive, to be playable with other Rock Band titles.
The game itself is available in two versions: the standalone title that costs the traditional $59.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and $49.99 on the Wii, and a version called Green Day: Rock Band PLUS, which contains an export key to allow the aforementioned exporting, along with the six previously released Green Day downloadable content packs, which is a value of $22. This package costs $69.99 on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but is not available on the Wii.
Are you going to pick up a copy of the game? Remember, a demo is also available, if you’ve yet to decide as to whether or not to make a purchase.
