TheLovelyNoise;2730215 said:Is the $100/yr. fee for browsing/downloading tracks? Or is that fee just for people that want to get their particular music into the game?
ajistheman;2730125 said:hmxsean, harmonix will still be releasing the same amount of songs themselves right? Every song you guys make can be made just as good (theoretically, probably not always) by the labels/musicians/whoever has the masters as the tracks you guys make? Correct?
kingtonyx;2730223 said:the fee is for authors
metalfenix;2730205 said:Yeah, this project relies heavily on the XNA platform...sony should do something like this. I have no means to change to 360 right now (I have the system, but...I have all my instruments + 64 DLC songs + RB1 songs + PSN Contacts to play in PS3). Buying two copies of RB2 don't do me any good either... Ah well, congrats 360 RB'ers
HeyRiles;2730146 said:My only concern is the potential drop in aesthetic changes as well as chart qualityThe lighting and transitions during a song as well as character animation is stellar in songs released normally. But will songs released through the RBN be able to hold a candle up to the regular lighting and graphics? I'm just worried about a considerable drop in quality between the two stores
HeyRiles;2730213 said:But my concern is thisI like, say, Senses Fail quite a bit. Their record company gets their hands on these tools and develops a number of their songs. A part of the game that makes it so appealing is its aesthetics. For example, I love Assassain but it just wasn't any fun in Guitar Hero. Without this aesthetic goodness, I'm pretty worried I would buy it but not enjoy it, and end up wasting money on poor qualityTHEN, since they are already in the RBN, there isn't any need for Harmonix to take the songs and develop them themselves for inclusion into the main music store. Basically the band that I really enjoy has been locked out of getting great stuff into Rock Band and being developed by official Rock Band developers
C-Weiner;2730196 said:I love that we really trumped guitar hero
rad5brandon;2730235 said:Hey don't feel bad, Harmonix is working to bring these songs to the PS3 and Wii, maybe it can just come down to copy and pasting these songs.
kingtonyx;2730243 said:I just hope that too many bands/labels don't go over the normal $2 costI assume I'd be looking at labels to do that, I can see bands going for lower prices and more downloads
jr174200;2730114 said:Will there be a length limit on the uploaded songs?(asks the guy who is praying that Phish releases full shows on the RBN)
Der_Lex;2730174 said:I'm a PS3 user too and share your frustration, but I think it's more a matter of Sony having to get on it than HMX. Microsoft gave them the framework they needed for this, Sony needs to do the same.
General Lein979;2730259 said:I can has Songs off screaming life and fopp by soundgarden? Also how is censoring going to work because each song has to go through the ersb right? Also pricing of the songs?
SonicRocker15X;2730258 said:I'd personally pay the yearly subscription fee just to review everything before it makes it to the store myself.Though I'm hoping a cheaper version for people who just want to review everything before it gets store wise will be out at some point...
hmxsean;2730278 said:It won't be cheaper (because it is still an XNA membership), but we do hope people will do this so we can get the songs through more efficiently. And of course the upside is you get to play all the RBN songs before anyone else.
