Digital is an entirely different thing and Microsoft in particular has been crappy when it comes to sales on digital full AAA games.

Hmmm, so $42 for the game + $15 adapter for $57 or have to switch discs and save $14. Decisions, decisions.

Not really Rock Band 4 related, but still :



Hey everyone, another quick relicensing update before I head to PAX: These songs will be removed from the Music Store in The Beatles: Rock Band on May 5th.
  • The Beatles - "All You Need Is Love"
  • The Beatles - "Because"
  • The Beatles - "Her Majesty"
  • The Beatles - "The End"
  • The Beatles - "Maxwell’s Silver Hammer"
  • The Beatles - "Oh! Darling"
  • The Beatles - "You Never Give Me Your Money"
  • The Beatles - "Golden Slumbers"
  • The Beatles - "Carry That Weight"
  • The Beatles - "Polythene Pam"
  • The Beatles - "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window"
  • The Beatles - "Sun King"
  • The Beatles - "Mean Mr. Mustard"
  • The Beatles - "A Day In the Life"
  • The Beatles - "Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!"
  • The Beatles - "Fixing A Hole"
  • The Beatles - "Lovely Rita"
  • The Beatles - "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)"
  • The Beatles - "She's Leaving Home"
  • The Beatles - "When I’m Sixty Four"
  • The Beatles - "Within You Without You"
  • The Beatles - "Girl"
  • The Beatles - "In My Life"
  • The Beatles - "Michelle"
  • The Beatles - "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)"
  • The Beatles - "Nowhere Man"
  • The Beatles - "Run For Your Life"
  • The Beatles - "The Word"
  • The Beatles - "Think For Yourself"
  • The Beatles - "Wait"
  • The Beatles - "What Goes On"
  • The Beatles - "You Won’t See Me"

You know the drill -- if you own any of these songs, you can keep playing them, and this doesn't affect those songs for you.

Yeah. Beatles Rock Band DLC. It's not exportable, unfortunately.

They're all listed here :

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Se...%20rock%20band

I haven't played it in years, but maybe it's time for me to finally bite the bullet and buy Abbey Road. I have the rest already

Hoping that Beatles: RB eventually becomes backwards-compatible, but definitely NOT holding my breath. Freakin' Apple...

Re: Rock Band 4 (XB1/PS4, 2015)

BC games can't access the USB ports for the Legacy Adapter, can they? Due to the limitations of the VM sandbox, I mean.

So you'd need new X1 instruments to use a 360 game and even that could have technical issues. Maybe a small price to pay for those of us who would love to have those in game again. Ideally they'd figure out a way to get them into RB4 directly. It is, you know, a "platform" now. Even if I had to pay for them again and they were isolated in a separate "game" from all the other tracks and it required all the character models and dreamscapes, I wouldn't care. Just give me the Beatles back!

Harmonix confirmed at PAX East that online multiplayer is coming to RB4 in the Fall update.

Next week's songs:

Also, the Xbox One is getting an Ion adapter.

Re: Rock Band 4 (XB1/PS4, 2015)

From their PAX East panel, lots more updates than just the multiplayer announcement:
http://www.harmonixmusic.com/blog/on...t-panel-recap/

So our panel just ended a few minutes ago. People are still filing out of the room, and the energy in here is still electric. We talked a lot about the past, present, and future of all things Rock Band, and a ton of good discussion happened. Let’s run through the announcements all quick-like.

We spent a good amount of time talking about our 2016 roadmap for Rock Band 4, which you can see above. There’s a lot to unpack there, so let’s take it a month at a time.

In May, we’re bringing you characters from Battleborn®. Miko and Thorn will be playable for free, bringing a touch of charm and class to your band.

Thorn and Miko

Also in May, you’ll be able to use that port on the back of your drums for a second kick pedal. That’s right, double kick support is coming back to Rock Band 4.

In June, you’ll be hit with Practice Mode! Slow down songs, replay specific sections giving you trouble, have vocal pitch guides for the lead and harmonies, and more.

We’re looking at June as the end of “chapter one” of Rock Band 4. We’ve brought a lot of great content since the game launched last October, and we’re looking toward what we’re bringing you in the fall, so we’ll be putting updates on pause after June, which gives the team time to put the finishing touches on the huge features coming in the fall.

No story with chapters would rightfully end after chapter one, so continuing our promise of Rock Band 4 being the Rock Band for this console generation, in the fall we’re going to be launching our first expansion pack. This is going to have some heavy-hitting features in it that will get some light shined (shone?) on them at E3. There are brand-new, never-before-seen features, and they add some really interesting ways to play the game.

Alongside the expansion pack, we’re also going to be bringing some enhancements to the music library. While details are still a little sparse here, we know we want to bring you better filtering options, and the ability to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to songs in your library. More to come on this soon as well.

Around the same time all of this drops, we’re going to have an adapter available from PDP to let Xbox One users play Rock Band 4 using their Xbox 360 ION Drum Rocker or E-Kit adapter. Not surprisingly, you’ll hear more about this at E3.

Then, the heavy-hitter. Just like we brought a lot of free post-launch content to Rock Band 4, the expansion pack is going to keep updates coming into 2017. The big update that we’re talking about now comes around the holidays and brings synchronous online multiplayer. We’re still early in the design phases here, but the idea behind here is to give you Quickplay-esque gameplay, while addressing some concerns around DLC library mismatches and giving everyone chances to pick songs.

I've got tons of Tom Petty DLC, but would certainly be up for more (especially studio tracks)

Looks like you're getting your wish: studio tracks of Learning to Fly and Don't Do Me Like That. Just two songs this week, unconventionally.

Big fan of Tom Petty too, very happy to get clean studio tracks finally. Also bummed that it's only two, but it's a start. Would have been nice to put Renegade or something in there and give us a discount.

Breakfast at Tiffany's has been a guilty pleasure car song for 20 years now. I'm in.

Hopefully these 2-track weeks will stop. We need to get back to the bundles.

Re: Rock Band 4 (XB1/PS4, 2015)

If you're on Xbone and you have entitlement issues with AC/DC, RB2 20 bonus songs or some DLC bundles you should have some new songs to download.

I actually got my AC/DC songs earlier but I was able to get 19/20 of the RB2 bonuses (Authority Zero's No Regrets has never been on the marketplace and never been available to anyone as far as I know) plus the RB3 Doors preorder 3-pack and the GameStop RB3 preorder pack with Talking Heads, New Order and Deftones. I had to install the preorder packs in the in-game store but the 19 RB2 tracks were in my "ready to install" section.

That leaves 3 glitched songs for me (viva la Gloria/Little Girl from Green Day, Kung Fu Fighting from LEGO and now No Regrets) plus the RB1 export songs that are temporarily exclusive to the RB4 30-song preorder pack and the various delisted songs.
