PLAYING WITH PA FOLKS
If you're on Xbox LIVE, go ahead and add Rock Band PA as a friend. Then look at that gamertag's friends list and send out messages to people to coordinate a band or you can post in this thread. If you want to find people with DLC, it helps to know what you have and you can go to DLC Quickplay and make your own list (and tag it in your sig like some people). It is generally accepted to play in your difficulty range (i.e. not constantly failing out) and it's cool if you have a headset to be able to talk to people.

The Beatles Rock Band
09/09/09
Xbox 360, PS3, and the Wii
The_Beatles_Rock_Band_box_art.jpg

WHAT'S NEW?
  • Compatibility - Due to restrictions by Apple, on-disc and DLC tracks for the Beatles Rock Band will not be compatible with any other Rock Band game.
  • Harmonies - Two additional people can sing back up vocals. All microphones are tied to one controller allowing for any combination of singers, potentially up to 6 people (3 singers, 3 instruments) can play because of this.
  • Overdrive/Beatlemania! - Due to restrictions by Apple, it seems the freestyle drum fill to activate Overdrive/Beatlemania! on drums no longer exists. Instead, you're given a glowing green gem to hit to activate it minus the drum fill.
  • Effects - Guitar switch effects are disabled in-game. Whammy doesn't always produce a modified noise. Most of this has to do with the lack of split tracks. Opening/Closing drum fills are silenced as well.
  • Unlockable media - Never before seen videos, photos, and other neat goodies relating to the Fab Four.
  • Dreamscapes - While the game follows the Beatles' career at the start, they end up being cooped up in Abbey Road Studios in the later half. In order to present better visuals than just strumming in the studio, Harmonix has gone ahead and created these dreamscapes - imagined cinematics of the song that plays out while you play.
  • Downloadable Albums - Abbey Road has been announced to be the first full album with more full albums to come after the game's release. See below for release dates and albums.
  • New Instruments - Based on the Beatles' own gear:
    • John Lennon’s Rickenbacker 325 guitar
    • Sir Paul McCartney’s trademark Höfner bass
    • George Harrison’s Gretsch Duo Jet guitar
    • Ringo Starr’s drums with classic black oyster pearl finish and Ludwig-branded Beatles kick drum head

  • Downloadable content - There was mention of downloadable content but to what extent and in what form has yet to be revealed.
  • No Online multiplayer - Console versions have no online multiplayer. The DS version offers local, cart required multiplayer.

Rock Band Network
Early 2010
Xbox 360 - All features
PS3 & Wii - Limited DLC from RBN after it goes on LIVE, PS3 might get the full RBN later on

Rock-band-network-logo.jpg

WHAT'S THIS?
Wikipedia wrote:
The Rock Band Network is a system designed by Harmonix Music Systems with the help of Microsoft to allow musical artists and record labels to make their music available as playable tracks for the Rock Band series of rhythm video games. The Network was designed to allow more music to be incorporated into Rock Band than Harmonix themselves could produce, and it is seen as a way to further expand the games' music catalog into a wide variety of genres. The Network is set to start beta testing in September 2009, with it becoming publicly available to all Xbox 360 players in November; Harmonix hopes to be able to also bring these songs to the PlayStation 3 and Wii consoles.

The Rock Band Network is based on the XNA Creators Club model and uses peer review to check songs for playability, copyright violations, and profanity. Harmonix has developed a suite of software tools, including a modified version of REAPER, a digital audio sound tool, and Magma, a metadata packaging tool, for use by artists and labels. In addition, Harmonix has helped to spawn the creation of several third-party companies, based on the previous hacking environment for the creation of custom songs, that will author an artist's song into a Rock Band track. Artists retain full control on their songs, and receive 30% of the sales from the Network. Several artists and labels have already committed to expanding the distribution of their music through the network.

WHAT BANDS ARE DOING THIS?
This obviously gives smaller, indie bands a venue for some cash. There is a list up on the Rock Band forums of bands and labels who may be putting songs up on the Rock Band Network. Expect to see more from Harmonix bands like the Main Drag and Speck, nerd favorite Johnathan Coulton, and even Penny-Arcade's own band (well, mostly Tycho), the Sex Generals.

I HAVE A BAND!
Great! Have a look at the process and tool you will need over on the RBN page.

    And a reasonable sounding theory about what may or may not make the cut.
    It's interesting that they took the censoring into consideration, I'll use the Foo Fighters as an example because I know their songs off hand. All of The Colour and the Shape is included except for Monkey Wrench and My Poor Brain, because even though they're censored, the swearing is extremely obvious from the context. I was wondering about exactly this the other day.

    I don't think this is the final list either.

