I wonder if they're still working on that Lips microphone patch for RB2.

Thanks for the tip about track pack codes on Ebay. I managed to get volume 2, AC/DC, and the classic rock one for $35 total. Not bad at all for about 50 new songs.

They said sometime this summer.... Well it's almost up. :) Seriously a friend mine got me the Lips pack for my Bday just for the mics. I believe RB:Beatles already has lips mic functions according to a Wired article:

Just as an FYI, MS is repacking the Lips mic for 50.00 (:lol:) and it says it works with RB. This come out 8/14, so the patch has to be here soon.

I picked up all of the songs that were released today. I've played all but the Who on drums. I would say the best this week would be "Piece of My Heart" by Janis Joplin just for the fun factor. The Gorillaz tracks were awesome but a little repetitive.

Is the new mic exactly the same as the Lips mics? I was figuring they'd add some tiny new function so the old mics don't work.

Well, it's not really up to Microsoft. From the stories published months ago, Harmonix was the one working on the patch so Lips mics would work within their game. If the patch isn't out before the individual mics are released (8/14), my guess is they won't work either. That would make for a really ugly launch.

Pinball Wizard is in Rock Band 2 already.


If he wants it so badly, I say give it to him...as long as it's the Elton John version. :D

I guess a live version can still be a "master" recording in the sense that they have access to the separated master tracks for guitar, drums, etc. I think they basically just use the term to mean "not a cover version," although it's gotten kind of redundant to specify that at this point.


You never know. We could still see covers, but I think we've moved past that era forever.

Thanks for the tip about track pack codes on Ebay. I managed to get volume 2, AC/DC, and the classic rock one for $35 total. Not bad at all for about 50 new songs.


I'm a little jealous. I got AC/DC for full price from Wal-Mart...but I did get Volume 2 and Classic Rock for $30 total from FYE, so I can't complain too much. :)

If I ever find a sale on the country one, I might have to go for that too. I'm not a huge country fan, but diversity is always nice and it does have The Gambler on it.

Now I'm curious.

I was in the same boat but I got it this week with the pre-order a game, take $10 off Best Buy promotion. It brought the track pack to $19.99 then I traded in it to Gamestop for $10.40, so my net total the 21 tracks (19 of which I didn't have) to be $9.60 which was a good enough deal for me.

From this article about The Beatles: Rock Band,

The first three albums scheduled for release are “Rubber Soul,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Abbey Road.”


How awesome.

It took almost a year, but I finally beat Visions on expert guitar... my left hand is a twitching mess. I'm now one song (Panic Attack) away from being able to take on the endless setlist.

I was watching a video over on The Feed, and I noticed that she mentions that they'll have AC/DC and ZZ Top in Lego Rock Band. I hadn't heard about those two band in LRB yet, though I find myself wondering what AC/DC songs are considered family friendly...

New Rage is always welcomed by me. I have a feeling we won't see it as DLC for a while though, seeing as we still haven't gotten the PSP tracks.

The last thing I need in Rock Band is more songs to show up on random setlists that I can't beat, but on the other hand, that track pack has a lot of good songs on it, none of which I already have.

I'm really disappointed that "In My Life" and "A Day in the Life" are not included in the main setlist...

Edit: It looks like the magazine has left out the last song after you beat the career. It has to be one of these songs. It would be fantastic for a Beatles career montage while playing "In My Life"!! I can't wait for this game!

Thank you for typing it all up, bardockkun. It's really, really appreciated. :bow:

Kind of disappointed to see 5 each for Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's, since they're apparently going to be full-album DLC anyway. I would've loved to see a few of those replaced with tracks from the White Album, but I guess beggars can't be choosers. :lol:

The Game Informer article also left out 1 song as a surprise. So there are 44 announced.

I'm thinking a day in the life as the final unnaounced song, maybe The End

if you want to read the article I've got crappy pics up in an album here
