How to get the complete Beatles Rockband set for $150. | September 10, 2009

I have formulated a brilliant idea, which I would love to share.

The Beatles Rockband is something that I have been looking forward to since it was announced on October 30, 2008. The game has 45 songs ready for you to play. The creators picked here and there to include songs from A Hard Day’s Night, Revolver, The White Album, Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper’s, and many more.

Not to mention, the guitars, drums and microphones from other music video games are entirely compatible with The Beatles Rockband.

And, the game venues are all famous venues where The Beatles made music history.

So, when the game finally debuted on Sept 9, I spent time figuring out how to get the entire set for cheaper than $250. I found a way, but it doesn’t include the special edition Beatles’ instruments. (However, it does work for any game system that supports Rockband.)

First, look on Ebay or Craigslist for the Rockband 2 set. I have found that you can get the entire set with a game for roughly $70 to $90.

Now, if you already have one piece, like a guitar, and want to buy the rest individually, you can do that. You may not be able to get the Rockband 2 game, but you’ll be getting it for the Beatles game. Usually, each individual insturment sells for $20, but on Craigslist you can occasionally find the pieces for less than $20.

(Since the game is 100 percent compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour, you can also substitute Rockband 2 parts for World Tour parts. However, the going price is usually more expensive. I haven’t found it cheaper than $90 on ebay.)

Now, once you have all your instruments, go forth and buy the game. Yes, it you still have to spend $59.99, but you end up spend about $100 less for an entire set.
