Rock Band USB Hub Needs to be Plugged In


If you’re planning on picking up Rock Band next month, you’ve no doubt wondered how much room it was going to take up and where to put it away. Another question that’s just as pertinent is how are you going to plug all of it in – while PS3 owners are in the clear with the four USB ports on the system (and a wireless guitar), Xbox 360 systems only have three USB ports (and a wired guitar). That’s even more of a problem if you’re using a wireless adapter to get online with your Xbox 360, since that’s one of your precious USB ports used up.

But that’s why Rock Band comes with a USB hub. Made by ViPowER (who?), you’ll need to plug its short cable into the wall to supply power. That’s going to be a real pain if your setup isn’t a convenient one.

Between the wireless guitar, free online play and no need for a USB hub, the PS3 seems like the definitive version of Rock Band right now.
