Daniel Sussman, the project manager for Rock Band 4, has urged long-time fans of the series to export songs from older Rock Band games, confirming they’ll be available to play on the new effort from Harmonix.
Why shouldn't it be free when people spent hundreds even thousands of dollars on this series? Did they think people would come back without getting their songs back?
Its a licensing thing. I HATE that I have to play this on my XBone, I wanted to bring this over to my PS4. But I guess I need something to play on it. I don't play Halo.
Well, Guitar Hero's DLC doesn't pull forward... Tiger Wood's DLC didn't pull forward from year to year... There are a lot of instances where DLC from a previous title, even on the same generation, wasn't usable on titles released later on. ...but, you are correct, I would think that many people would not buy RB4 without DLC transfer.
DLC between games almost never carries over. Even if it didn't, I'd still be back. I'd just start over and only pick up the songs I really, really wanted and just go from there with new stuff.
Good to hear! Spent a good 200 dollars in that store!
Kind of sucks that it isn't cross platform, fortunately I haven't spent all that much on it, I just hope I can rebuy them again without having to buy one of the PS3 versions.
I should probably pick up RB Blitz and get that exported.
That's one sweet deal. I will!
Thanks a lot for keeping with this policy. On this point, it is actually better than before, when you had to pay a small fee to transfer songs from older RBs. Now just announce that old instruments still work and I'll gift this game as if I was Santa Effing Claus.
They've already said that old instruments should work.
So glad its free
