Wait, they were still releasing these? Wow, I wonder if anyone actually bought all of them.... that's a lot of money....
TrendyGamers  +   893d ago
It's only a few thousand dollars if you got them all.

I know that I've spent over a grand on the music games genre, and even purchased songs that I thought were cool but never even ended up playing. Luckily I got out of it a few years ago.

If you average each downloadable song to be $1.99 (Some more, some less after free songs, discount packs, etc.) then yes, that's about $8000 in songs for your Rock Band library. I know people who haven't even pirated that much music....

It's been dead for a really long time. I lasted longer than other people. It's sad to see them go it really is...

I called home on Christmas and the family was playing this, but it was the first time anyone had gotten it out in a loooong time and I don't believe they've done so since then.

After I moved a year ago I put away the plastic instruments for good, but I can't believe that it's finally ending. It might be a surprise to some that it was still going after all these years, but to those that followed it on a weekly basis, it's shocking.

I'll have to pull out the mic or drums and give the game a final farewell on April 2nd. This is probably my most-played game series this gen, and I hope Harmonix creates something as fun and fresh with their new IPs.

I've bought/played all 3 Rock Band titles and loved each one.
Easily spent about $600 bucks on DLC across all 3, as well.

I hope they decide to create a new music game or a "Rock Band 4" when the next gen hits.

Harmonix said they are working on new games but they aren't going to announce anything right now.

I love Rock Band. I'm only good at guitar though. I have always wanted try the keyboard though.

Picked up Rocksmith for my PC..

Always loved the rockband games but Rocksmith is way more enjoyable.
HorrorGod  +   893d ago
I've been wanting to pick that up for my PS3.
Would love to continue learning my guitar.
But, I need to buy some new strings for it first.
