    To be honest, I lost interest, and am officially pretty upset at Harmonix. I've been patient for awhile. I was excited to hear the beta was SUPPOSED TO BE coming out at the end of Summer. Now it's early November and we still haven't even gotten the beta yet.

    The Beta was never supposed to be coming out at the end of summer, unless you're referring to the Closed Beta, which DID start at the end of summer.

    It's not November. HMXEnosity has all but said it's not coming in November.

    I've stopped giving out release updates because it keeps changing.
    That doesn't sound too hopeful for a November release. December maybe?

    EDIT: wut? Open Beta isn't happening yet? Next year then, most likely.

    Yea the open beta is way too far behind schedule to stay on track for a November release. I'm thinking official release is still a ways off. But hopefully not too far, I'm really hoping for a release by the end of the year.

    C'mon bro, seriously? You're upset because one of the most epic things that's about to happen to/in RB is taking longer than expected?

    You probably were just having a bad day when you posted that. I want it bad too, but I don't want things to be crashing and all that at the same time too. Let them work the stuff out so it will be as smooth as possible when it's released.

    Chances are, it'll still have some minor problems when they open it up from all the people uploading, downloading stuff.

    im pretty sick of it all. ive been checking for updates on just the beta release DAILY for the past 3 months now. so ive pretty much lost interest in anticipating this thing. although it will be epic for the music-gaming world, the epic wait really is a turnoff

    The people in this thread make me sad. It's the same thing everywhere though. Harmonix is giving us something awesome and for some reason people think we deserve more. Harmonix has the absolute greatest community involvement of any developer there is, they pump out songs every week, they will be hitting 1000 songs by the end of the month more than likely, they have a podcast every other week and the Zine on the weeks in between, they've had some new games released recently AND people still complain. It's official, the forums have a bunch of spoiled brats. If you are honestly upset or mad at Harmonix for the RBN not coming sooner, you probably have some deeper issues you need to deal with.

    Why does someone always have to post these "form letter" type comments? We all now all harmonix is great, etc... The guy is just expressing a little disatisfaction

    I am DEFINATELY NOT flaming harmonix in any way and dont feel entitled to have any more than they have given us, but its been really tough sitting around in anticipation waiting for the biggest thing in gaming. and every time they push back the release date it edges ever so slightly more towards the boiling point. i love harmonix, but in all respect, it has gotten a bit tedious at best

    Dude, like you said, this is the biggest thing to ever happen to a video game...EVER. As such, it's an inordinately complicated process that needs to be tested, and tested, and retested, and then tested again. I'm not surprised at all that the beta is taking as long as it has, and even longer still.

    Just have a little patience. It will pay off in the end.

    the more time and effort that goes into testing = less chance for problems and disappointment post-release + more time for me to obsess over my contributions.

    I will admit, the thing has come a heck of a long way since late July, and it definitely wasn't settled in just yet in October

    It's looking great so far, and it looks to be there will be a good handful of songs ready at launch, with new songs being reviewed and edited almost daily. I can't wait to see the spike in additions once the beta gets public

    Ah, you burnt yourself out. I tend to do that, too. I know it's not so hard for me, since I'm actually doing stuff for RBN, but still, just promise yourself to check only once every three days. That'll make the wait a little more bearable.

    I'm okay with how long it's taking for the Rock Band Network Beta to be released. Like a few others before me have said, the longer it's developed upon, the less likely there will be as many bugs in the system. I think we can all agree that's a good thing. Also, here's to hoping to contribute soon to the Network

    Thanks OP for asking. I was afraid to put forth the question. Patience is a virtue, but alas, loss of interest is my byproduct of being patient. That and buying LRB which I have a love/hate relationship with at the moment. I've stopped paying attention to RBN and I'm sure one day, will get a very cool surprise when the I see stickied in the Announcements forum: "RBN GOES LIVE!"

    It won't. RBN's still in closed Beta. I'm no expert at these kind of things, but if closed Beta's still not finished, and there's going to be an open Beta after that, it seems like that could take more than 10 days. And that's permitting that no major issues are found during the Betas

    Alas the big problem with announcing these kind of things means people know its there and get impatient for actually getting their own hand on it.

    I can understand it taking some time to implement as its a completely new and untreaded step in the games industry... as such its no wonder weve not had an official release date announced or even an unofficial one to kind of guesswork our own dates from.

    At least we're releasing RBN before Diablo III ;)
