    I am 100000000000000000000% for this if they get RB3 Versions with Pro Upgrades.

    Really? You're releasing the entire GD:RB setlist as DLC, and they're NOT EVEN GETTING KEYS UPGRADES? Why waste potential new DLC slots with content we already have?

    Also, screw SCEE, continuously delaying our content.

    This is going to be such a good day.

    And the thing is, Oh Love is the ONE song I would have bought a pro-guitar gupgrade for in about a year.

    As someone that doesn't have GD:RB, I don't mind this.

    I will cite that they've just established, in my mind, pre-RB3 DLC as worth $1. With that said, this doesn't strike me as a heavy keyboard group anyway, are they?

    Gonna listen and judge, as normal... but I honestly see no reason to not use this as an excuse to have more 4+ track weeks for a while. Three new DLC + 2-4 Green Day tracks a week would kick butt.

    Heck... the more I think of this, the more I like this precedent. I think the Wii folk would love it if RB1 were released this way, as an example.

    Listen to Last Night on Earth, Jesus of Suburbia and Restless Heart Syndrome, the latter and former being pretty much nothing BUT KEYS.

    Once all of the tracks have been released, Harmonix should release a "Green Day Megapack" with all of the songs for 1600 MSP. Because while I would have purchased GD:RB and the export key for maybe a combined price of twenty-five or thirty bucks, I'm not sure if I'm willing to cough up approximately eighty dollars to get these songs as DLC.

    Well, this is weird... but, heck, if HMX can do this with Green Day I have renewed hopes (dreams, fantasies, wishful thinking) they will find a way to push the Beatles over to Rock Band.

    I have the Green Day exported, so this will be another week of nothing for me... I really don't mind "Oh Love" as a song, so I might get it someday, but not any time soon.

    Surprised at no Pro Upgrades, especially for the rereleased songs.

    I can only hope the future Green Day rereleases have some Pro Upgrades.

    Only one song from GD RB has keys in it? That doesn't sound true at all. It's been a while since I played trough it but I remember 21st Century Breakdown having a few songs with keys.

    Wow, we've gone from 10 new songs a week, to three new songs a week, to...one new song this week. This is truly an all-time low.

    I guess this is good for those who didn't get the game, but...

    the worst possible waste of DLC weeks. Ever. Especially if those coming weeks don't have any new content in addition to these tracks.

    For the record, I don't hate Green Day, I actually have all their available content. Still, absolutely ridiculous. I, like many others, yelled "What the ****!" out loud when I saw the announcement.

    Oh it's pretty easy to understand 3 albums -> 3 weeks of DLC that requires no work to be finished, they can keep the schedule going without having to put resources to it.
    The game itself is hard to find a new copy of so it will be good for people who are coming to the tracks from blitz.

    It's a shame that there's no pro guitar support anywhere, but for such an underused product that makes sense.

    Yeah, since these are technically pre-RB3 songs, shouldn't I be able to get them for a dollar each?

    Oh man this isnt going to be a pretty day, i always try and see positive things regarding DLC, to which yeah its awesome we get a new Green Day song. But a band who are obviously keen to work with hmx, not to mention have 3 new albums coming out and we get one song. Thats a massive bummer.

    I dont get why a standard 3 pack wasnt released with two other singles with the 4 tracks on the side. Im pretty sure the rage this thread will get wouldnt be so bad. But just the one song for the hardcore fans, not a good week at all

    One new song. Ugh....granted I do like the song....but come on. It's just getting depressing now.

    This.

    But because they are the exact same tracks, unaltered, it's a little weird to me. Still, I get why they're doing it, and I respect Harmonix's decisions.

    Yeah there are plenty of songs which have keys in them

    I would laugh my ass off if they released greenday songs, 3 at a time, week after week until they have released every song from the game...

    Harmonix Glorious Logic thread:

    "Hey HMX, there's loads of songs that need harmonies and piano and pro upgrades that were on Rock Band 1 and 2!"
    "Boston would be the best band ever for keys!"
    "Why doesn't This I Love have a keys upgrade considering the whole song is keys?"
    "Can we get The Beatles songs on Rock Band?"

    LOL NO HAVE GREEN DAY

    "Do they have ke-"

    NO TOO MUCH HARD WORK

    As somebody who owns GD:RB already (I don't like Green Day at all, but the family does) and has exported the songs I don't have a problem with this. I'm more bugged that none of the DLC in months has been to my taste, but this stuff happens I guess.

    Now that these songs have their own parts in the store surely you guys can add pro upgrades for them? The store seems to be able to tell if a song is already in my library from a track pack or whatever even if I didn't buy it as DLC, so surely this can now be possible for Green Day?

    I'm VERY happy these AREN'T RB3 versions, even if I support them normally, for a simple reason. These songs don't have keyboard parts and already have harmonies. There would be no benefit to releasing RB3 versions of them outside of making two separate songs for a track that has no differences. This way online play doesn't have to become segregated if people are owning different versions of the same song.

    I hope that the Green Day tracks coming in don't delay the kind of music I'm looking for though for the DLC pipeline...

    If you guys do this to RB1 or RB2 tracks like you've suggested before you need to do RB3 versions for some of those though where possible. They'd really benefit from it.

    I can only give my personal example - I didn't buy the game because there's only about 10 Green Day songs I would want and I didn't want to have like 50 in my library. This was also before the one-lighter filter was introduced, which has made it much easier to tolerate the bulk exports.

    It is a weird situation, but for cherry-pickers like me it's actually quite convenient.

    This!

    Why they insist on only releasing one pack a week now is beyond me.....especially when that one pack is filled with 4 songs that many people already have!

    Cool I guess, for those who got into rock band with blitz. I just hope that the other releases of GD:RB as DLC won't replace new songs.

    No pro upgrades AT ALL really makes this announcement kinda stupid. I don't play pro, but what's the point to release Green Day songs if you don't put out pro upgrades? You could just wait until you have the upgrade ready... I suppose.

    The choices aren't that good either. Really, Good Riddance? On RB was ok, but Blitz?

    I already have GD:RB, and Oh Love is just a mediocre Green Day song slowed down.

    I respect their decisions, but that doesn't mean that I agree with all of them.
    What I fear is that the massive moaning from the community will make them not want to rerelease old content, which is just another nail in the coffin to those who want RB3 Versions.


    And I swear I'll blow a gasket if they release Monster again WITHOUT it being a RB3 Version. I freaking swear >:I
