LEGO: Rock Band Coming To The PS3 This Holiday.

And furthering that we didn't even like Guitar Hero/Rock Band to begin with. We've absolutely no idea why Harmonix think it's a good idea to put out another music game on top The Beatles: Rock Band, last years Rock Band 2 and all the other hundreds of billions of Guitar Hero games that are out/on their way.

Alas, if you care, LEGO: Rock Band has just been announced which features, erm, LEGO characters. Apparently there will be new elements of gameplay, but until we're told exactly what we're going to assume it's going to be the same as other music games — you pretend to play instruments by pressing different colours which you're supposed to assume represent all the notes on a real instrument.

The game will feature Blur, Pink and Good Charlotte. It's being aimed at "tweens" apparently.
"We're thrilled to offer another LEGO branded gaming experience that will deliver humorous and social play for families and friends," said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Vice President, the LEGO Group. "LEGO Rock Band is built around the same values of imagination and family-friendly creative role play that is present in other LEGO videogames. It will deliver innovative new elements of game play that complement the fun of the Rock Band experience."</blockquote>

One good thing is that the game will work with Rock Band or "other music game" controllers, so you won't need to buy another set of plastic.
