Updated: As of yesterday, the Rock Band 3 Squier is available for pre-order at Best Buy
. It seems that no one other than the US can pre-order the Squier, and the pre-sales are exclusive to Best Buy.
Original Story: Well, Chad Kroeger got his wish. The Nickelback front man can now sleep easy knowing that gamers can no longer waste their time
playing fake guitars on Rock Band.
Fender has come to their aid announcing the Squier for Rock Band 3.
The Squier is a real guitar that can be played on a regular amp or plugged into your Xbox 360 to jam away with your buddies on line. Fender delivered news
today containing the price and release date for the new controller/guitar.
The Squier will be available on March 1st, 2011 and will set you back $279.99. I hope you plan on packing lunches for the next four months.
