Rock out (virtually)

Forget the Wii and the iPhone, this was what we wanted in our Christmas stockings. Video game Rock Band has joined the Guitar Hero fray as the latest video game to test your skills at – just rocking out, really.

You’ve got a controller, a mini drum kit and a USB mic to play with, so you can headbang to your heart’s content in the privacy of your own home while you give your rockordination skills a good workout.

And, as you can play with up to three other people, it’s just like being in a real band (in your bedroom, of course). Air guitar? What’s that? As one reviewer put it, “Give up everything else. This is your life now”.
