I can't afford $300 for a Christmas gift, my budget is about $70.00.  She has an Xbox but no other equipment.  Is this something I can buy her the game and she can do something with it?  I do not know anything about this!

Or check out ebay, might be able to get the guitars, mic or drums really cheap on there.

It's been out long enough that you should be able to find a used set for much less than retail.

You could just buy the game, but the controllers or "instruments" is what makes the game what it is.

You could buy the game, and one "instrument" and she could play in solo mode. You could then add the other controllers later.

The idea is that someone plays drums, someone sings, and some people play guitar/bass. But you could just get the microphone, guitar, or drums, and then add the others later if you wanted.

Check around though, people sell these sets for cheap when they get sick of it and it takes up too much space.

Depends on how many people she'll be playing the game with.

As I recall, the drums, bass and guitar.

I've really only played it once and don't own it personally.

Rock Band is pointless without having the peripherals.



Need the drum kit, guitar and mic.




Mic and guitar are cheap and easy to find. Drums are the pain in the ass.

The game itself, and they sell, a mic, keyboard, guitars, drums. But only get what she wants to start with now, either a mic or guitar. Check out rummages or pawn shops to get the other peripherals when you can afford them.

Most video game specific stores sell used games because they take them in on trade. That might be a better bet than Craigslist, eBay, or trying to hunt things down individually yourself.

If you're near a decent sized city, there are probably at least two GameStops and five independent stores near you.

Hope you were able to help her out. I've got the whole setup sitting here for PS3 since ours died and the 4 is not backwards compatible. I think it's gonna get re-gifted to niece and nephew.

Go to game stop.  They sell used stuff.   Games are cheap, $5-60.

I hope you brush up on your drum skills because you are going to need them when she fires up that game and needs to recruit band members.

I have no drum skills!    But she's still at the age of hanging out with Mom is not cool.  The other day she was over and was so excited about a party she and her roommate are throwing.  An ugly Christmas sweater party so I asked, am I invited?    she turned beat red and said, well no, not exactly.  I told her she should just tell me I could come, her parties don't start until way after I'm asleep.
