Has anyone imported this from overseas and if so, where from and what price did you get including shipping ?
Btw, has someone discovered whether it's possible to use Entropay to purchase content from the American PSN?

I believe you can , the guy I swapped High Velocity Bowling for got it by using Entropay & the US PSN so should work for Rock Band DLC.

Hmm, I'm just looking at the Entropay account fees:

Open an EntroPay Account Free
Create an EntroPay Virtual Card Free
Load an EntroPay Card from a personal credit or debit card 4.95%
Spend using an EntroPay Card Free
Return money to a personal credit or debit card $6.00 / £3.00 / €4.50
Destroy an EntroPay Virtual Card Free

4.95% to load money? Damn! I think PayPal allowed you to load money without any fees ... in fact, I think they encouraged you to load up your account balance ...

the GH people have trademarked heaps of other _______ Hero games.
I think I can hold out for a Aus release of Rock Band but then I think maybe the US version would be better cause then I can get DLC straight away instead of waiting months for AUS PSN to release DLC like they do with GH3. Im also waiting to see if the patch for the GH3 guitars for Rock Band will ever get released cause I already have 2 GH3 guitars & the singstar mics which work so Id only need the game & drums.
Man, I reckon that patch will never be released. I know I'm being pessimistic, but probably being realistic ...

Once I get my RB from the USA ... I'll be super happy if (1) Entropay works (and not a scam lol) and if (2) I can use Entropay successfully on the American PSN (I have an American PSN account setup)

:D
Yeah im really tempted to buy it from the US like yourself, also a fender guitar would be nice, & I really want to play them drums. Be cool to have a MyPS3 band & jam together online.

I'm hesitant on buying a US version because of the same reason...

But also because if the AU store gets different tracks that might not be able to be played on the US version. If a Silverchair track became available in the AU store- id be hell pissed.

And if you cant play online with others that have the AU version...

Just my thoughts/worries.

Yea, I just thought of that! lol. If that happens, maybe purchase RB (game disc only) again, but the Australian version? Sell the American game disc online to some American lol.

Instruments should still be the same.

But I guess we won't really know if we can play against Australian people with the US version until we try it with the game disc ... (and possibly have to wait for the Australian release still)

We won't know if Australian PSN RB content would work on the American version unless we try it ... but we would have to wait until RB's released in Australia, and the PSN store gets updated (which takes FOREVER!)
Well it appears now that Amazon has increased the price of the drum kit to around US $80 and you cn now import these to Australia for about AUD $40 shipping for priority courier. They also have a heap of games and various other ietms including the Rock Band game only and GTA 4 (US 59.99 for game only or US 89.99 for special Ed which should be uncut if you compare to the Australian versions of the previous games) that they will ship to Aus too.

They still wont ship the bundle though.

Hey nightphant, has that ebay seller contacted you about your ebay purchase yet? Whether it's been shipped or not?

I'm probably going to give him 2/5 stars or something for communication ... >_>

Edit: He replied to my e-mail (finally lol)

Dear wutang01,

It takes about 2-3 business days for process of international shipments as stated on the item page so your item will be shipping soon. Also tracking number will be post to your order details. Thanks.

Tell EA to screw off and spend your money on something else.

They might learn next time due to poor Aussie sales. I can't believe this came out last November in the US.

It's as poor as our Aussie Blu ray support - crap titles overpriced
Australia is a very small fish in a big pond, do you really think EA will care if we spend our money on something else. America, Japan & Europe are much bigger markets & will always be more important to companies like EA. The Australian release has been pushed back because they have been concentrating on fixing issues with the guitar & drums & replacing these parts to customers in the US. At least when it is released in Australia it will be without any problems with the hardware.
What were the problems with Rock Band in the USA? Connection or wiring problems in the guitars and drums?
The guitars had issues, they were breaking only after a few hours play (I think it related to the strummer, ill look it up), they worked out what was the problem & offerred everyone new replacements & all future bundles were repackaged with the new guitar.

There were some reports of the drums also breaking from people getting a little carried away & stomping on the pedal, afterall it is plastic, Im not sure what they did about this but it wasnt as big a issue as the guitar. When I finally do get the set I think Ill play the drums barefoot & try not to be too heavy on the pedal.

EDIT: This link refers to the guitar issues which are now fixed. kotaku.com/

Also the wiki page says the bass pedal was snapping in half so Id take it easy with the pedal for sure. en.wikipedia.org/
Oh snap. What happens if my guitar/drum broke?

They won't fix/replace it will they ... seeing that I'm not in America.

Guess it's risky. Probably have to purchase a 2nd peripheral hey ... =/
You should be ok with the guitar now seeing they have fixed the issue but just be careful with the bass pedal, common sense says you shouldnt be hitting it too hard with your foot but I can see myself getting a little carried away on the drums LOL, another reason why Im thinking of waiting for the Aus release so I can return it easily if needed.

I wonder if it'd work if ... I purchase the Australian bundle ... put my American equipment in the box, and return it ...

That'd mean I still have: American game disc, Australian equipment
Im sure EA would still replace anything under the 60 day return warranty, you would just have to send it all back to America thou so it might cost you a bit. Id be a bit annoyed if something broke say on day 61 LOL

I wonder if showing my ebay invoice is sufficient enough in saying when I purchased it ...

And day 61? Yea ... I would be pissed too lol
Thats a interesting question cause maybe EA would say that the warranty started when the seller purchased the bundles.
I have not heard anything from the seller yet. I will allow him until tomorrow and then start bugging him. I was hoping to have it by the weekend instead I guess it will be Monday or Tuesday (all going well) before I am drumming and strumming.

As far as parts go.... If you get a little carried away and break the footpedal, you can buy replacements. Not to mention the drums etc as I mentioned before are now available via Amazon.

I guess all the what ifs come into play but man, I have been hanging to look at this game for quite some time and if I have to pay a little more to do so by running teh risk that a peripheral may break, then hey I am prepared to do that.

@nightphant, I'm expecting the seller to ship the game out tomorrow.
The day after AT THE LATEST.

And whilst checking out on ebay, I noticed that the seller wrote that a tracking number will be provided. Which should be good!

And I checked his positive feedback record, he's sold quite a few Rock Band bundles to happy customers.

We're probably too impatient hey ... lol!
The guy does check out and that double with the fact that the package is fully trackable is why I went with him.

I think you are right about being impatient though..... Cant wait !!

I still haven't even been notified of my purchase being shipped, or a tracking number provider either!
