To get Rock Band up and running, we would have to spend a lot of cash:
Cost of a 32" LCD TV: $500
Cost of a Playstation 3: $400
Cost of Rock Band/Guitar Hero: $190
Which is to say, mostly, that I can't believe anyone buys a PS3, ever. Holy cow. But even an XBox or Wii will still break the bank. I'm going to need a better job (than sitting at home speculating about the cost of video games).
Have you considered craigslist as an option. Buying used dramatically decreases the cost of purchases. I don't know about your area, but out here *takes a quick look online* I can get a 32 inch lcd tv for 350, a Xbox 360 for 150, and I recently purchased rockband (with all accessories) for 100.
Just a thought if you're being budget conscious.

See, you seem to be under the impression that folks use craigslist down here.
To be fair, they do, a little, but there just aren't that many people. I haven't checked Memphis yet, though I suppose I could try there as well.
