    So are the people who didn’t redownload the Dinosaur Jr. songs when they were accidentally put up at launch **** out of luck? These are by far my most missed songs in RB4

    No, they'll come eventually. Maybe XB1 and SIEA will end up with a large batch of fixes once SIEE has finally caught up.

    Is that really what they're waiting for? They're holding off on releasing any more delists in the states until SIEE stops sitting on their thumbs? I see "eventually" being the month before the PS5 is released. Then we start the whole cycle all over again on a new generation...

    Grumble is speculating. Don't take that as gospel.

    Awesome. That at least tells me the Spinal Tap songs aren't straggling because of legal issues (the talent and the studio have been involved in a rather lengthy lawsuit fighting over royalties stemming from This Is Spinal Tap, and I was starting to suspect HMX was holding back on re-upping those entitlements because of that).

    So now I know - it's not a legal issue keeping my PS4 from getting Spinal Tap songs, it's just good old fashioned technical difficulties.

    The only songs that could be affected, sadly, were the RB1 SIEE bonus songs because of the way those were handled.

    Any actual dlc songs should be air tight for USE in all RB platform games.

    It's why I suspect RBVR got RHCP dlc despite their songs starting to be delisted. Most people thought it was a change of heart, but to me it seems RBVR is part of the platform so any dlc that is currently sellable is fair game to sell on VR (which the RHCP song in question was iirc as it wasn't delisted yet).

    But it seems so strangely coincidental that, after over two years of waiting, when we were told that the fixes were completely independent and were in each console storefront's court... that after all this time, it gets fixed on both Xbox and SIEA on the same day?

    How much more concidental could it be?

    The answer is none.

    None more coincidental.
  • There is no licensing in putting files up for owners.

    So is it just absolute pure coincidence that two storefronts who have apparently been asked to put up this content for two years finally got it done, two years later, on the same day?

    Or was there a recent HMX-end push on these particular titles that made their coincidentally-timed availability more likely?

    We give them fixed content (or work with them to fix it). Then we say, "When can you get this up?" They aligned here. There's no conspiracy here, just incredibly boring information!

    Eh, boring conversation anyway ;)
  • Aw i forgot Stonehenge wasn't in the pack. Now waiting for the singles to arrive will be even more intriguing though.
