Less Downloadable Content for PS3?

I have been playing on my friend's xbox360 version of RB3 and liked some of their songs.

When I bought the PS3 version today and went onto the Store online to buy some of the same songs they didn't appear. Why is this?

Also on the main page it says there are '3857 rock band songs' but when I go onto the PS3 store it has something like 2453 songs, am I missing something?! :(

I don't know if it makes any difference but I am based in the UK.

Please help,

Thanks,
Adgold86

    Since the 360 provides the tools that make RBN possible, it takes at least a month for the songs to be up for importing to the PS3. And even then they sometimes don't make it.

    Not all RBN tracks make it over because they're literally made with tools Microsoft put on the 360. Be glad you get any.

    I do appreciate that Microsoft make it possible for RBN but there's about 1000 songs difference between what it says than on the PS3 store, I feel like I need to download an update or something?

    never mind fhq over there, he's been a bit moody lately >_>

    basically RBN works on something that would usually be xbox only, but HMX (being awesome and all that stuff) ports over 5 songs a week for PS3 users to enjoy.
    there are several reasons why there aren't more ported over. Mostly because it costs time and money to port over and test the songs for that console. if you do see some good songs on your friends xbox that you aren't able to get, then try to request them in the PS3 RBN request thread on here, and maybe you'll see them come to PS3 soon!

    also, as you said that you're in the EU, it makes a small difference in the fact that Sony Europe seems to have a few problems getting all the DLC on the store on time, or at all sometimes. but it usually gets fixed pretty quickly. so that might be a reason why you sometimes might not see the latest DLC (or all of it)

    edit: and yes, the DLC difference of around 1,000 is correct. the RBN on xbox sometimes gets 20(ish) songs a week. so there is quite a difference.

    be thankful your not on the wii, those poor suckers get none of the new RBN songs. Xbox gets all the songs because the tools to make the songs is made for the xbox. PS3 gets the best selling, most requested songs. Which comes out at 5 per week.

    20 songs a week? I wouldn't say that. I'd say it has been 20 songs a week before, but that's far from the average. But it is more than 5 a week (usually) and so PSN will always be falling behind.

    It's okay though, because hardly any songs worth buying aren't ported over anyway.

    She said sometimes 20 songs a week. Not usually 20 songs a week or most of the time 20 songs a week.

    Well Xbox used to get 20 or more songs in a week sometimes. Really don't know how far back you'd have to go to find one of those weeks.

    apart from the this month and the last, every month this year had at least 1 week with 15+ songs.

    as for last time 20 +
    in januari we had 19 songs on the 12th, and the week after (19th) had 24

    The bad news for PS3ers: We only get 5 songs a week and at least 30 days delayed from the 360 release, if ever. Some older RBN songs are not accessable as they can only port RBN2 songs now.

    The good news: HMX does listen to community requests as well as port over the best selling tracks. While I haven't gotten absolutely everything I've wanted, I've gotten a good chunk of it.

    I wouldn't say that. Every song is worth buying to someone. I'm still patiently waiting for my Felsen fix.

    I've had a few songs on my request list for almost a year, and fear they'll never come over. it makes me sad, as some I'd buy over official DLC.

    Here's a list that I maintain of all RBN songs available on PS3:
