    Don't know if anyone here even cares, but as of this post, the Rock Band 2 complete bundle for 360 and PS3 is available for $70 for another five hours on Amazon.

    I'm surprised that they didn't hold back "Smells Like Teen Spirit" for a main game track. It would make a great selling point.

    Other than Rock Band Beatles, they seem to be dedicated to the whole "platform" concept.

    Actually, seeing as the song is in Guitar Hero 5, it makes perfect sense to release it now. It's removing a selling point from their competition.

    It now seems that us European players are a week behind with the DLC...
    Last week we didn't get RB DLC, this week we get that DLC(AFI/Bangels) only...
    It's a bit annoying, but hopefully HMX and Sony will sort it out...

    Any Americans around, there's a deal at Old Navy tomorrow to get a free copy of Lego Rock Band. Of course, you'll have to line up and whatnot, but still. :lol:

    While it can lead to some hilarity, I think the next game really needs to be able to change the vocalist accordingly in the middle of a set. Seeing a male/female vocalist singing a female/male vocal part is funny, but wrong.

    Bought Lego Rock Band on Friday...
    About half of my RB2 DLC is available to me in it...
    so about 130 of 260 songs...
    Fun game, though there seem to be some problems with the export codes...

    I rented LEGO Rock Band and Beatles Rock Band over the long weekend. LEGO Rock Band is much closer to the Rock Band 2 style that I love. Both games are entirely too easy on Medium, and there are few songs that are just pure fun to play. I love the LEGO humor and game structure, but the song list just isn't robust enough for me to buy the game.

    Worst song in RB history contender: We Will Rock You

    Sure, people besides the vocalist have parts before the ending solo, but it is the most mind-numbingly boring part imaginable.

    EA announced 1,500 layoffs including 39 for Harmonix. No games canceled or delayed as a result.
