The one thing that scares me about this game, is that the drums are TOO fun, and everyone is gonna fight to play them, online and IRL. I really want a Drum Hero or something. Maybe this will wake them up and they will realize what they need to do with this.


From what I've seen, the drums are so damn ankle-exhausting that people are very willing to take a break from them every so often.

DLC pricing announced for individual songs and song packs:

Don't have full album priced up yet though. At least it's cheaper than GH and you can get them individually.

I think that is a reasonable enough drop from GH prices.

What I want to know is will you have to pay the full price for albums if you have already downloaded a song in that album. It is less likely that I would DL "Buddy Holly" when I know I will pick up Weezer's Blue Album if it comes out, for example.

Wow - this thread is much smaller than I thought it would be for a game coming out next week. I guess people just need to get it in their hands for the thread to explode.

Needs more QotSA. Wish this had gotten 3's & 7's instead of GH3. Great song.

I know it's probably been asked before, but will the wireless 360 guitar from GH3 work with this?

GH guitars will work with RB, but not vice versa.

I would actually be more willing to pay $2.00 for one RB song than $2.50 for a GH3 song, considering a RB downloadable song will have guitar, bass, drums and vocals, while the GH3 is just lead and bass guitar.

Also, I preorder this a few days ago on Newegg.com(the bundle that is) is it likely I will get the first shipment of the game? I really hope so :pray:

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

I preordered from newegg also on 11/13. Under the pre-order is still says "Not transferred". Whatever that means. I don't need it on 11/20 since my XBOX from 11/05 gave me the RROD and according to service.xbox.com is currently sitting in McAllen, TX. Froze while playing HL2 twice, then the third time, bingo RROD. I want my damn XBOX back!

Typical IGN. The review, especially the video one, seems like an 8, but it's a fucking 9.4. What the hell? I mean, if the solo career is lame outside of the drums, how can it be a 9.4?

wow. It's like we read a completely different review. I thought it was very positive and I didn't get the feeling they criticized much of anything, including solo career.
that being said, i didn't watch the video.

The video review definitely seems like he's disappointed with the game. He even said not to buy the game if you're going to play by yourself, unless you're playing drums.

There was a rock band tour bus outside of my local best buy. I got to try out the game today along with a lot of other people (and even got a free sticker).

The game definitely has a different feel to it. If you play GH3 you'll be able to pick up rock band no problem. There's also elements in there that are neat...like if one of your musicians fails their portion of the song, you can revive them by playing really really well.

The drums aren't difficult at all to play. My only complaint is that the pad is layed out completely flat. I'd like the pad for the high hat to be a little higher (just like a real drum set) but w/e.

It's a lot of fun.

Best Buy had about 30+ by the time I got there around 10:15am but everyone in line was buying it. They'll probably sell out by noon.

Looks like it will be pretty rare for the holidays.

My local Best Buy had about 5 Game-Only copies of Rock Band, so I picked it up over my lunch. I didn't see a single bundle for either the PS3 or 360, and I have a feeling that if I had waited until after lunch, I wouldn't have even gotten the game disc.

Same here, just stopped by Target during lunch, they had boxloads of these, not even opened yet. Still in the shipping cartons. Damn the box is huge.

I popped by a local game store today and the owner was unloading like 15 of them off his van. I was shocked when he said he held one for me and told him I could wait till later but damn was it tempting. I don't know how this will fit in my Christmas budget but it sure would be nice to have during parties.
