Defunct Games looks at the Microsoft Wireless Mic that won't work as well as it should

I really like Microsoft's hardware line for the PC as they've done some damn good stuff. The 360? Well, there's some good in there but the pricing has been really, well, outrageous. Take for example my picture of what you can get for $300. I mean, seriously.

Cyril received the Microsoft Wireless Mic with his Beatles package like I did. I didn't focus on the peripheral itself but he's gone on and pointed out the shortcomings and bad pricing model of the thing. I haven't tried it with Rock Band 2 and it's a good thing because it doesn't work. Really? Shouldn't the Harmonix folks who are all buddy buddy with Microsoft have patched the game to work with it by now? You'd think so.
