Will PS3 users get the RBN this Thursday?

I heard the PS3 would get the RBN a month after the 360. Also, sorry if this has been asked before, I'm new.

    No, they are never going to get the RBN, but it's been said that some songs from it will be available on PS3.

    Geez guys, be a little nicer to the guy, he is new.

    Anyway, the chances of PS3 getting the full RBN at the moment are slim to none. However, Harmonix is working on porting some of the RBN tracks over to PS3 and Wii. The deal is that the tracks will have at least 30 days exclusivity on the 360 before they can be ported to the other consoles.

    Does this mean that a song that will appear on other consoles will appear exactly 30 days after its 360 release? No.
    Does this mean that a song that doesn't get ported over after 30 days will never appear on the other consoles? No.

    The 30 day exclusivity is a general guideline, not a law, so if something that you want doesn't appear after 30 days don't freak out about it too much, it could be coming soon. That being said, there's no official release date for the first batch of RBN songs on the PS3 or Wii yet, but keep on the lookout for news.

    Your wording here is kind of poor. The 30 day exclusivity is indeed law (as far as we are concerned). The rest of your statement is reasonable.

    OK, serious answer: Since nothing was announce friday, it seems very unlikely that we'll see any RBN songs this week. Other than that, we have no idea when the RBN selections will come, other than it must be at least thirty days from when they showed up on the 360.

    If you have to ask here, nobody knows. You'll hear about it in the Announcements forum when they're ready to announce something.

    dont bring that into this thread please :)

    cracking a joke(like i do) is one thing, but the ps3 people really do deserve the rbn content for download too

    itl only help us all as it will bring more revenue to the authoring companies, abd bands/labels(thus making them want to bring us more and perhaps even making them put more manpower into getting them in and out) and give hmx more funds in order to bring us further developments also :)

    I wonder if Harmonix has a landfill chalk full of dead carcass.

    No, probably two...

    How about Harmonix takes someone's first born child everytime someone asks if we get RBN on PS3/Wii? Maybe THEN people will stop ;)

    I don't want RBN (though it would be nice to have), I want to throw my money at HMX and the authoring companies to buy many of the amazing songs that are available through RBN. I can vote with my wallet. It is unlikely there will be any DLC released between now and the time RBN tracks finally make PSN that I can't live without; therefore, I shall live without new DLC until such time as I have former RBN tracks available to me (unless, of course, Mrs. Chase tells me otherwise).

    Can't you XBOX people understand our anxiousness here? We want a taste of the RBN...it's clear that no one knows exactly when we PS3 users will see any RBN tracks. Thursday the 8th of April would be the first chance we get if you go by the 30 day statement in the original RBN announcement. Just where should we go to ponder when PS3 users will get RBN tracks? A public Rock Band forum in the RBN folder? Oh wait...

    I'm sure everyone does! It's understandable. It's just that it's been made clear that there's not going to be any answer forthcoming unless and until the songs are well on the way to the PS3. There's not much else to do but shrug.

    EXCEPT: (As I've wildly guessed elsewhere,) I'd be very surprised if anything but the very best sellers got ported over. So if your fave song isn't doing well on the XBOX, talk it up and get your xbox-having friends to buy it, because if a song doesn't sell on the one platform, I can't imagine why HMX, Sony or anybody would invest the time and money into putting it on the PS3.

    Translation: Not much that I want will get ported over. The 360 owners seem to buy the biggest names and the novelty songs, and precious little else.

    *sigh*

    Then again, as Mencken said, nobody ever went broke by underestimating the intelligence of the American public...

    No that's not a good spot for the discussion. You want high-larious jokes about 2014 and dead children there. Clearly there is nowhere that we should discuss it.

    And why would it be any different from the rest of the music world? :rolleyes:

    But then again, what do I know? Nobody's telling ME any secrets. I'm just going by my jaded, gin-sodden gut - and pointing out that while agonizing about the future won't help anyone, convincing a few more 360 owners to try something other than "the biggest names and the novelty songs" might actually help in the long run.

    I've bought about 70 songs from RBN.

    A good chunk of those weren't the biggest names.

    But I'm probably the exception instead of the rule.

    I've bought around 50 tracks from RBN and only around 15 were "big name". Achemilla - Bleeder
    Children of Nova - The Complexity of Light
    World Minus One - Still Alive

    are just a few of the bands I had never heard of before RBN. I have already bought Children of Nova's EP and would/will gladly purchase music from many of the artists I've heard off of RBN.

    I would hope everyone (PS3/Wii owners) eventually gets the chance to hear some of the lesser known bands on here. Many of them better than the big names.

    :) I think that almost by definition, anyone posting here on the boards is "an exception instead of the rule." It's the people here who are paying the most attention to RBN overall, so it's no surprise you'll have listened and purchased more broadly than the average user. The real challenge is reaching the rest of the gamers who play, and buy the occasional additional DLC, but don't really spend much time researching it. *OOh, LADY GAGA* kaching.
