HMXEnosity;3118919 said:It's the opposite. It's more work to include them than exclude them.
Ultrace;3119835 said:A number of people are already going to consider RBN songs inferior because of their shortsightedness about what it represents; but when the songs themselves can't fulfill the same functions within the game, they become technically right. Something to consider.
HMXEnosity;3122229 said:Actually, If an artist released part of an album on HMX DLC and the rest on RBN, the whole album would show up together when sorting by album.
JackBNimble;3122958 said:Why are SOME of you nitpicking this to death? Obviously SOME of you don't realize what you are getting with the RBN ,and wheather some people find value in the RBN or not really is irrelevant.The simple fact is that the 360 is getting the FULL advantages of RBN and everyone else outside the 360 community is not.I would be thrilled if the PS3 was getting all the perks of the RBN.Enjoy it and be happy already.

Ultrace;3123414 said:Tone down the diatribe there. I made it clear in my post that this isn't a deal-breaker for me -- but the fact that people do make an issue of this is demonstrative of my point: that in order for RBN to achieve all it can, the songs should be functionally interchangeable with songs purchased normally through DLC. Otherwise, they will always be seen as "second-rate" from both a functional and a musical standpoint.
JackBNimble;3123925 said:Diatribe.....really?I think that's a bit of an exaggeration don't you?And I didn't point you or anyone else out with my post , but you're just proving my point.I fail to see how RBN dlc will not be functionally interchangeable with regular dlc just because it will not be in challenges or a random setlist.Just make a setlist , choose 10 songs and put 5 RBN dlc and 5 other songs of your choice and you have interchangeability right there.I don't think people will look at RBN as second rate either but quite the opposite.This gives any Joe Schmo who has any musical talent at all an opportunity to get his music into RB ,so how do you figure this will always be seen as second rate? I will say it again , the 360 is the only part of the RB community to get the RBN with all the bells and whistles while the rest of us get to watch with envy.So what if you don't get challenges or a random setlist , enjoy it and be happy!!
Ultrace;3124182 said:In your original post, and again here, you make it sound like people on the 360 have no room for any critique of the RBN, since they have it so good compared to the PS3. Nothing could be further from the truth, especially since the issue being discussed would affect PS3 users just as much. Whether diatribe or not, your dismissive statements (of things that weren't even complaints) were a little overdone.And I do think the lack of random setlist and challenge functionality of the songs will bug people. It's easy to say that people can just whip up a setlist, but many of these same people balked at ever keeping any sort of notes to indicate what their star count on a song was since the game didn't track it for them. Perhaps that's a bit more involved than the making of a setlist for these, but the same principle applies.On a personal standpoint, I like the random potential for one of these songs to pop up. They are simply not going to be purposefully picked in setlists as songs that people do know, either in our household or in the majority of others. Random setlist compatibility gives these songs a "fair shake" at getting their play. Anyway, I've said my piece -- this issue is going to bother people, some significantly, and I think it hinders RBN's integrated place in the platform.
JackBNimble;3124413 said:And yes many of us PS3ers and wii owners have felt over looked time and time again, so when we see HMX bending over backwards for you 360 guys and you're still unhappy it gets irritating. You, Ultrace, don't know how good you have it , these are minor details that you yourself are making a big deal out of.
