Expected out this holiday season for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, the Rock Band series expands the virtual band to seven: drums, lead and bass guitars, vocals, harmony vocals (new!) and keyboards (new!). The keyboard can also go MIDI by connecting to a computer.

The game also introduces a Pro mode, where users can learn to play the real thing: Start at Easy and work up to Expert. Notably, Pro Guitar mode features notated guitar and bass performances that can be played with either the new Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar simulated guitar controller from Mad Catz or the Fender/Harmonix-developed Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster full-sized six-string electric guitar that doubles as a game controller.
