Hi everyone on the RBN i was just wondering if any developers would be willing to make They might be giants download on PSN it would be great since They might be giants , is truly a legendary band with many songs like Doctor worm, Ana Ng, Experimental Film, Your not the boss of me now, Istanbul, New York City, Birdhouse in your soul. I think it would be awesome to have these songs in mine and many other RB fans collection. I looked on Youtube the other day and found this

    It is possible that new requests for RBN songs may be done, but will only be released on Xbox 360 at this time.

    Please read this first for general information about the end of weekly DLC (including RBN releases on PS3), especially:

    4. Will the Rock Band Network continue to release content on a regular basis?

    The current plan is for Harmonix to continue to support the backend technology that powers Rock Band Network on the Xbox 360 for the foreseeable future. Users on the Xbox 360 should be able to submit new content, test, and release as they have been for the last 3 years. It's important to note that this architecture relies on other technologies not directly in Harmonix's control, including the XNA architecture for submission. In the event that our ability to keep RBN up and running changes, we'll make sure to let everyone in the Creators community know with as much lead time as possible.

    Unfortunately, PS3 submissions for RBN tracks are submitted in the same manner as standard Harmonix-released DLC and require constant Harmonix production attention. As a result, the last PS3 RBN release planned on our schedule is on April 2nd.

    Sorry, but RBN compatibility ended for the PSN a few weeks ago, so even if they did get the band it's too late to get them on the PS3.

    And we won't be getting the band. They're not interested in RBN, they're not interested in Rock Band, they haven't been for years. Sorry.

    Any reason why they're not interested? Seems like their kind of thing.

    It may not be them, but someone else on the supply chain. Further disclosure, as we know, could permanently burn some bridges, so we may never actually know what happened here.

    I know they've publicly discussed not wanting to go through the engineering effort required, especially on the older songs. Any other motives, yea, not likely to be disclosed.

    It takes a lot more manpower to get the songs approved for PS3 than for Xbox on HMX's end. Since they're moving on to other projects it's probably their best way to handle RBN, with employees being put onto different unannounced games.

    A bunch of reasons. LHV has it pretty much covered--with the exception of note authoring and audio work--and possibly extra work on the legal and accounting side--submitting RBN tracks to PSN and Wii Shop requires just as much effort as submitting their own tracks (playtesting/QA, paperwork for respective shops, etc.) The only reason it's not an issue for the Xbox is because Microsoft's XNA architecture (and XBL Independent Games initiative) had already been set, ensuring that people had the ability to do the playtesting, distribution, and billing without Harmonix having to be there all the time.

    Short version, RBN on Xbox is Microsoft saying, "take it easy HMX, our boys'll handle it from here." On other versions, it's like any other DLC.

    Going off from PS3 transfer talk, if they ever released more DLC as a one-off, do you think they'd put it on PS3, or just XBOX? And along with that, do you think they'd bring over more RBN stuff to PS3 if they did?

    If there is a time when HMX releases more DLC for Rock Band, they'll do it for all consoles involved.

    It is more likely that the future of RBN content for the PS3 will be the same as it is for the Wii.
