Well, what do you know:

Quote:
Warner has confirmed Lego Rock Band and here are the first in-game screenshots and info.

"The game, which will allow families, tweens and teens to experience a wild journey to rock stardom where they can "Build a Band and Rock the Universe", will be available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii home videogame console. Lego Rock Band for Nintendo DS will be co-developed by TT Games and Harmonix in partnership with Backbone Entertainment, a Foundation 9 Entertainment studio. All versions are scheduled for 2009.

"Lego Rock Band combines the multiplayer music experience of Rock Band with the fun, customization and humour of the Lego videogame franchise packed with brilliant chart-topping songs and classic favourites suitable for younger audiences, including:

Blur: "Song 2"
Carl Douglas: "Kung Fu Fighting"
Europe: "The Final Countdown"
Good Charlotte: "Boys and Girls"
Pink: "So What"

"Players will become rockers as they embark on a journey to stardom that the whole family can enjoy as they work their way through local venues, stadiums and fantasy locations on Earth and beyond, that mimic the imaginative settings that the Lego world offers. Also continuing the LEGO "build-and-play" gaming experience, players will be able to create their own Lego Rock Band style as they customize their minifigure avatars, band and entourage, including roadies, managers and crew. Lego Rock Band supports Rock Band instruments, as well as other music game controllers."

So now we know how TLG spent those extra profits. I am rather sure that TLG had to spend some money to get minifigs to the game.

I just wondering if TLG spends all the extra profit to different lisences (Disney must have costed a lot)? Seems that they are just trying to gather new customers while the old customers still have problems with TLG itself. Online PaB might be one of the best services that TLG has started recently and look how bad that is going. The list of the parts is miniscule and the prices are, compared to BL, rather high. They should improve that service instead of getting their hands on more deals...

Would this game cost LEGO? Or would it be the Rock Band group buying the LEGO license?

I have a hard time believing that other toy brands wouldn't have tried to contact the makers of the Rock Band. It would have been easy for Rock Band to "switch to kid mood" simply by introducing more kid friendly songs and graphics. LEGO part is just "easier way" to do that.

It could have been Barbie Rock Band as well winking smiley
