Don’t worry about buying new controllers just yet.
Though the popular rhythm game Rock Band will make its return this year, the frustration of buying expensive new instrument-controllers will not. Harmonix announced today that Rock Band 4 will be compatible with the instruments from older games. For Playstation it will be as simple as plugging them in, while XBOX will require a “low cost” adapter.
No word yet on whether the rival series Guitar Hero (also making a return this year) will offer the same convenience. Both games are expected to be released in late 2015.
