    PAX pack DLC (Epic groan) and the 20 free DLC maybe? Neither would be terribly shocking, although it would be nice to get the 20 free song confirmed.

    There is a sticky in the Rock Band forums that says the DLC announcement will be tomorrow after the PAX panel.

    Artists who are performing at PAX. MC Chris. MC Frontalot. Nerdcore. That isn't exciting news to me.
    The only thing that would excite me is a RB2 EU release date. You'd need to be an idiot to expect that though.

    I'm gonna go along with most of the posters here and say that it's gonna be the 20 free tracks and of course this week's DLC, which points towards the PAX/Nerdcore pack.

    But just this alone wouldn't be that huge of an announcement would it? I mean the 20 free tracks would be nice but I don't think anyone considers them huge since we already know they're coming.

    Maybe something we don't know about yet?

    Im guessing its going to be the rest of the DLC leading up to rock band 2, and the 20 free dlc and maybe a month schedule of dlc like they did with rock band 1 for the first month

    Big announcement=power rangers theme song as DLC. :D

    I bet it is something concerning the 20 free DLC, or some really famous band that they just got a hold of.

    Or Phase is gonna be an XBL arcade game. That would be awesome, but we are talking about Rock Band here. Or are we? :D

    20 free songs is no big announcement: we've all seen the leaked list and it seems too plausible not to be real. I hope to God that it's more than the 20 free songs/ predicted awful DLC or else Harmonix are practically begging for a backlash. Obviously the albums would have been a great announcement, but MTV and EW had to screw that up royally. Announcements, sure. Big announcements, hell no.

    I agree, I have a feeling it's going to be something more than any of us know right now.

    Maybe a new game that they're working on?

    The panel starts at 1 pm Pacific and is 90 minutes long. Therefore, it ends at 2:30 pm Pacific, which is 5:30 pm Eastern.

    No, the speculation and excitement of the unknown is awesome.

    Probably not. HMX have failed to surprise since RB1 was announced. There's nothing more to now about RB2. We're 99.9% sure of the Nerdcore DLC (I hate this phrase but: Epic Fail.) That leaked list will be confirmed for 20 free DLC. I doubt HMX have bothered to get any big bands signed up that we don't know of. I smell Epic screw-ups and a huge backlash.

    I just don't want anything Rock Band related. You're on a panel of Harmonix History, make something of that damn history and rejuvinitalize the two games that are still your most beloved and best, Frequency and Amplitude.

    Maybe a PSN re-release. I would go out and buy a PS3 right now if you said those were coming.

    But no point getting my hopes up. Us Freq's can only take "We don't really care about you guys" so much from HMX staff :/

    I hope you're wrong but I guess we'll see.

    I hope I'm wrong but HMX shouldn't promise what aren't going to deliver (no that isn't a reference to the MP fiasco, but sort of refers to the Nevermind Fiasco. EDIT: Oh yeah and the Metallica fiasco. Covering their entire catalogue my ass, HMX, at least the asses at Actvision are actually trying.)

    i think its going to be next weeks dlc, the 20 free dlc, and a set date of all the rock band 2 releases. after that, anything bigger than that would be too epic for the internet to handle, thus sending it into the a crash of the rock band servers. but with the rock band 2 announcement at e3, there wasn't any speculation at all. nothing like what we are posting in.

    FWIW, The Offspring is playing in Seattle on 9/1. We know they have more coming to RB and they'll be in the area already. Wouldn't be surprised if they ended the 90-minute HMX panel with a 30-minute concert of 6 or 7 songs.

    Plus, the speculation thread was originally "mis"titled 9/1 instead of 9/2.

    "Conspiracy (of One) Theory" indeed ;)
