Green Day Rock Band Is Coming!

I saw that Green Day: Rock Band is coming out next month, and I can't wait! I'm a big fan of their music, and a big fan of the game. I plan to get it when it comes out, but the bad thing about games is that they are expensive. For a new release on XBox 360 or Playstation 3 you're looking at around $60 or more. So I did a little research on finding the best deal.

One key to this game is exporting the songs. Green Day: Rock Band comes with 47 songs, and you can export them all to play them with your existing Rock Band or Rock Band 2 game. Similar to Lego Rock Band, you have to pay a licensing fee to export the songs. If you preorder the game from Gamestop, you get a code to export the songs for free.

However, if you order the game from, you save $2 off the retail price and get a $10 gift certificate toward your next video game purchase, so you basically get the same $10 off. Of course Amazon offers the preorder guarantee, so if the price goes down before the game is released, you get the lower price. So Amazon saves you a couple dollars, and possibly more, so that's where I'm heading to order the game.

Note: There is also a Green Day: Rock Band Plus which includes the export code plus a code to get the other 6 Green Day songs already existing in the Rock Band Store, so go this route if you haven't downloaded them yet!
