Put away those plastic peripherals, don't dust off those drums. Rock Band Blitz won't need anything extra when it launches a little later this week, and it's bringing with it a killer tracklisting.

The new game hits PlayStation Network on August 28th (for around US$14.99), and Xbox Live Arcade on August 29th (for 1200 MS Points). It feels like every second song on that list is a favourite, but I must admit a certain delight at the prospect of belting out I'm Still Standing along with Elton.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
