Strange... The song is showing up with a release date of Aug 29, 2012.

Warning, Lowlander2 was kind enough to download the song for two dollars just to see if it would play. It does NOT show up in the game.

    I doubt it'll work; the block is at the software level and if they were going to bring it back, I'd presume it'd be through a patch and not double-dipping.

    Despite loading a new song into the cache, I still only have Wonderwall in my RB3 library. So, yeah.

    Am I the only one here who purchased the song when it came out? It says I already bought it when I logged in. It's still a dud, nothing to see here.

    thanks for looking into this, sorry you lost $2. Harmonix needs to look into this before they have a bunch of pissed off people downloading the song and it not showing up... and maybe give you a download code just to be nice...

    No they won't, here's why:

    I'd check RB1/2 since that's the form of DLC he bought, not RB3/RBB

    Well, I'm from "Europe", so...

    And don't worry about no refunds or anything.

    BTW Harmonix should really talk to Microsoft about the last sentence in that disclaimer it says the same thing for Hier Kommt Alex.

    It was originally pulled entirely from the market, do this is just the standard description they use.

    That is so messed up. Would it be so unwieldy to call it SCEEO/same for whatever Microsoft's equivalent is?

    Did you notice it said "Compatible with Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz" at the bottom of the description.

    Europe only had access to that song via RB1 export until today. Maybe HMX is planning on releasing "Monsoon", "Rock and Roll Star" and "Hier Kommt Alex" as DLC in Europe so Americans that have purchased the DLC don't suffer.

    I'm pretty sure you're wrong about that. They had the Dani California/Black Hole Sun treatment of being playable in RB1 and 2, but not 3.

    Nope, just something gone awry. If they were bringing it back, it would more then likely a RB3 version like GIA, Spoonman, CTP2.

    I was talking about getting the song, not playing it in RB3.

    Kind of odd that you chose to link the Great Britain page, for when you switch back to US, the release date is its usual 2008 release

    If you check the other songs that were in the European release of RB1 (such as Hysteria), they too have their natural US DLC release date, but are also listed as August 29th, 2012 in the UK. I'm assuming it's related to Blitz in some way, of course, perhaps to properly recognize the Euro songs as DLC and not as part of the RB1 setlist when sorting by source in Blitz. Who knows. At any rate, the Oasis song got caught up in it, seeing as it was originally part of the pack

    Weird... the reason I spotted it was because it was listed right below "Blitz" when I bought it from the Marketplace... pretty sure I was on the USA site, especally since Blitz works fine.

    I've confirmed that it's on the marketplace via the console too. Now checking RB Music Store app.

    EDIT: It's not on the store or playable in Blitz and RB3. I think more info could come in Friday's DLC announcement. It may just be something as simple as HMX wanted to give Muse fans a pro upgrade for Hysteria.

    Intriguing.

    I'd love to have Hier Kommt Alex and Oasis again. I hope a confirmation will happen tomorrow.

    Huh, weird, I see those as well (logging into live.xbox.com from Canada puts me on the "en-GB" site), along with a few others.

    It even shows Hysteria (already purchased) as having been released yesterday.

    Harmonix finally "releases" more Muse.....

    Looking at the list, it's all the Euro singles except the 1 which didn't export from RB1 ("Monsoon" by Tokio Hotel).

    Eh, Not if they're busy with PAX. I guess we'll have some answer next week.

    Lowlander, you still have RB2? Maybe you can check and see if it works there?

    Mostly just curious though.
  • grumblevolcanogrumblevolcano Headliner

    Everyone, important announcement:

    "Monsoon" by Tokio Hotel is NOW on the European DLC store!

    EDIT: "Perfekte Welle" is the only Euro RB1 song not on the marketplace.
