RB3 store and "currently unavailable" RBN songs?

OK, so I saw on the RB3 store the Amberian Dawn song Fate of the Maiden. But it's saying the song is unavailable. At first, I assumed this was because maybe this particular song hasn't been formally released yet, that it's still in testing. But then there's quite a few songs that I know have been released that are listed as unavailable. When it's unavailable, you can see it there, but you can't preview the song, download the demo, or buy it.

Anyone know what's going on with this?

    From what I can tell, its basically the same issue as the last store update. For whatever reason, the download links are broken. It's interesting to note that a few formerly broken songs are now working (Gabrielle, Bullet With a Name, Dark Horse (I think)), and a few others that used to work are now broken (Soulless, Antman, and others).

    EDIT: The songs I said were "broken" are listed as "Currently Unavailable" in the Music Store, but their download links in the "Songs" section of this site seem to still work.

    This is a known issue that has to do with adding the RBN songs to RB3. It took longer than expected, but Microsoft is plowing through them and they expected them all to be finished by Midnight tonight. So there are probably still a few that are unavailable but shortly everything should be in the store.

    Good to hear, Nord. Thanks for the update, and I look forward to purchasing a few more RBN songs later tonight. *knock on wood*

    EDIT: The download link for "Fate of the Maiden" now works. Go, Microsoft, go!!!

    I am happy. Everything is working that I wanted to buy, except "Think Bad Thoughts" and "Hold On".

    YAY! Thank you! I am going to download that now. :) Also, thanks to HMXMister_Game for explaining the situation.

    It looks like the only songs that still have broken links are "Curtain Call", "Vacation", "Think Bad Thoughts", and "Hold On". Hopefully, we'll get those tomorrow.

    One weird thing I noticed: when I download a song off of xbox.com and boot up my 360, it says that the Xbox Live content is not available and it will download automatically when it becomes available. Then, I start Rock Band 3 and it downloads perfectly fine. Strange, but no harm, no foul.

    Looking at the PS3 songs thye are all available but none of them have a preview option - I'm sure that in RB2 we were able to preview songs - is this just an Australian thing?

    Cheers

    PS3 Users in the US never had the ability to preview tracks in the Rock Band store. They had to get on their computers and use Youtube for that :)

    I guess it is taking time for all areas to gain access to the DLC. EU Wii just gained access to music store and RBN after 2 weeks of having 80% of the store unavailable.

    Just have patience. It'll come back. Go checkout the store for RB2 I am sure you can get back DLC still through there.

    RBN isn't avaliable in some countries and unfortuantly Australia is one of them. I really don't when (or if ever) the network will come to Aus so I guess we'll just have to make due with the songs we got now.

    Which is a shame 'cause I really want to play "Ultimate Showdown". :(

    It is.

    If XNA isn't available in your area then RBN isn't available in your area.

    Hi, I'm having the "Music store is Unavailable" error message on Rock Band 3. I've been in contact with Harmonix about this and currently talking to a rep there. When I first bought the game in November I believe, it was fine. I could go into the store purchase music, all great. But when the 1.02 patch was released, the problem started. I was advised that I should delete all Rock Band game data utility info and saved games, from all Rock Band versions. I did. But I keep getting the same error. This is really frustrating, as I can't purchase any songs because of how quickly I get kicked out of the store. The rep also said I live in an area where the store is available. I think it has something to do with the patch. He said it didn't seem like a widespread issue because they don't see multiple problems like this arising. I find that hard to believe since I see this problem in many blogs.

    I'm not even sure Microsoft is actually planning on expanding XNA to other countries tbh. It's been unavailable here in the Netherlands for forever as well.

    Thankfully, creating an account for my American alter ego who lives in New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel allowed me to give my money to the Network. It's probably not a solution you'd hear from Microsoft's tech support, but it's a working solution ;o

    I sorta get the impression that it's available pretty much everywhere that it's going to be, a least in it's current form. The problem in Australia is that it's illegal to sell unrated media, which is what XNA is made up of, since it's not worth paying the fees to the classification board for the often minimal sales. Wouldn't be surprised if other countries have simerlar issues.

    Of course, the annoying thing is the problem doesn't even apply to DLC. But since it applies to the rest of XNA, I can't really see Microsoft setting it up then blocking everything else.

    Read my post above - it's not going to happen.

    There is a work around if you want something badly enough and can be bothered going to all the effort though. You should be able to find the info somewhere (Like, say, a couple of posts up).

    Hello, I'm searching Killbody tuning tracks on PSN but can't find them. Do you know when it will come to PSN ?

    I'm talking about Seestrasse, Bamberg and Marker of Change.

    These are cool tunes I'd like to have.

    Thanks for your help.

    They all were released on 360 last month (the first one at the beginning of the month, the other 2 last week), so don't expect them until later this month at the earliest on PS3 (and with the lack of RBN2 songs on PS3, you're probably in for a long wait).

    Maybe this is why the Rishloo song I downloaded is not appearing in my songs. Maybe it was made unavailable just as I was downloading it :/

    Contact Microsoft that they should include Slovenia in their XNA service.
