Rock Band 4 in all its iterations is on sale this week at GameStop and Amazon, with the deals including the lowest price ever on the game-and-guitar bundle, developer Harmonix announced today.

The guitar package regularly costs $129.99, and was discounted to $99.99 for Black Friday. GameStop has it for $79.99 this week, which is just $20 more than the regular price of the game itself.

Rock Band 4's band-in-a-box bundle launched at $249.99 and is available for $199.99 this week, which is the same discount that some retailers offered during Black Friday. And players who already have last-generation Rock Band controllers can pick up the game on its own for $20 off — that's $59.99 on Xbox One (including the Legacy Game Controller Adapter, which is required to use Xbox 360 instruments) and $39.99 on PlayStation 4.

All of these deals are available at GameStop, and Amazon appears to be matching GameStop's prices (although the online retailer is currently sold out of the full-band set on Xbox One). Note that GameStop charges additional handling fees of $5 on the guitar bundle and $10 on the band-in-a-box package, so if you want to avoid paying extra, see if the items are in stock at your local store.

In addition to offering the aforementioned discounts, Harmonix is adding six new tracks to the Rock Band 4 library this week. Here's the full list:

  • Coldplay - "Adventure of a Lifetime"
  • Ellie Goulding - "On My Mind"
  • Justin Bieber - "What Do You Mean?"
  • One Direction - "Drag Me Down"
  • Sam Hunt - "Leave the Night On"
  • Weezer - "Thank God for Girls"

You'll be able to buy each song for the usual $1.99 starting tomorrow, Dec. 29, and can check them all out in the video above.
