Originally announced as November 23, the well-anticipated Rock Band will hit stores November 20, before Thanksgiving and Black Friday, Harmonix announced.

Rock Band picks up where the amazingly popular Guitar Hero games leave off and is expected to sell amazingly well despite the $200 price tag on the special edition. (The game itself is $59.99 but the special edition comes with a guitar, drum set and microphone)

Thre game will allow players to mix lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and vocals in music from legendary and contemporary artists. It’s designed for multiplayer but single players can use a career mode or compete online against other players. There is also a plethora of downloadable content planned, as well as a social networking site at Rockband.com, launching the same day as the game.
