PSP World: Rock Band: Unplugged Preview

Harmonix have solved this problem by tweaking the gameplay to rely entirely on the four face buttons.

no multiplayer is a big bummer, but the more amplitude esque game play is exciting enough for me!

I am excited for this. I did not have any desire to play the DS Guitar Hero. That add-on just seemed annoying and awkward. If this plays anything like DJ Max Fever it should be fun.

To say Harmonix has "solved" the problem seems like giving them a little too much credit. Using the face buttons was the natural worst case scenario solution. I don't see how rock band would be any fun when it's just tapping four buttons in a diamond layout.

It's more like resorted to using the face buttons.

Psh it's just fine if you ever played Frequency or Amplitude. I like RB but the truth is this... Freq Amp > RB+GH =P
