PS3: RB3 versions or new songs?

Given there are several RB3 versions of RBN songs that have been released, and a few of them are versions of songs on the PSN, it seems a valid question to ask, and likely to effect more people than the 2X bass pedal issue.

What's your preference?

    I'd really want to see RB3 version. Asking Alexandria is coming next week, and the only thing that was keeping me from buying the RBN1 version was the fact that pro drums weren't charted. Can't wait to play keys as well.

    There are a lot of interesting RB3 version already out on RBN2.0, and I want them all. As well as the versions that are currently in the pipeline.

    Heck, I'd buy almost everything in RB3 version, not having pro drums suck hard. I'm not getting even rats because of that. The drum chart is sick.

    I'm a RB3 version fan. Pro drums on a few songs would help, but keys and harmonies are big draws for folks at my parties, and it always feels weird playing songs (even HMX released DLC) that don't have them and should now.

    Well, at present, RB3 Versions don't have that big of a presence in RBN - there's only four of them (Africa, Buried Cold, Midnight Eyes, and The Final Episode), compared to over SIXTY 2x Bass versions.

    I suppose that stands to reason, though - it takes considerably more effort to make an RB3 version than it does to double your bass pedal on various places of a single chart.

    I don't believe the PS3 ever got the old versions of Buried Cold or Midnight Eyes, and The Final Episode is already coming over. So until more PS3 versions appear, the question being asked is really, "Would you like the RB3 Version of Africa?" Because it's the only one that would be receiving a re-release upgrade if it appeared.

    Buried Cold is the only Rose of Jericho song we got, sadly.

    Buried Cold did make it over.

    I sit corrected. :) (Went by rbnreleases.com as a quick reference, and it didn't have the PS3 option checked off.)

    It came over at the very end of the first run.

    If it's just a few songs, then I don't see a problem with re-releasing them. There will likely be some rage from forum-goers just as there is when official DLC is re-released, but that usually subsides rather quickly.

    We just miss two RB3 Versions, Africa and Buried Cold. I'd buy both of them as I've skipped the original versions knowing that they didn't have pro drums available. I'd buy them!

    The only problem I have with getting RB3 versions is that we so few RBN songs as it is. If we could get PSN to look the other way on these songs I have no problem with it.

    I would happily buy Africa (RB3 Version) if it was made available to us.

    At the moment, there aren't that many of them to begin with (RB3 versions that we got the RBN1 version), so it sounds like it's not a huge impact on songs we get.

    Now, not all RB3 versions of songs are of songs that are already on PS3 - there are some in playtesting (the 3 original Free Spirit tracks) that never made it to PS3 (Far Away From Heaven not-withstanding).

    In this case, these are songs that missed the opportunity to be ported over before the window closed, but now have a chance to be ported over (and with upgrades).

    With this in mind, I'm assuming you are only talking about RB3 versions of songs already on PS3.
