Rock Band 4 Confirmed To Support Last Gen Rock Band Instruments
Harmonix has confirmed to IGN that Rock Band 4 will be compatible with old PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Rock Band instruments. For players to use their PlayStation 3 instruments on the PlayStation 4, all you have to do is plug in the wireless dongle for the instrument and you should be able to play. For players who want to use their Xbox 360 guitars on the Xbox One, you will have to purchase a special adapter which Harmonix claims will be low priced.
Instruments will not be cross company compatible however. In other words, PlayStation 3 instrument owners will be unable to play the Xbox One version of Rock Band 4 without purchasing new instruments and Xbox 360 instrument owners will be unable to play the PlayStation 4 version of Rock Band 4 without new instruments.
While it wasn’t confirmed that old Guitar Hero instruments will be compatible with the new Rock Band 4, it’s safe to assume that those who have Rock Band instruments will be able to just pick the game up when it launches later this year.
