Microsoft Jumps the Gun for Rock Band Wireless Mic Compatibility

ilgwirelessmicrophoneSo, if you have walked into a Gamestop recently, or turned on your Xbox 360, you would have seen the advertisements for the recently released Wireless Microphones.  The microphones are the same ones that came with Lips, and the one mic is running with an MSRP of $49.99.

However, there are a few issues here that Microsoft really has to work out with this new accessory.  First off would be notifying your game developers that you are releasing the device in question so they are not bombarded with questions as to where is the support.  If you look at the picture, and the Xbox.com page for the wireless microphone, it prominently shows the Rock Band logo, but the support patch will not be released for Rock Band until September 9th.  Secondly, if you are going to release one wireless mic at a $50 price point, you might want to wait until the Lips blister packs are completely cleared out.  You can pick up Lips at a lot of retailers via clearance for $30 and it includes not one, but two wireless microphones.  Just a heads up there.

That said, I am happy to at least know that the patch for support in Rock Band is imminent.

    Oops! A kink in the communication there. It looks neat though.

    Just today I walked into GameStop and saw the above pictured microphone on sale for $50. I then saw the Lips game with two pack-in Mics for the same price and picked those up instead. This post was the place I could find actual information regarding support for Rock Band.

    I'm hoping these mics will work with Beatles Rock Band so I can work in 3 part harmonies. Thank you very much for the post and info.

    Yes they will work with The Beatles: Rock Band at launch. As a matter of fact, that is what the delay is tied into. They want the cross compatibility to happen for all their products on the same day. Microsoft released the mics three weeks early, because they had been listed with a 9/9/09 release date.
