Just seems odd that it was left out of the announcing press release - All other PRs have had pricing in it when they announce tracks.

The free pack, which is available only through the Rock Band 3 in-game Music Store, includes “Light My Fire,” “Riders on the Storm” and “Touch Me,” which incorporate five-button guitar and bass, Drums, Pro Drums and Keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable, as well as a free expansion that will add Pro Guitar and Pro Bass parts.
I'm a bit confused. While I have wifi on my Xbox and buy DLC from RB2's store, I don't have a Gold membership and therefore don't actually play online. I'm hoping it's just weird wording.

They just mean the only way you can find it is through RB3 itself. Obviously you have to be connected to the internet to see the content. You don't have to "play" anything, online or not. Just have to use the software online.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

That's what I figured, but it doesn't read too clearly. It kind of sounds like a Gold-only thing or something with that "play" in there. Anyway, I'm glad they're throwing us a few freebies.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

Found the Keyboard for $63 and stand for $21 at a site called Joorat.com with free shipping. The site looks kinda shady and their shipping is super slow (took a week to even ship the items via Fedex). But for $26 in savings I took a shot to make up for getting screwed by the PS3 Bundle. They're scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

I'm a little surprised we haven't heard final details on the RB2 export/download yet. I think it was at PAX over a month ago when they said they'd announce it all in 2-3 weeks.

I can't remember for sure, but I'd wager that the RB1 export was available by now, relatively speaking.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

I'm debating grabbing a TB:RB bundle for $75 - http://www.cowboom.com/store/product...ntentID=738022 - I still have RB1 drums, but haven't really played them for a year, and even when I was playing RB I didn't play them much partially because they missed probably 10% of the time.

I also still use the guitar from GH:WT, which I have no problems with - how is the one with TB:RB?

I'm just thinking that once I get keyboards, I won't be playing drums anyways and will be playing less guitar...

Looks like I'd have lost that bet. The export went live 9/4/08, 10 days before the retail launch of RB2. So I guess I'll start really bitching on Saturday

The beatles guitar is good, it takes a little getting used to because the neck is longer. The drums are way better (wireless) and are compatible with the cymbals for pro-mode.

FWIW...I see the 360 keyboard/game bundle is down to $125 at Amazon.

Amazon better match that price since I preordered it from them already.

I'm really curious, too. You'd think that since some folks got the game early there'd be an insert with export details on it and that'd leak, too. I'd like to know how many points I should have on hand on release date. (My hunch is one card should be plenty to handle the export, but I also plan on getting a lot of DLC that day, too.)

I'm also wondering how RB3 will handle importing tracks from other RB games. Will I need my Lego RB disc for the process, even though I already exported the tracks into RB2? Will that be treated as DLC in the RB3 import? I'm only concerned because somehow my Lego RB disc got a ring etched into it (a friend theorizes that my Xbox was probably moved while the disc was spinning; I know I've never done that, so it might've happened when I loaned my Xbox and games to my nephews). The disc is unreadable. It sucks because I still had some achievements to complete. I'd rather not buy a new copy - right away at current prices, at least - and am considering trying to resurface it somehow.

Nah, I wouldn't worry about re-exporting anything. Once it's on the hard drive, RB3 will find it. Whether or not it'll let you play is another story, I guess.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

Anything that is already exported to your HDD is fine. You won't need the discs again. LEGO shows up as its own category, but Green Day and AC/DC just show up as DLC.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

That's a relief. Thanks. While I would've waited to somehow resolve this LRB situation before importing all of my tracks into RB3, I wouldn't have been happy about it.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

My keyboard bundle for the 360 is "Out for Delivery" right now. So unless someone caught on to the broken street date and makes a last minute re-route, I will be playing RB3 all weekend.

Most of you seem to keep up with the latest news for the game, but if anyone has any questions about the game go ahead and ask. I know the first thing I will check is if the stage kit is compatible.

Mine is also scheduled for delivery today. Can't wait! Crossing my fingers it doesn't get re-routed like they have from other companies recently once Harmonix/MTV caught on.

I'll have all weekend + 3 weekdays off. I got some other stuff to do on those days, but it will definitely include some heavy RB3 playing.

Not trying to brag, but since others are getting it early, we might as well talk about it.

I have a question for when you get it. Activate no-fail mode and turn down the crowd noise. Get a song started with a guitar or keyboard and then stop playing. Does the song continue to play with the rest of the band and the guitar/keyboard part removed, or does the game add random noises (which the instrument might make) in there? In Rock Band 2, it plays the song with the part removed, but in the Beatles game it adds random noises. It's kind of like if someone is playing but missing notes. I didn't see any way to disable this.

What's nice about the way RB2 handles it is that if you have a real guitar or other instrument, you can get a nice backing track with the rest of the band that you can use to play along. I wonder if there was something in their agreement with the Beatles that prohibited that in the other game. Maybe they didn't want people dissecting their mixes or something.
