Just wondered if you guys could shed some light on my problem i downloaded a few RBN songs from the PSN store and entered the game to play them but cant find them. What games are the RBN songs compatible with as im none the wiser? I have RB, L:RB, GD:RB. Do i have to buy RB2 to be able to play these songs?

    Also the RB2 disc songs will more-than-likely export into RB3 when it comes out, which will also support RBN songs.

    All RBN songs are set by default to "Supervision Recommended" since Harmonix doesn't want to have to go through all 500 songs determining which to label as "Family Friendly" before passing them through to the marketplace. Makes things go smoother and quicker.

    Considering they go into quarantine, they could have without too much delay. I would suspect that for songs that weren't available at the time of LRB's release, that the data inside the song is what determines whether or not it's 'family friendly'. You'd know better than I would if you can tag songs in such a way. But I doubt it.

    However, RBN tracks are stored (at least on 360) in the RB2 directory. LRB has not been updated to look for new tracks in that directory (neither has RB1) so, for all intents and purposes, those songs simply don't exists.

    Saying that all RBN tracks have supervision required is just a convenient label.

    It would be nice to list RBN tracks without a vocals part as family friendly, but ah well, Harmonix even has a couple of SR instrumentals
