Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Wow, that new set list for Rock Band 2 looks wonderful! Dream Theater, Smashing Pumpkins, Journey, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Megadeth and Talking Heads even?

Too awesome. I don't have RB1 and even though I really want to buy it, it sounds like I'm better off just being patient and waiting for RB2 then buying a used copy of RB1 on the cheap to get those songs as well.

Patience sucks.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I've just got into RB over the last couple of days at a friends house. Never played any of the Guitar Hero games, but I've been really enjoying RB (been playing on guitar, I suck at drums). I'm gutted that there isn't a PS3 version available in the UK as I definitely would have bought one this week. I'm hoping RB2 gets a PS3 release over here, because even though there are some cracking songs on RB, the song list for RB2 looks awesome.

Probably even better off just renting RB1 and ripping the songs.

Didn't think of that, good point!

I do have a question. Supposedly the instruments for RB2 are supposed to be way better than the RB1 controllers (better guitar, quieter drums, etc). Does anyone knows if they're that much better to wait until September and paying full price versus just picking up a used set of RB1 controllers on craigslist or something?

PS Didn't see the Alice in Chains song on there too. Even better!

IMO, you are better off getting a GHIII guitar than a RB one. However, I would wait to see if they sell the RB2 drum separately. If not, I would just wait.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I still think that the Rock Band guitars are better. Either way, now's probably the worst time to get any new hardware since Rock Band 2 is close to coming out and GH:WT will feature new guitars.
If you want to play now, just grab something cheap.

The Rock Band guitars may be better, I haven't tried one, but they have one drawback. They aren't compatible with Guitar Hero whereas Guitar Hero guitars are compatible with Rock Band. Now, both sides are saying their guitars will work with each other in future and there was that mystery patch I received when I started when I played GHIII last night, but if you want a guitar that will play everything then go with a GH one.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Red Octane pretty much confirmed that the instruments will be cross compatible, to the point where they are changing the game to support the Rock Band drums which has one fewer pad.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

This info is being passed around on all the bargain sites, but if you have a Guitar Center near you, supposedly you might be able to get the Rock Band bundle (360 or PS3) for $100 and the PS2 bundle for $70.

And all versions of Guitar Hero III (I assume it's the guitar bundle) for $40.
