Hi there - My husband and I are looking to spend part of IRS refund this year on a Wii and Rock Band 2. I have surfed around and have gotten lots of different information regarding what we need to do this. At this point, we dont even have a Wii, but some friends have one and the kids love it so we decided to get the Wii for the kids and the Rock Band 2 for us. We could just as easily buy a PS3 or XBox 360, I suppose.
Anyway, I have been pricing out components and have heard lots of different things on different sites regarding what is compatible with what and so forth. Here are my (first) questions:
Will we need a controller for each instrument component we add? I was hoping to start with two controllers but was wanting two guitars and the drum set. Some products say they need the controllers and some say they don't.
Which components (if any) are compatible with both Guitar Hero and Rock Band games? I don't have either games at this point, but I would prefer to buy guitars and a drum set that will work with either to give us the options later.
Do you guys have any recommendations on which drum set/guitars to buy? I know there are lots of different types/brands of components out there. My husband is wanting a tricked out drum set with the hard hat add ons.
And is there anything else I need to know before I buy all this stuff?
Thanks for any help - this is a big investment, I just dont want to get stuck with something we don't enjoy.