    Disc export will rely on the technology pioneered by Harmonix to export tracks from the original Rock Band disc to the music library of Rock Band 2. Owners of LEGO Rock Band on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be able to enter a unique code from an insert in their game manual into a dedicated website. The website will provide instructions allowing owners to unlock the export functionality of LEGO Rock Band. At that point, players will be able to export tracks from LEGO Rock Band to their hard drives for play in all game modes of the Rock Band Music Platform for a nominal export fee of $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points). An internet connection is required to perform this disc export.

    So, howza Wolfmother charts looking?

    Take your pick. Though it doesn't look like corporalgregg has posted anything yet, so full band charts are probably going to be slow in coming this week.

    Corp Gregg didn't get any DLC this week.

    Can't say I blame him...

    Then again, last week was expensive, too.

    Hey, if one British 4-piece band with 2 dead members can get a full band game, so can another.

    I'd buy Rock Band: The Who so damn hard.

    It could have one of the greatest achievements in rhythm/video game history, finish a set on expert drums after ingesting a combonation of horse tranquilizers and brandy.

    I'd say releasing any kind of Rock Band: Already Got DLC Available is a bit of overkill. I mean, I like The Who, but the Who stuff we have already has pretty much scratched my itch for the band. That would limit sales to the true die-hards, who aren't really numerous enough to support a full-blown band game.

    I'd say they should stick to bands that don't have any songs available already. Which pretty much limits us to Rock Band: U2. Or possibly Rock Band: "Weird Al" Yankovic. I'd buy the hell out of that one.

    I still think Queen has a ton of music they could release (and I would damned well buy), but I do wonder if any/many other bands really have the history and "story" to tell that the Beatles did. If they could keep away from being utterly retarded in an "I Love The" kind of way, doing periods of time could work really well in the same way though.

    What doesn't help is the likelilhood of people confusing his 'amazing' comment. I suspect he's talking about how rhythm games can get new people interested in old music.

    And no, I don't doubt that a 65 year old man with no direct connection to making music games might not have the best grasp on the difference between a full game and a track pack.

    I wouldn't mind seeing more band-specific track pakcs a la AC/DC, but I don't think any other bands deserve the full-game treatment.

    Except for BNL because they're my favorite and I want more than one track pack's worth of songs. We need more than just the Hannukah song, Harmonix!

    Am I correct in assuming this means that only one export per LEGO RB copy will be allowed?

    Specifically unconfirmed. But highly likely this will be the case.

    It appears they're combining the RB1 export with the RB2 Free 20/Track Pack DLC idea.

    Yup, they learned pretty quick after the RB1 fiasco and every game since has included a unique code to ensure only one export per disc.

    I don't have the RB1 tracks yet. I played those songs to death and haven't had an itch to play them in RB2 yet. My wife wants them though so I'll probably spend the 400 points this weekend.

    To me, the most amazing thing about it is that it was still so cheap in spite of the fact that they knew it wouldn't generate many, if any, extra sales. A flat five dollar fee for 50+ songs is a damned bargain given just how easy it is to get.

    What I'd like to know is if there is any export in the works for RB2. If they truly think of RB as a "platform" then we should have that option to export and then play those songs in the other games. Everyone seems to think this will happen when RB3 comes out but I don't see why that thinking wouldnt apply to Lego:RB. at least for the "family friendly" songs.

    Might happen sooner if Page and Plant had some accidents. And they, y'know, died. In those accidents.

    Or maybe LRB isn't important enough to add a feature they're probably not ready to introduce just to add up to 84 songs outside of 600+ already available DLC to filter through.

    Considering we know LRB exports, it's not unreasonable to expect that RB2 will export eventually in time for RB3. So, sometime next year there will be an additional selection of tracks available for use in LRB when they implement the idea in time for their 'main' game instead of a side project.

    I don't think it was a fiasco.. it's to protect Lego Rock Band sales.

    RB1 was a title update. You paid 5$ for 55 songs plus a key for Rock Band 2 to authorize using the songs (if you delete the transfer key, RB2 will not show RB1 songs)

    RB2 will eventually title update and allow a transfer. Not now though, because they're still selling it as the main Rock Band title.

    Lego Rock Band comes with a free code to unlock transfer mode, and then you pay 10$ for the songs + the key that lets RB2 authorize playing them. This is to prevent a bunch of used copies of Lego Rock Band being cycled through, endlessly generating money for Gamestop and not for Harmonix/MTV/EA. I imagine that eventually, Lego RB will title update and allow everyone to pay 10$ to transfer it sometime next year.

    Yes. LRB is exportable for an extra $10. It will apparently function in the same way the RB1 export did.


    Also, for grins, from the last thread.

    any source on this? :)

    Amazingly, yes...

    Oh so I'm guessing you can't just rent the game and pay the license fee, get the songs, return the game and then go your merry way?
