Question is in the title - has Harmonix given us a date as to when the sale ends?

Getting a 1600 MSP card as a bonus for a purchase, but I don't know if I'll have it in time.

Thanks!

    They have said that it will at least run through the fifth anniversary, and that's Nov 20.

    It took them a year to switch the prices the first time so I'm sure it will be at least a few months.

    Is it going back? I was under the assumption that it might be a permanent change. Since most of the songs are fairly old, and don't have harmonies/keys, pro etc.

    I might be wrong but that was what I was taking away from it. That it was a permanent price drop for the pre-RB3 DLC.

    Yeah, I forgot who (probably Henry), but it was said that the sale would at least run through the November anniversary.

    This was nice. I picked up another 40 songs this weekend.

    The only problem that I see is I'm getting close to the 1000 songs mark. I thought I read that the game will only recognize 1000 songs at a time. I'll have to go through and delete some of the stuff I don't play to clear up some room for new stuff.

    That's Blitz and that's number of songs played. The RB3 limit is 3000 something and that's song count.

    Sweet, thanks.

    Although I'm pretty sure they said Blitz had no limit because of the simplicity of the game.

    I don't have nearly enough songs to try that out, but it makes sense. I just know there is a song limit for RB3 and Blitz has a weird play amount problem that isn't present in RB3.

    Either way, I really only care about RB. I suck at Blitz! I can't seem to score worth a crap, which is funny to me because I'm pretty good at RB.

    We don't have a definitive end date set but, as many posters have pointed out, it will run through the end of November at least. Possibly longer.

    I sure do hope the sale ends at December 1st (or the latest) :D The sale kicks off and I have no money -_- It's already like a month and a half that went by :(

    I just bought more stuff today.

    Stupid HMX and their inciting prices. Must have more willpower...

    Don't worry LD. I've already spent about four hundred dollars and I plan on spending a lot more.

    This sale will be the death of me.

    Then their plan has been a smashing success.

    Exactly! They say they're doing this for the fans who have stood by them for five years, but they're doing it to stuff their greedy little pockets!

    Still, I appreciate it a lot! Thanks Harmonix! ;)

    You've dropped four hundred dollars on sale-priced DLC??? I am impressed! I went through and only found 44 songs that I knew and definitely wanted but didn't choose to buy at full price (though several songs I would have bought at full price had I noticed them before).

    It's getting pretty close to Rock Band's 5th anniversary. Also, a strange thing I noticed on my Wii is that the "SALE!" category on the store's home screen is gone, yet all of the songs are still discounted. I wonder what this could mean...

    You spent 400 dollars??? What?

    I was barely able to spend £30 ($55 maybe..) Jesus..... I still managed to get a good number of songs though. Library went from 630 up to 678 in less than a month :D

    I'll check my ps3 to see if the SALE! category is still there.

    I have to buy at least other two full albums before the sale ends, so I guess I have to buy another 50 € card. I've spent at least 70 € on discounted DLC.

    the sale will end one second after it doesn't end.

    The official 5 year anniversary is next week and we'll hopefully have some more news about the sale on the Monday livestream. Keep posted!

    My assumption all along was that it was permanent.

    How many sales are you going to generate at full price after such a significant sale.

    Yeah, I don't see why they would go back now, unless the whole sale was timed, but yeah I'm gonna be buying a crapload of songs next week when i'm back from college!

    If the sale was permanent, they would have flat-out said so in the first place.
