Skynyrd45;4661388 said:My guess is Rockband Pro. They will ditch the 5 button instruments, but continue to release DLC for RB3. This will be all Pro, where you can use any guitar or bass to play, sell pads to install on any drumset or use an electronic drumset like you do now. (Not for sure if they could make pads to install on top of a reg drum kit, sounds good in my head.) Also, they would expand on keys by charting both hands. This means they would only have to sell the drum pads and midi adapters as peripherals, everything else you can buy elsewhere. Pretty much Rocksmith, but with all the instruments that RB has now. I just cant see them making another 5 button game with them already saying RB is going through a fundamental change, though I really hope im wrong. As much fun as pro is, its more learning an instrument, than the fun experience of jamming with 5 colored buttons with friends.

bonethug0108;4661406 said:It's not just for people over the limit. Remember that guy that said he dislikes going through 1300 songs? It'd be perfect for people like that also.
bonethug0108;4661401 said:I'd call it a victory if they continue to support pro in rb4. Given how poor it's done and how time consuming it is, I'd guess it's only marginal profitable at best.
Skynyrd45;4661416 said:I think they will continue to support it. I think they just need to go the Rocksmith route and let people use their own guitars. Being a bass player myself, I tried the Mustang, and it just felt like another plastic instrument. I now have a squier, and it feels much better to play, but its still not a great guitar. Having only 1 plastic instrument, and one very expensive hard to find real guitar was Pro's downfall imo.
skyp1e;4661434 said:I'm pretty sure I remember someone at HMX promising that PRO will always be supported. That could just be wishful thinking on my part and a false memory, but the feeling is pretty strong that someone DID make that pledge.
meck77;4660657 said:I think you are probably right, but HMX has mislead us before on more then one occasion. here's to hoping
ThatAuthoringGroup;4661490 said:Why take the time and months needed to learn to play the real/pro guitar when you can shred the same on legacy?
mercuryshadow09;4661485 said:I don't think you understand the scope here, they've already stated there will be no more holiday music, we probably won't see anymore full albums...
skyp1e;4661487 said:Is the problem that pro guitar/bass isn't popular or that it was stalled when the starting gun went off?There were a lot of problems getting the necessary hardware into the hands of consumers that was never resolved. Also, once upon a time you could play online with people on PRO guitar/bass for free. Now you have to pay a dollar extra for that privilege, this certainly added another damper and exasperated the issue even more. Who is to say that if the PRO guitars had gotten into the clambering hands of everyone that wanted one on release that the popularity wouldn't be at least double what it turned out to be today?

mercuryshadow09;4661510 said:If the WiiU is being released this year, I'm sure developers already have their hands on dev kits!
