Numskull;4928320 said:Does any game company out there have more of a vested interest in DLC migration than Harmonix?I mean from one console to the next generation console from the same company, obviously.
Alternity;4928301 said:It would be stupid to not transfer, or use on both generation of consoles all of the DLC available, I can understand on the wii, because of the file system, which is totally ******ed, but the PS3 and the X360 are very able to do that, and alot of custommers spended alot of money on those consoles, so that would be a smart move. Ignoring that would be a very stupid move.
Alternity;4928412 said:Well, people bought games on PSN/XBL. If the next generation supports the disc-based games, they can support the DLC ones, hell they could even support the same account, with the same stuff.
Numskull;4928467 said:Of course they can, and of course they could. But will they? That question can't be answered soon enough for my liking.

Meat-Popsicle;4929104 said:If DLC doesn't transfer over to the PS4, I won't be buying one. Not in an attempt to spite or punish Sony: I have no expectation that they would ever change their mind after making such a decision in the first place. Rather, I expect that I will be perfectly happy to keep playing with my PS3 over the next 3-5 years. Heck, until about 2 years ago I was still using my PS2 fairly regularly.There are a stunning number of titles that I haven't even started on, enough to keep me entertained for at least a few years ... plus, of course, the never-gets-old standby of the whole Rock Band franchise.
ThatAuthoringGroup;4929108 said:While I can guarantee that most game DLC will transfer over, the problem is going to be that we're dealing with the music industry here.IF the songs were licensed for ROCK BAND and not just Rock Band on the 360/PS3 Wii, then we MIGHT be fine (but the fact that songs stopped working from RB2 to RB3 (both some on disc and DLC songs), isn't filling me with the greatest confidence.I mean if the labels say he we licensed these for Rock Band on these specific consoles, if you want them on the PS4, neXtBox, Wii-U, then license them again, then I'd have to say there's no way they will transfer over and Rock Band will stay on the current consoles.
Alternity;4929147 said:Well as far as I know the licensing was the same on every consoles, the difference was a different game, and not a different console. It might be true that the licensing is locked to the console AND the game, but it might just be locked on the game. Would be nice to have some confirmation on this, so we'd know what to expect.
