Harmonix has given us some details about how Amazon customers will be on the receiving end of a discount when picking up the Rock Band 4 Xbox adapter. This adapter is required if you want to use your old Rock Band instruments to play on the upcoming Xbox One title. Not everyone has new equipment after all.
The Xbox 360 instrument adapter will be priced at $25 if you were to purchase it as a standalone device, but Harmonix has revealed that if you place a pre-order with the code “RB4ADAPTER” on Amazon, you will be able to get a $15 discount.
So this adapter will cost you just $10. I wonder how much they are making with each sale that they can discount it that heavily. Microsoft has done away with native support for Xbox 360 peripherals on the Xbox One, that’s why you need this adapter. With this adapter, you will be able to use your guitars and drums from the previous game series.
It definitely pays to get the adapter rather than buying more expensive new gear, so good on Harmonix for offering this adapter when they could have just made people buy all brand new stuff. You have to respect them for that.
