Considering how well it's sold, I don't think this is a pressing concern on their end

Given the discussion about this I've seen elsewhere, they could have sold even more, but oh well. I will stick with Guitar Hero.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'm kind of glad only because then there isn't an achievement for playing the game with a controller.
Still, Harmonix made the first two GH games, so it's a feature they themselves implemented. I guess they thought that it's not worth doing for Rock Band.

^And Neversoft reimplemented it too, since my understanding is that while Activision kept the name they lost the source code.

Because when a game then does not include your preferred insipid mode-of-play you bitch about it as though it was a Zelda game that forgot to include a sword?

Who's bitching ? I just said I was disappointed and am not going to buy it, I'm not picketing EA's headquarters am I ?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Having fun with the 2 Disturbed songs. Time to go on marketplace and pick up more songs, as these are the only 2 I've downloaded since picking the game up.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I just picked up a bunch of songs off the DC, any recommendations for good hard guitar tracks?

Sorting the DLC list by guitar tier can give you some indication. Then it's a trip to YouTube I find!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Rock Band 2 confirmed a day ago due to a poll asking people to choose the next box art... and it appears to be listed in game store databases as a November 08 release. If they have song creation, I'm not even going to bother with GH4/WT. Woot.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'll pick up GH4, just for to have more songs to play, but only if I can pick up just the game and not the instruments. Even though I don't think the rock band drums will work with it, I'm not keeping 2 sets of drums around.

I do want the Union Jack'd guitar that the guy played in the demo though.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, I'm not going to buy a freaking second drum kit. Too bad MS and Sony are just going to roll over and let them do this shit. Not bad enough that there are two consoles that are almost the same, now there are going to be three damn drum kits on the market.
