Rock Band Blitz Blizes Onto PSN Today, XBLA Tomorrow

Looking to change something up in your Rock Band lifestyle? Tired of plastic instruments? Harmonix has you covered with the release of Rock Band Blitz for the PlayStation Network today and Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow.

Instead of playing in a manner that we’ve been used to with Rock Band 3, the game plays in a manner similar to that of Harmonix‘s earlier titles FreQuency and Amplitude. You’ll trade in your plastic instruments for a traditional controller as you try to hit notes as the music track moves on. We played a demo of the game back at PAX East, so you can read up on our impressions for what we thought of the game.

The game comes with 25 songs built in, as well as the ability to use any song you have in your Rock Band 3 playlist and is available today, August 28th, for the PSN for $15 and tomorrow, August 29th, for the XBLA for 1200 Microsoft Points.

Here’s the full list of the 25 songs available for Rock Band Blitz, which are now also available for use in Rock Band 3:

⁃ The All-American Rejects – “Kids in the Street”

⁃ Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away”

⁃ Barenaked Ladies – “One Week”

⁃ Blink-182 – “Always”

⁃ Collective Soul – “Shine”

⁃ Elton John – “I’m Still Standing”

⁃ Fall Out Boy – “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More ‘Touch Me'”

⁃ Foo Fighters – “These Days”

⁃ Foster the People – “Pumped Up Kicks”

⁃ Fun. ft. Janelle Monáe – “We Are Young”

⁃ Great White – “Once Bitten Twice Shy”

⁃ Kelly Clarkson – “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”

⁃ Kool & The Gang – “Jungle Boogie”

⁃ Iron Maiden – “The Wicker Man”

⁃ Living Colour – “The Cult of Personality”

⁃ Maroon 5 – “Moves Like Jagger”

⁃ My Chemical Romance – “Sing”

⁃ P!nk – “Raise Your Glass”
