5.0 out of 5 stars Takes the game to a new level! October 31, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Bundle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently purchased the keyboard from my local store (sorry Amazon--couldn't wait). I reviewed the keyboard on amazon a little under the game listing, so I will try not to repeat everything I wrote under Rock Band 3.

First-It's a ton of fun and really a fantastic addition to the game. I know that not all songs have keyboard parts, so it is a little limiting, but for the songs that have keyboards it's great. I hope they will re-release songs like Journey's Don't Stop Believing and add the keyboard part.

Pro-keys is challenging because there are 25 keys instead of just 5 buttons like the guitar has. You actually have to "practice" to reach expert level. I've been playing piano for 25 years and I have to play the songs a few times just to get through hard level. Of course, that could just mean that I suck after 25 years, but who knows?

I have a feeling the visual part of this will be similar to Pro-Guitar. The screen probably shows about 15 keys (black and white) at a time and then it shifts left to right during the song to show other keys. That is probably the most confusing and difficult part. In the old rockband when playing a guitar or drums, the screen is static and doesn't shift from left to right, but similar to the old rockbands, the notes still come down a sort of highway. You really have to see it to know what i mean. Regardless, it can be pretty hard to keep up with the finger adjustments. It definitely requires some practice.

YOU WON'T LEARN TO PLAY PIANO BY PLAYING THIS GAME. Just thought I'd get that out there. I would take a lesson if you want to learn how to play. The game play doesn't necessarily go along with how you would play it on a piano.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous price for this bundle November 29, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Bundle
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Rock band is rock band BUT why in the heck would ANYONE pay this kind of money for this bundle when you can buy the game for $40 and the keyboard for $70 separately. Oh, let's see, let me pay an extra $140 just so Ii don't have to go them separately? Great buy!

The addition of the keyboard to the Rock Band game was an excellent choice. The songs in the game are kind of limited.
