MTV has poised itself once again to step in and conquer a brand new facet of society: the gaming industry. And what better way to do so than with the Tuesday launch of Rock Band, the very first actual video game ever to be published by MTV.
I just cancelled my order of Rock Band after about hearing so much more hardware issues than I did for GHIII.
why should I get rock band? they screwed over the ps3 owners of guitar hero. now this? fuk em. they gotta do something before I get rockband. I just bought a ton of games, no time for me to play rockband anyways
The hardware is very crappy...read the Rock Band forums..
Mics not working..
Guitars broken after just 3 hours...
And only a 60 day warranty...
Now if somebody could come out and make good standalone equipment...
And i've been playing non-stop since tuesday. Of course there are a few lemons with any periphiels. If you don't want to take the chance though, then that's your call.
I don't know what you guys are talking about my rock band plays great with guitar heros guitar. The Rock band (supposedly superior) guitar worked well the first day and now i miss tons of notes etc.
It's a shame. I can see now why it was a good price. Sub par hardware make for a sub par experience. If i didn't already own guitar hero and it's guitar I would be PISSED. Drums so far are okay along with the mic but i'm not holding my breath.
Its not sold out anywhere, its not hard to find, massive hardware breakdown. I wanted this sooo bad, but I can not ignore all the hardware problems.
These were both PS3 and Xbox 360...but it looks like people are not buying rock band...after they heard of all the hardware problems.
Lets hope they allow third parties to make drum kits and guitars...the Rock Band software is totally awesome...it just the special edition hardware is subpar...do not let anybody tell you otherwise...the hardware is a piece of crap...if we can get yamaha to make a drum kit for Rock Band and get some other third part to make a Rock Band Guitar...and some wireless mics...and make this all good quality equipment then Rock Band will take off....until then it is going to fail.
