Rock Band...Now With Keyboards & Real Guitars

I am sure that you have heard any and, possibly, all criticism from older musicians about how music games are "the devil" and how kids, these days, should be playing real guitars and learning how to play real music. Harmonix agrees and Rock Band 3 will do just that as well as add keyboards, three-part harmonies and Huey Lewis and the News. In addition to these elements, there will be 83 new songs to perform, new scoring features, a pro mode that will essentially teach you the song and, did I mention, keyboards. This means my dream of rocking out to Bohemian Rhapsody will finally come to fruition just like on the season finale of Glee. Yes, there will childbirth, dancers and Sue Sylvester as a judge. After the jump, check out a list of a few of the new songs featured in Rock Band 3 as well a couple of videos explaining some of the new elements to this edition.
