Lowlander2;4696108 said:It's my humble opinion that, yes, while the 360's D-Pad is not exactly top of the range, meaning 4 input would be a bit impractical, perhaps, as afar as I know, the PS2 titles used 3 of the 4 face buttons for their inputs.
Lowlander2;4696067 said:Well, this video shows that "solo restriction" is still in effect. That is, when a solo is playing, you have to play just that track.

SirDavidTLynch;4696119 said:According to the first post in the thread:"There were two reasons we settled on two [lanes for each instrument]: one was that the modern controller is better suited to two [lanes] instead of three [like the gameplay of] Frequency and Amplitude"
Magnet;4696125 said:I don't know about Blitz since a lot of the details haven't been revealed yet, but with Unplugged you could just turn the Solo thing off if you wanted.
MagicMurderBag7;4696129 said:Are there anymore full song playthough videos like the one LowLander posted? Id love to see a song that is more then just one long guitar solo.
SirDavidTLynch;4696090 said:I saw nothing in the article that said there will never be a Rock Band 4.
Meat-Popsicle;4696145 said:Already the forthcoming XBLA title "Rock Band: Blitz" has taken over the design of the site. That's the future of Rock Band, the keystone of the franchise: a downloadable mini-game.

RycheMaidenPS3;4696256 said:Don't care about the game itself, care about the DLC. A lot. Please be good. Please!
Lowlander2;4696136 said:You're being impatient again. Livestream. Also please don't capitalise the second L like that. I love you forever.

Meat-Popsicle;4696070 said:http://ps3.ign.com/articles/122/1222273p1.htmlAnother thing this article makes clear something that everyone else has known for a long time, but the people here in the echo-chamber just won't acknowledge: there is no WAY we are ever going to get a Rock Band 4. The genre isn't just down from it's heyday, it is permanently DEAD.
Meat-Popsicle;4696145 said:Read between the lines: the genre is OVER and it will never again be profitable to pump millions of dollars into a full-scale Rock Band game. The only people who expect there to be RB4 (or even RB3.5) are those that desperately hope that it will happen, a few thousand passionate niche gamers. The rest of the gaming world doesn't even ask the question, because the answer is so clearly, "of course not!". Look at the front page! Already the forthcoming XBLA title "Rock Band: Blitz" has taken over the design of the site. That's the future of Rock Band, the keystone of the franchise: a downloadable mini-game.
