Rock Band 2 timed exclusive for xbox360

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Rock Band 2 timed exclusive for xbox360

^^I liked your post until that last sentence. Then it was just silly. If they had online bands to RB2 I will get it.

Well I just read an interview on IGN about RB2 and the guy all but confirmed online bands. He also made several statements that made me eagerly await this title. Features that help to transition from expert to real instruments??? These guys seem to know rythm games.

Does anyone think that Rock Band rushing to launch in September, rather than November per usual screams of what Microsoft did with the XBOX 360 launching a year early?

We all know how that turned out... Hope RockBand doesn't suffer the same fate.

 

?????????????  Oh I get it. You mean sell 6+ more million copies than it then its competition. :)




 

Rock Band has sold alot more on the Xbox 360 than PS3 anyway.

I don't know why but it just feels like an 360 game to me but that's probably becuase in the UK it's advertised as a 360 game and it's timed exclusive.

The Wii version shows me they are more concerned with getting to the market than actually producing quality.

 

How do you arrive at that conclusion?  The Wii version is a direct PS2 port (with instruments painted white and zero extra features) released half a year later.  If they wanted to just rush it to the market they would have released at the same time as at least the PS2 version.

I agree that quality wasn't enforced while porting it over since they didn't bother including online play which GH3 had on the Wii months ago but it wasn't exactly out to the market fast.

Hopefully for Wii-only owners Harmonix will follow Vicarious Vision's lead and allow DLC in future RB games on the Wii since apparently GH:WT on the Wii will have DLC.

I arrive at that conclusion, because the Wii is getting RB1 three months before RB2 is supposed to come out.  Do you really think your going to get a full fledged RB2 for the Wii?  I mean 6 months to perfect a PS2 port, and even if the Wii version doesn't come out until November, 5 months to include DLC, updated graphics, online play, etc?  Just because they didn't release the Wii version in January doesn't mean it wasn't a rush job.  Okami was a rush job despite it being released 1.5 years late. 

We all know they were waiting to supply PS2, PS3, Xbox360 guitars and produce enough Wii guitars before releasing.  The game was probably done in February but they didn't have any accesories to give Wii owners.
