Best option for 'Rock Band' 360 owners.
After months of steady 'Rock Band 4' info, owners of Xbox 360 'Rock Band' and 'Guitar Hero' hardware finally have solid details on how they'll be able to move forward to the Xbox One. The 'Rock Band 4 Game & Legacy Controller Adapter Bundle' at $79.99 contains a disc copy of 'Rock Band 4' and the Legacy Game Controller Adapter, a necessary component for getting those old 360 guitars and drum kits working on the Xbox One.
