I play Rock Band like a champ, and when I'm with my crew I'm usually on drums. I'm a drummer, and I love playing them, and the included drum controller always seemed just fine to me. Kotaku found this photo of the premium Rock Band 2 kit and I've decided I must have it. UPDATE: OK, so this kit doesn't ship with Rock Band 2, it's an $300 optional purchase.

Instead of just four heads, the badass looking kit gives you four heads, hi hat, crash, and ride cymbals. This kit, which will come with Rock Band 2 certainly beats the Guitar Hero: World Tour offering, but it also signals something unusual: the start of a music games arms war. I hope they bring it hard.

DISCUSSION

No no, this is stupid. It just maps the pads to some cymbals. It doesn't ADD any inputs,and the game doesn't make any distinction between the yellow pad, and the yellow cymbal.

If I'm paying $300 for a game kit, the game had better know to make a cymbal sound when I hit the cymbal, and not a tom sometimes.
