    Mark this down Epic DLC has been promised. Let the wild and baseless speculation begin.

    For example, complete Creed discography (Not epic but totally wild and baseless). Disclaimer I don't really like Creed that much I just randomly thought of a band; so no flaming.

    Pick a better random band next time. ;) Creed had 1 good song, and it was on their first CD.

    Cold man cold. :p But if you want to be like that how about the best of the 90s (boy band addition). Backstreet, N'sync, 98 Degrees all the hits. Better?

    I initially laughed, and then realized what an amazing idea this was. Not for me, but for all the ladies that I play rock band with who complain that there aren't any songs they know how to sing.

    I know I thought the same thing which is scary. And FYI if this pack shows up I want Royalties.

    Backstreet? Under no circumstances
    N'Sync - some, would prefer Justin Timberlake solo
    98 degrees - some (at least they were on the Motown label)

    I would much rather have REAL R&B - Temptations, Jacksons, Earth Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Boyz II Men, Tony Toni Tone, etc.

    Of course, all songs used would have to be chartable for RB.

    If thats true, I did not know that. Also, the SpraynWipe blog divulged nothing, we didn't already know from the numerous E3 reports. I thought JohnLok said his blog had some great info and was waiting in the approval pipeline.

    I could have wrote the same blog as SpraynWipe...nothing new in there, that wasn't covered in the 30 Minute Developer Demonstration.

    Teasdale = Spraynwipe, right? - that is correct.


    Sure there was... we now know the endless set list is about 10 hours long for one thing and does not include the 20 free DLC.

    Additional pedal was confirmed.

    Kick pedal will not fall off if you pick the drum kit up

    There are guidelines in the legs of the drums to help get them set up straight

    If you get beat in a battle, the system will e-mail you telling you were surpassed.

    The background to the song Everlong (trippy colors) was a "Opportunity Gig" where the band accepted a challenge to have a music video made... meaning the backgrounds were changed based on what was chosen during the tour.

    You will always be able to earn new fans, no more locking it down based on your level of play.

    Roughly 90% of what you describe above was mentioned in the Developer video. The guy even lifted the drums up, in the video to show the attachments, second kick pedal and that the kick pedal doesn't fall off. The only thing "new" was that the endlist setlist only contains the 84 retail disc songs, which from Rock Band 1, was a given. The video opportunity was also mentioned at E3.

    My bad, you're problem was you aren't familiar with baseless speculation and jokes. He was kidding.

    What if I don't have very many XBL friends with Rock Band 2? Can I still do the challenges with a random online band?

    i honestly think they got the best of boston. (there first album).

    id not argue with more rush though, there is a TON of songs we could use, Fly by night, freewill, jacobs ladder, red barrechetta (spelling?), Subdivisions, and more! id also like a master of Tom Sawyer, and Lime Light please. id totally buy.
