There's not much to tell here, so I'll keep this brief. I downloaded the Green Day: Rock Band demo today to hold me over until the full game arrives at my door next week. After playing both available songs, Welcome to Paradise and Boulevard of Broken Dreams (both on bass, of course), I exited the demo and, just before returning to the Dashboard, I was treated to a black screen with the Rock Band instrument logos, and the number "3." That's all. I told you there was not much to report.
But wait… What's this…?
There are the four standard logos: bass, drums, guitar, and vocals; but the vocal one has three mics. Well, no huge surprise there. Harmonies have been featured in both Beatles: and Green Day: Rock Band…
But there's a fifth logo… Is that…? YES! A keyboard! One of the most requested features for a band game. Honestly, I'm curious, and a little bit skeptical, about how it is going to work, but this could be a real game changer for the genre.
At the very least, it will make Pete Townsend's minute long keyboard solos more tolerable in the game!
