    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?

    Nirvana's Nevermind DLC tuesday! (jk, maybe) but seriously the DLC for tuesday has to be huge, maybe something metallica related

    wouldnt having a DLC list for the rest of the year be amazing?
    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 ;)

    I know it'd be pointless announcing it in Seattle but... Rock Band 2 Europe release date maybe?

    Conspiracy theorists, start your engines.

    Hmm. Seattle indeed.

    Nah, it's been confirmed now. There's a thread on the forums now that confirms the stupid frickin' PAX pack and the Offspring (which is awesome.)

    What could be left for them to announce? The 20 free RB2 tracks? Maybe some feature that has yet to be revealed. Who knows, but i'm sure the forums will be full of wild speculation! lol
    Maybe that the game has been pushed up to the 8th rather than the 15th?

    Well it has been discovered that next weeks DLC will be a PAX 3-pack and an Offspring 3-pack as Microsoft jumped the gun and have it shown on the dashboard ads. See here. I'm guessing they will be revealing what the 20 free DLC tracks are going to be. On that note, I've always had a conspiracy theory that we will get to choose 20 tracks from all of the currently available DLC but obviously that would suck for someone who purchased all of it already.

    They got Metallica back from those bastards at Activision?

    Please? I need more Metallica in my Rock Band.

    20 free DLC has been leaked. I sort of feel sorry for HMX amongst this epic sprawl of failures.

    Metallica are Activisions bitches. RB won't be seeing them after Battery I'm guessing.

    What a teaser! Can't wait to see what the announcement ends up being. Maybe the 20 Free DLC songs for Rock Band 2? After the album announcements, I don't know how they could top it!
