I will be in Vegas covering CES, so I won’t get an immediate crack to relive the 80’s Super Pop group Hall & Oates on Rock Band
3 DLC until I return. However, the rest of you can take break out your favorite 80’s gear and play along to a three pack of Hall & Oates hits, including “Private Eyes” and “Maneater”. I know a certain EIC that is probably salivating at the thought right now. For you synthesizer fans, all three tracks will have full keyboard support, so prepare to go crazy practicing your favorite keytar moves.
Pricing will be $5.49/440 MS Pts/550 Wii Pts for the “Hall & Oates Pack 01” pack, $1.9/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts per song and $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade. For those of you too young to know who Hall & Oats are, take a listen to the songs.

Hall & Oates – “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)
