You’ll have to pay if you want to use old instruments in Rock Band 4

Players won’t be able to use their old Rock Band peripherals in the upcoming Rock Band 4, unless they’re prepared to cough up some cash.

Developer Harmonix revealed all the instruments that will be compatible with Rock Band 4, but did say that if you have an Xbox One, you will need a special $20 adapter for those plastic band parts to work.

There is a bit of good news and bad news though: the good news is that the adapter will be included in the disc-only version of the game. The bad part? Well, the Xbox One version of the game will be $20 more expensive than its PlayStation 4 counterpart.

To make things easier, Eurogamer has created a chart so that you can easily see which instruments will be compatible.


Ten news songs have also been added to the track listing:

  • 38 Special – “Caught Up In You”
  • Arctic Monkeys – “Arabella”
  • The Both – “Milwaukee”
  • Cake – “Short Skirt/Long Jacket”
  • Little Big Town – “Little White Church”
  • Lucius – “Turn It Around”
  • The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – “The Impression That I Get”
  • The Protomen – “Light Up The Night”
  • Soundgarden – “Superunknown”
  • Tijuana Sweetheart – “Pistol Whipped”

Thos are some pretty sweet tracks admittedly, but it kind of feels like living room rebels are already having to pay ‘The Man’ in order to enjoy them with their old gear. Don’t quit your day jobs just yet, kids!
