Harmonix and MTV Games announced plans today to release Rock Band Unplugged exclusively for the PSP. The game will be available in North America and Europe beginning June 9, 2009.
Rock Band Unplugged brings the full band experience to your PSP by combining traditional beat match gameplay with key elements from both Rock Band and Rock Band 2, such as overdrive and chords. Your hands are the “peripherals” in Rock Band Unplugged, allowing you to take direct control of the lead/bass guitars, drums and vocals. In addition, players can expect fully functional modes like World Tour, Band Survival and Warm Up along with a deep character creator.
Rock Band Unplugged will feature over 40 master-recordings including nine exclusive new songs that will debut on the PSP system before being offered as downloadable content for console versions of Rock Band. Plus, Rock Band Unplugged will include the first fully-featured in-game store for downloadable content on the PSP system in the North American and European markets, taking advantage of the PSP’s wireless capabilities. The in-game store will be powered by PlayStation Network, and players will be able to use their existing PlayStation Network account to purchase tracks. PSP owners will also have the option of purchasing tracks via PlayStation Store on the PC.
The following tracks will launch exclusively through Rock Band Unplugged on the PSP for a limited time before becoming downloadable content for the other platforms:
3 Doors Down - "Kryptonite"
AFI - "Miss Murder"
Alice in Chains - "Would?"
Audioslave - "Gasoline"
Black Tide - "Show Me the Way"
Blink 182 - "What's My Age Again"
Freezepop - "Less Talk More Rokk"
Jackson 5 - "ABC"
