Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I think it was confirmed that in Europe it's not tied to one company.
I still have no idea if it's Walmart only in Canada. Such a pain in the ass if it is.

^Walmart own Asda so if it's going to be tied to one company, if we get it at all, it'll be them.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Well, the thing is that AC/DC is exclusive to Walmart in the US... that's probably partly how this deal came to fruition. Is that the case in Europe?

^As I said, we don't know that we'll even be getting this extra game. We don't even have a date for Rock Band 2 yet.

Oh, I see, I wasn't aware of that.

I can't see the CD version of Live at Donington anywhere but a DVD of the concert is available from the usual places.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

That's the advantage of being owned by a media company... you get a whole show built around your game.

The new AC/DC album is a Walmart exclusive, and it was apparently the band's decision for the Rock Band pack to be the same way.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yep, but I don't know if that's the case in Europe... or even in Canada.

I find it odd though. I hesitate to buy The Who pack but for some reason I really want the AC/DC songs.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

So there's a cymbal pack coming for the Rock Band 2 drums that allow you to expand the drum set. But the only ones I can find are from MadCatz. Is there no Harmonix first-party cymbal pack?

I believe that is the first-party pack as they are licensed Harmonix products.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, I don't think they're doing their own cymbals.
