    ROCK BAND 4.

    There can be no other.

    My selfish brain refuses to accept anything less :P

    Hope they won't call it Rock Band 4S.

    This.

    There's no way HMx would show something REALLY big like RB4 to the public for the first time at PAX East. That's an E3-caliber announcement, and it's not like HMX to announce an RB game (especially one of the main games like RB4 would be) outside of E3.

    I would guess that the "SECRETS" are either DLC or a hint at RB4, but I'd be shocked if something as big as RB4 would be announced at PAX. It seems to me like better place to announce something like an arcade game.

    They won't show it but they could announce it.

    There was also something a little while back that Harmonix was developing an XBLA/PSN download release
    This is true, which made me start thinking rb4/rbsomething may not be a retail release.

    @dog, great point. This is just an announcement. We don't know if they are showing off whatever game it is at all(as far as a demo; sounds like they will show off it's creation).

    My heart says RB but from reading through all the panels involving HMX it suggested to me something rythm/dance/excersise related. That coupled with the fact that we already know HMX has a forthcoming XBLA/PSN title reinforces this. I also agree that a new RB title would be an E3 announcement, as would anything DC. I wouldn't rule out a new music creation/collaberation software for RB, though. It would make sense to release something like that (if it were to ever happen) through XBLA or PSN. I think SECRETS is going to be that news RB related will be coming soon. I want to be wrong though. I'm not a patient guy. I want RB 4 tomorrow.

    Didn't they mention a "fundamental reimagining" a while back?

    I would guess these things are related...

    Isn't the WiiU supposed to come out around the end of this year? I'm pretty sure even if it's announced at PAX, Rock Band 4 may take until at least next year to release.

    Wouldn't it be someone else that would be doing the port to the Nintendo system? Could they be working on it kind of in tandem?

    You do know that the Wii U will be out this fall and if this is Rock Band 4 the most likely release date would be Oct/November....sooooo?

    Right. I guess it would all come down to what they are announcing. We know they are working on different things(rb, dc, and other stuff, at least one of which is cell phone game related).

    One interpretation could be the reimagining of rb could be as a downloadable game.

    Edit:
    And what tag said about wiiU and rb. Even if they release it in aug or sept, they will still likely hold and release it on the wiiU instead of the wii.

    And since whan do games HAVE to come out for all three consoles at the same time. The first RB was out for months on the Xbox and PS3 before the Wii. And I think RB2 was out for a month on the Xbox before coming to the PS3 and Wii.

    A good example is the Michael Jackson Experience on wii and kinect. I believe it released on wii at around the same time kinect was launched, but it didn't release on kinect until a few months later.

    That would be almost an exact scenario of what would happen with a hypothetical rb4 this fall.

    Edit:
    Kinect was launched on nov 4, 2010. MJ was released on the wii on nov 23, 2010 on the wii and on april 12, 2011 on the kinect.

    That was a 5 month gap.

    Just got a tweet from @rockband to pay close attention to the hmx panel at pax. No tweet from @hmx about it.

    Hmmm....

    Btw, did I mention it was followed by a winky face?

    Please no Rock Band 4 for current hardware consoles. I hate the 3000 song limit cap. We need more RAM!

    It sucks and yes I'm one of the few that's well over it, but I don't think it'd be wise to wait 2 more years to release a new rock band.

    They aren't going to hold off on it for those very few players that have "maxed out". And who knows, maybe they have a better way to handle it(instead of having to delete songs)?

    The description for the panel says the title will be shown on public display for the first time at the HMX booth. That seems like more than just an announcement to me. That seems like something substantial; a demo or trailer/video at the least.

    "It's not just Doom and Halo maps anymore. The Rock Band Network, and the many other user-generated content platforms out there, have built up a whole world of dedicated gamers producing and selling high-quality content right inside games. Not only does user-generated content keep games alive even longer, it can make rock stars out of diehard fans. And while it's not easy being (or working with) rock stars, the crazy idea and crazy people behind the Network have changed what user-generated content can be, and not just for rhythm gaming. Join Rock Band Network authors and some Harmonix staff as they look back at over two years of content and discuss the lessons they've learned, the hurdles they've faced, and what it all means for bringing more user-generated content to even more games."

    I don't think its RB4.

    You mistook that. The history of the development of the game will be on display. They did not say a demo or what not would be on display.

    And technically they didn't say that the history of the game on display will be the announced game.

    When Harmonix says they're up Saturday morning, you have to scroll past 'Friday' on the calendar.

    That's a separate panel specifically for the rbn. It's not the hmx panel.

    If there was an option in RB3 to unload songs out of the game RAM so they would just be greyed out and not deleted out of the setlist.

    Okay, feel free to explain how the game would even load them to grey them out, then.

    Not in rb3 because that ship has sailed, but they could give you a list without loading any art/song previews/etc.

    Maybe it could be called music manager in its own menu, so that way only people how care about(or have to) customizing their song list would have to deal with it.

    It'd be something like the hide 1-lighter thing, only this way you can customize your whole list.
