Since 360 outsells PS3 for RB by like 3:1 (or more), that's a major issue.Do I necessarily expect an RB4 disc based game? Nope. Do I think that MadCatz could make an adapter puck, and that Harmonix might do an RB3.5 as an XBLA/PSN title? Not out of the question
Varient;4984671 said:Yes! The NDA thing is the huge holdup here. Until the companies give the go ahead, Harmonix staff can't say much at all. Some of the NDAs can also come from Harmomix itself as well.I don't see why a new console wouldn't mean Madcatz can't make new controller versions. The main difference between consoles when it comes to controllers (as I understand it) is the board inside. The plastic shapes remain pretty much the same between consoles, so it wouldn't be as hard or expensive as making a brand new controller from scratch design and all. Once the companies give the go-ahead (NDA again!) new boards can be put into the old controller shapes and we'll have 720 kits.
Dentata;4984684 said:Regarding the hope that NDA has any relevance here, I repeat the recent quote from HMXHenry "As called out in the FAQ, none of the games we're working on are RB or instrument based music games."

skyp1e;4984877 said:I do care about new content though. Eventually I want new.
peterock2007;4984880 said:Right that was my point in the other thread. It's great that we have all this content but eventually you gotta want new stuff.
skyp1e;4984882 said:Is that what you're trying to do, prove that my friend isn't going to like Rock Band because the DLC train is heading into the station?There's plenty of existing songs he can download even if dlc stopped tomorrow. It'll be fine.
bengino;4985047 said:EDIT: Not only that, but i am not sure how many people would jump to next gen for these games seeing that a number of us have vast RB libraries that wouldn't work with this new console... you know "no backwards compatibility" thing
