Rock Band is going portable with the newly announced Rock Band Unplugged for the Sony PSP. Backbone Entertainment is bringing the franchise to the portable platform by the end of this year.
There will not be any peripheral attachments as with Guitar Hero on the Nintendo DS. All input is handled by the ‘Left,’ ‘Up,’ ‘Triangle,’ and ‘Circle’ buttons. The player can switch between guitar, drums, bass, and “vocals” (although we won’t physically be singing, merely tapping buttons) using the L and R shoulder buttons.
Confirmed artists include Blink 182, Boston, AFI, Kansas, Lit, and The Police. No multiplayer support will be available, but you will be able to access the in-game store via wi-fi.
