elfreako;2730156 said:What a fantastic idea. Eventually you could even see a few individuals getting so good at charting that they can do consulting for a bunch of bands. I'd imagine you will be looking for song QA testers around here... I'd love to participate, but of course I'm on PS3 so I guess I'm screwed.I might even end up helping my brother's band chart a few songs, which I'll never get to play. because, yeah, PS3.Seriously guys, get on it. The excitement around this announcement just emphases the frustration of not being able to take advantage of it.

Zephiel;2730184 said:Does the artist get some of their song's profits?
kingtonyx;2730176 said:Also I'd be more than willing to help out with any sort of testing. I have nothing to do during the day

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.

HMXEnosity;2730135 said:Billboard states in their article that indie label, Sub Pop is already on board.
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
