Why Rock Band Should Not Get a Reboot

Hardcore Gamer: It’s been a while since we’ve had a chance to use those Fisher-Price-esque plastic instruments, so the idea of a Rock Band game in 2015 or 2016 is a curious one. But curiosity doesn’t mean success.

The thing is it's going to happen. I'm sure we'll see them at the very least do a quick HD port to Xbox One/PS4 to keep it alive for current fans. If that doesn't happen, those who grew up playing the game in the aughts will eventually become nostalgic for it.

Rock Band came out in 2007 so believe it or not, kids who were 7 at the time will be adults in 4 years and want to relieve their childhood.

They should make it free to play and make money from dlc band packs. And make all the old stuff work on the new version.

Thats a good idea since they already release tons of dlc they would make alot more money that way too

I would love to play Rock Band again.

Saelyn1552d ago

Same here. Loved playing Rock band with friends.

Because you would have to buy Rock Band's instruments all over again. No thanks!

And because you can actually learn to play a REAL guitar with Rocksmith 2014!!!

Yeah!!! [email protected]@k Gtav too! I'm gonna learn how to rob real banks! I'm being sarcastic by the way.

On topic: I would kill for another Rock band. Like straight up MURDER someone! He'll I'd even take Guitar hero... :(

Not if Harmonix allows you to use your old controllers. Seeing how they're plugged in via USB, it's definitely possible.

If that was the case I would buy Rock Band Next (this) Gen day one, no questions asked.

I remember when the market was cluttered with these games. Every where you looked, it was nothing but Rockband, Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, or some other gimmicky game.

I kind of miss those days. These games were kind of fun.

One reason I can think of is how most modern music sucks. There's quite a few good ones but I'd bet Justin Beiber would get more exposure than competent musicians like Nightwish.
