    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    So do you know what the one-cymbal, two-cymbal, three-cymbal add-ons are each supposed to offer?

    I imagine the idea is that you can use those in lieu of hitting the pads. As far as I know, Guitar Hero: World Tour won't recognize them.

    I'm happy. This is like their bonus song section I guess.

    Any idea when they're supposed to be available?

    Ah, Nov 4, along with the Presidents of the USA pack... and technically, the AC/DC pack.
    Still no word on whether or not Canada is stuck with Walmart when it comes to the AC/DC thing though. Yuck.
