Rock Band 4 has arrived, marking the potential start of a new plastic instrument era for gaming. And while Mad Catz has crafted new instruments for a new generation of consoles, the option is also there to use instruments from previous generations. In the case of the Xbox One version, a legacy adapter is required to use old wireless instruments. There's just one problem. The adapter is nowhere to be found.
Major digital retailers, including Amazon, GameStop, Target, and Best Buy are all showing the standalone Xbox One version of Rock Band 4 with the legacy adapter as unavailable. It is also not available in stores, with many of these same major retailers reporting low stock numbers or never having received it at all. Shacknews reached out to several GameStop managers in the Los Angeles area, all of whom cited a shipping issue and are not expecting new stock until Friday at the earliest.
Shacknews has reached out to Harmonix for comment, but from the looks of it, Xbox One users will have to take a few days to warm up the band before they can take the stage.
