Nine Things You Didn't Know About Rock Band

Not too long ago MTV's Tracey John visited Harmonix, the company that's developing Rock Band (published by MTV Games).

During the interviews, Tracey found out some random, little-known facts about the company and the game, like:

- The inspiration for the in-depth Band World Tour mode
- How they fixed the issue of online lag using patented technology
- How Harmonix works with corporate behemoths like MTV and EA
- Harmonix's real "Rock Band" rehearsal space
- Future peripherals (possibly keyboards and… a cowbell?)

my roommate just played the demo at walmart and he could not stop telling me how bad the guitar controller is and how loud and crappy the drums are. I was so looking foward to this game. I am going to get over there to try it, but anyone else back him up?

Well

Hell with it, was your roommate hitting the bong ?
Drums kick ass, I've played the drums for about 2 hours or so and I loved them, the guitar controller is my new favorite.
There are broken ones though because "To make the deadline we had to use some pre-production gear which is not as durable as the final equipment."

The stuff is top notch though

Its from MTV. MTV = sh!t music

Harmonix dev'd it despite the MTV name. So I went with that over Guitar Hero 3 since well they made the first 2. While I abhor everything that is MTV, Harmonix makes up for it from GHI and II as well as Frequency and Amplitude.
