A New Pyro Fool;3245778 said:Activision, IMO, has lost out more on profit because they must've spent quite a lot of money to advertise Band Hero on all major network stations while Lego: Rock Band received virtually no advertisements at all.

T-Hybrid;3246422 said:Is there anything actually "new" about the drums aside from "The cymbals are round instead of triangles?"
Bullseye;3246467 said:). And LRB is suffering from the September release of TB:RB, which is clearly the game of choice for the casual RB crowd. .
Bullseye;3246467 said:Both LRB and BH are both pretty much glorified track packs...

Quaszar;3246748 said:Not here to bash the Beatles but I find it very hard to believe that The Beatles were RB's 1st choice for a stand alone music game. I know of only 1 person (friend of a friend) that bought TBRB and I am told he hardly plays it now
XacharyCross;3248224 said:Yeah, Lego RB wasn't really advertised a lot, and if you tell someone it exists, they usually get the "HuH?" response that went with most of the early rumors on here.Add in a low track count (though I'd say that's more that RB2 and the newer GH's have kind of overblown that thing, remember the first GH had what, 15 songs of which 14 were covers, or so) and it's gonna be more of an afterthought, especially with all the video game competition this time of year and even moreso, the general economic state and christmas pressure on folks budgets.
