CES 2008: Mad Catz to make Rock Band peripherals

CES 2008, Gaming

rockband03.jpgGames accessories firm Mad Catz Interactive has signed a deal to make peripherals for Rock Band, the multi-instrumental rival to Guitar Hero for the hearts of rawk-loving console gamers.

The first fruit of the deal will be wired and wireless bass guitars, a drum kit with proper wooden sticks, and a wired microphone. All are expected to go on sale in the first half of this year.

It’s good news for owners of the game, but I for one would like to see this deal expand further – with new peripherals released alongside downloadable patches to let you boost your Rock Band with other instruments. Saxophone! Banjo! Theremin! Come on, you know it makes sense…
