You can put this one in the “better late than never” category, as the Demo for Rock Band 3 is now available on PSN and Xbox Live. It will feature four songs in Quickplay mode, two venues and the ability to use the legacy guitars to emulate the base keyboard. The demo is currently free to get on PSN, but is only available to Xbox Live Gold members until Nov 12, when it is open to all Xbox Live members.

I just purchased my keyboard and game on Friday and have had a blast with it so far. Here are the four songs from the demo you get to tackle until you purchase a full copy:
  • Spacehog – “In the Meantime”
  • White Stripes – “Hardest Button to Button”
  • Slipknot – “Before I Forget”
  • Foreigner – “Cold As Ice”
