    Here, have a Rock Band 2 announcement. I know you love them.

    Temporary 360 exclusive again, btw.

    Cross compatible DLC is a great idea.

    Excellent idea.
    Just hope they'll release it over here at the same time as the Americans...

    Jesus Christ. I love my rhythm games as much as the next man but isn't it getting a bit crowded?

    I thought this as well when Rock Band was announced. However playing the guitar doesn't get boring. Especially because there's no learning curve with those new games. I started off with easy on GH2, moved on to Hard/Expert on GH3 and am now expert only in Rock Band. It's nice that I can use all the things I learned in the other games. Except for the drums of course. But since the games are pretty much interchangeable I don't mind if there are quite a few of them around.

    I just bought the first one! Damn right the DLC is backward compatible.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    One thing I forgot to add: If they feature Black Sabbath again in the track list I hope they use the master versions. All the cover versions sound awful.

    This is Eurogamer and the article on the main page doesn't state that it's a US release date, so that surely means that this sequel is out this September in the EU?

    I was going to buy the instrument pack on Friday. Fuck that! I'll wait for these new, better, instruments I reckon.

    Oh well... no Rock Band 1 purchase for me then. I was originally waiting for a price that I didn't feel required lube but I'm not going to pick it up with the new one just around the corner.

    I just picked up the disc, I'm using the guitar hero 3 guitar and it works fine. I WAS going to buy the drum set on it's own but I'm assuming the original gear will fall in price once the new gear is out.

    I think I'll wait.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Yeah I'm doing the same now, probably. I was all set to pick up the Band in a Box on Friday but this has changed my mind. Either I'll get the new instruments this September or I'll buy the cheapo old ones if there's not much difference.

    EDIT: Or I'll cave in and get it anyway since I'm a sucker :(

    I wonder which will be better out of this and GH World Tour. GH looks like it will have the better set of drums... though I don't know when that's supposed to be coming out anyway.

    I suspect I will. I had a weekend of Rock Band planned and everything! With real people :o

    Heh, I've been further tempted after trying out the drums on the weekend......sooo good, but I can hold out until GH:WT or the next Rock Band are released...

    Not really. More tracks = better, doesn't it. All instruments are compatable with RB (and I guess RB2) so no need to buy anything further once you got 2 guitars, a microphone and a set of drums.

    GH4 will require its own full set of instruments and thus I'll never buy it (shit note charts and slight dislike of activision aside).

    Well quite. I mean the quality of the tracklists will suffer eventually.

    Choice is good but it seems like there's a Pro Evo/Fifa thing going on now.

    When GH III came out, I couldn't understand what people were on about when they said the note charts were a bit off.

    Having spent the last few weeks playing the guitar on Rock Band, I went back to GH III last night and I finally see it. They were really weird. Not bad, just... not quite right for some reason.

    Rock Band has definitely won me over. I've written a reader review of it but it's not gone up yet, sadly.

    If Rock Band 2 uses the Rock Band equipment then the cross-compatible DLC will ALMOST make up for the stupid price of Rock Band.

    I heard somewhere (trying to find where!) they want 120 tracks on the disc...

    IIRC, the Sabbath issue is FINDING the masters, same as The Who. You have to remember how old they are! Hopefully, Led Zep and G 'n' R on disc this time, seeing as they topped the official forum's poll.

    Wait a minute - wasn't Metallica's new single supposed to debut on RB? Maybe it's on the new disc!

    I remember reading an interview with one the Harmonix guys where they said that if the song faded into another on the album, then they'd have to go with a cover version as well.

    i guess there are probably issues with gh2/3 compatibility since they are from different devs?

    Or given we've already bought the band in a box, it could be the same price as any other game.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Even if you already have one, you'll want that guitar :)

    That's probably true. However I can't stand the voice of all those cover versions. Not really noticeable if you don't know the song but with such unique voices it's really annoying.

    I really like Metallica (except St. Anger) so the more the better, if only they weren't so incredibly difficult to play :/

    Oooh, wood effect...

    Hopefully, I can just trade GH III and the LP for RB2 and that guitar. It looks... swish.
