Music games are making a comeback this year, with new editions of both Guitar Hero and Rock Band on the horizon. Thanks to a listing on Amazon, we know when gamers can get their hands on Rock Band 4, as well as how much it will cost.

According to a listing from the online retailer (a page that has since been taken offline), Rock Band 4 will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 6. If you already own a plethora of plastic instruments from previous Rock Band purchases, you will likely be able to pick up Rock Band 4 for $59.99 and use all your old instruments.

If, however, you sold all your plastic instruments at a garage sale, diving back into Harmonix's band simulator will cost a lot more. The full band set up – guitar, drums, microphone and the game – will set you back $249.99.

The bundle that includes both the game and a new guitar will retail for $129.99, according to Toys "R" Us. These prices could be subject to change, but it's interesting to see that the guitar and game combo for Rock Band 4 is a full $30 more expensive than the new Guitar Hero game from Actvision, also coming later this year. Guitar Hero Live and the new guitar for the game will retail for $99. 

Though they share plenty in common, both of these new music games have a number of features that set them apart from each another. Guitar Hero Live features a redesigned guitar controller and will offer live-action footage, as opposed to the cartoony look of the older Guitar Hero titles.

Rock Band 4 will still use the same instruments from the previous Rock Band games. This time, it looks like Harmonix is really doubling down on the fantasy of letting players create a true-to-life band, including all the difficult choices bands make along the way to stardom. 

Rock Band 4 will arrive on October 6 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Guitar Hero Live will be released sometime this fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
