Pre-order boxes for Rock Band's Stage Kit have begun turning up, giving us our first look at the all-in-one device. It appears...functional, albeit a little strange, since it looks less like something designed to aid in rocking and more like something that fell out of a Ghostbusters/HG Wells collaboration, and is now hell-bent on mankind's ultimate destruction. If you're willing to risk the future of out species - and pay $US 99 - for smoke and purple lighting while you play a videogame, that decision is yours and yours alone to make.
(Oh, and before you ask, no, I don't know why this one is explicitly marked for the Xbox 360. Maybe there's dongle issues!)
