    You kind of need to play solo to progress through to higher difficulties though, unless you have someone who is willing to play with you for hours on end.

    That Dreamcast-Xbox article was interesting. It just goes to show how arrogant Microsoft was about the Xbox, especially in regards to Japanese marketshare. If I was making a brand new console and an established console maker came to me and said "hey, let's work together and give your console an already existing userbase and a way to Trojan horse yourself into the Japanese marketplace since as a Western console it'll have issues penetrating it" I'd have jumped all over it.

    Hm, what IS Microsoft's current strategy toward Japan nowadays, anyway? For the oXbox and the first year of the 360 it was " don't bother to even spend money on localization," then for a couple of years they threw money at huge Japanese games, now... what?

    Those numbers are from Twitter? DS sales are clearly too large to be contained in 240 characters.

    The game was released last September. I think it has sold higher this month than in its first month.

    I loved that game.

    So is there supposed to be a Rock Band 3 this year? I ask becuase I'm on the Wii and due to its development dates, theres no support for large sd cards or track packs/albums in RB2. Beatles rock band recognised the large sd card so I'm hoping these things will be in place.

    I'd ask in the Rock Band thread, but the only answer I ever get is " get a 360 and spend lots of money on the games again, and the guitars and the tracks I'd have to buy again" both in thread and in real life.

    I call bullshit. Nobody here in that thread seriously pushes that advice unless the question you ask is 'Should I switch to a 360 for the Rock Band games?'

    As far as RB3 this year, that's the expectation. Though nothing has been announced officially. They stated late last year (maybe at Gamescon) that there will probably be a full band RB game and RB3. The Green Day edition has already been announced, so that leaves RB3.

    And yet it happened. The question I was asking at the time was: could one of the HMX guys tell me when the hell was RB2 coming on euro wii, and the only answer I got was "get a 360". But by all means call me a liar, thats sure helpful of you.

    Beat me on Wii U: Raybies
    Beat me on 360: Raybies666

    I remember when I had time to be good at games.
