How much fun is this? The franchise “The Rock Band” has decided to bring you into the band in a more realistic fashion offering you a virtual reality experience called "Rock Band VR". This software promises to take you to the next level of feeling like a rock star -- as much as you can while holding a pretend guitar.

Not feeling the Van Halen love? No worries you’ll be able to choose from dozens of songs to play along with in the game including selections from:

  • Aerosmith
  • Van Halen
  • Bon Jovi
  • Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
  • Foo Fighters
  • Oasis
  • Alice in Chains and many more.

The above video gives you the low down on how the game works and it’s scoring systems designed from the group up for VR. One way to think about it is, if traditional Rock Band is about nailing that perfect take for a studio recording, Rock Band VR is about the creative freedom that comes from a live performance."

Rock Band VR will be released on Thursday, March 23.
