Rock Band 3 Brings Pianos Into the EquationS

Attention, toy instrument connoisseurs! Make room in your pretend studio for a new addition: the piano. Yes, Rock Band 3 is bringing the ivories to the video game world.

According to this teaser image from the Rock Band: Green Day demo on Xbox Live, a keyboard is coming to the upcoming game in addition to guitar, drums and three-part vocal harmonies.

It'll be interesting to see how close to a real keyboard the controller they give you is. Will it teach you the basics of playing the piano, sort of like how getting really good on Rock Band drums makes you 40% of a real drummer? Or will it be five colored buttons on a plastic piano? Time will tell! [Kotaku]
