Discuss: Rock Band: World Tour pricing and launch date

I was going to post this info a week or two ago, but apparently I would in fact have lost my job if I did.

As a side note, the release date for Rockband that I have is for March next year... but I didn't tell you.

Dreadfully sorry about that, I'll try and butter up my area manager some more and ask him if I can be an 'insider' in the future...

As for GH4, I can't wait. Hopefully I can drum up enough interest and pre-orders in the next month or so, because I want to run a competition and demo units prior to the release date.

Fuck Rock band. After the big 'fuck-off' they've given Australia, I'm inclined to return the feeling.


Guitar Hero all the way.

I'd have that opinion too if it wasn't superior in every way. I'll just get Rock Band 2 and still use all my existing DLC, and import all my tracks from the RB1 disc. GH will be a secondary purchase for me.

Please enlighten me as to what is so much better about RB? I've been harping on about GH4 to all our customers since its announcement, and I couldn't give one flying duck about RockBand. But I do reserve the right to change that opinion pending more information!

The copy I played had some Tool songs on it too.



I need to know more about this though. Oo


Schism, Vicarious and Stinkfist. I'm definite about the first two, can't remember if it was stinkfist or another one.


Having played both Rockband and World Tour, I'm all for World Tour. EA have definitely left it too late for us.

Lots of little things, that might not mean much to the average customer who only care about the Guitar Hero name and not who makes it. Harmonix have made some of the most successful and innovative rhythm games to come out.
It's a more polished product that GH3 ever was, GH4 remains to be seen (as does Rock Band 2 when it comes out in a few weeks)
The timing window is tighter to hit notes and the songs aren't made artificially difficult by adding too many random notes.
On screen it's a much cleaner interface, not as much clutter.
Character animations are pretty much spot on
DLC every week and cheaper than what Activision charge.

As much as EA have fucked over Australia I cant hold that against the actual product. With the addition in RB2 to import all the songs from the original disc, and all DLC being compatible with both versions sets it apart as a game that's not just out to screw you with every title update.

Pants wettingly awesome info there. Love Tool, although I've never picked their songs to translate well to GH.

Then again...I didn't think I'd ever see Dragonforce on there when I bought "Valley of the Damned" in '04.

"Parabola" and "Vicarious" are the confirmed Tool tracks, and also a stadium based on the art style of their video clips (I love you Adam Jones!)

/also wets pants...

I think I'm just gonna end up with both of these dammit... but maybe I should wait and get GH4 first (ie if RB actually comes out on the 29th of this month as it's currently tentatively slated to) since it's got the drumkit with more panels, but is still compatible with RB...

Yeah, if I get Rock Band, it'll be the game only...and after I've bought GH4.

Yeah exactly, but not because I have anything against EA; I don't care about all the anti-EA sentiment around, I've never been or felt ripped off by them... wait, except maybe by all the rubbish BF expansions... yeah wait a minute, EA suck.

It's not anti-EA as such...it's anti-ANY publisher that decides that Australians need to wait 12 months later than the rest of the world for a game.

O_o

What do you mean?

You can use the new guitar with the old games I believe.

YES! Very true, forgot about that.

pumpjockey: As hec relayed, you CAN use the new guitar with the old games, and the old guitars with the new game. Check my Wiki links posted on the previous page (I think) which go over instrument compatibility issues.

Just read over on Kotaku, that Metallica's "Death Magnetic" album download will be forwards compatible with GH:WT.

Awesome.
