Hey Rock Fans!

edited December 2007 in Announcements
I'm glad you all came out! Over the next couple days I'll be introducing you to a few Harmonix people who will be hanging around on this forum talking to you all and posting blogs on their profiles. We're shooting for at least one every day M-F. That said I would like to post some rules up here if I may

- Don't post anything that is racist/sexist/creedist...basically stuff that is just meant to offend people. I think we've all been on boards like that and it generally sucks. This could get you banned for a few days or banned permanently based on the seriousness of the offense.

- Don't post anything copywritten, or post links to hacks or stolen music/videos/books/anything. Keep in mind we are making a game here and we have partnerships with companies that will make our game awesome that could be adversely affected by that sort of thing. We want to maintain those relationships and make an awesome game for you. This will get you banned. Probably permanently.

-No spam. No one likes spam. No one is going to buy your 1/2 price pharmaceuticals, your opinions on penny stock garbage, or your inane spam poetry of random words. First of all it isn't rock, second of all it is the worst possible way to advertise to a person. This is an immediate permanent ban and we will forward your weird foreign IP to the appropriate parties. We may also have a party at your house when you aren't there and break your stuff.

-Have fun and start networking. This is imperative.


Thanks,
hmxsean

    As a drummer whos been playing Guitar Hero for a year or two, I am of course psyched out of my mind about the prospect of a drum peripheral. I look forward to seeing this 'drum controller' revealed, with bated breath. That, and I'm really worried about what this beast is going to cost, but odds are, I, and millions of others, will pay for it. I'll be sure to keep up with all announcements here.

    I cannot wait for this game to come out.  I've been a Harmonix follower since the Frequency days and I can't wait to get my hands on this.

    After hearing about Activision buying Red Octane I was very, very afraid of what would happen to my precious Guitar Hero.  Will I be forced to play nothing but Jack Johnson on GH3?!?!  I sure hope not! 
    I must admit I did have an inkling that there would be a "band" type of game to be released, but I had no idea it would be THIS soon!  Am I excited? Yes. I'm I nervous? Even more so.  Thankfully you seem to be heading in the right direction, and getting us the end-users involved long before the release. I'm looking forward to playing it!

    So excited to see the Drum controller!!
  • edited April 2007

    I wonder how the drum controller will figure out.

     

    Will it be anything like my electric kit (obviously smaller)?

    This project has an incredible amount of potential, so much so that I've already found myself completely entranced with it. I can't wait until further, more concrete, details are revealed to the public.

    This is the game that will unequivocally thrust me into the "next gen".

    I'm one of those guys that went to a party, played the game, bought a PS2 and Game the next day.  Love what you've guys came up with and the originality over there is tops!!  I was recently shown Freq and Amp and was amazed that these games didn't get the attention they deserved!  Can't wait to see this one and here's to many more years of music for the gaming masses!

     

    /shot!

    sweet, looking forward to the blogs and the staff interaction. Thanks so much already for the quick responses you all have been giving.

    I can'T wait to see this game! I hope the game will be able to support electronic drum, that would be sweet ;) Whatever the result is gonna be, count me in :D

    I was just saying to a friend two weeks ago that the next evolution in these types of games would either be turntablism or someone going the whole hog with drums and karaoke intergration.. 


    Glad to see that it wasn't pipedreams like most of my predictions :D

    Course, now the test will be finding tracks that give all four players an equal challenge.. Not an easy feat, but I've got faith you guys can pull it off!

    I'll be like my brethren here and say how pumped I am for this game.  I just bought GH2 and am loving it, but I'm actually a singer, so this will be like a dream come true for me.

    Can't wait to rock this sh!t, homie!!!!

    All I ask is...

     

    Bring back the tunnel!

    (And possibly. more eves.)

    Another one chiming in on both "can't wait" and "announce it for the Wii"! :) I don't want to have to buy it for the 360 WITH WIRES! Wires suck!
  • edited April 2007
    Thank goodness its not an April Fools Joke, this game will make me flunk out of school.
  • edited April 2007

    This game looks totally awesome. I am a big fan of GH1 and 2. Many a night have I spent crying into my guitar trying to master Freebird.

    May I ask what plans you have for linking this game in with Home? image

    I highly doubt that they will develope the game with "more stuff" for your PS3. Hate to burst your bubble. Anyway, This game is sounding great. Bring it on.

    I want to know if there will be a battle of the bands. That would be cool if you got a band together and tried out to make the gig. Then competed against other bands for bragging rights. I can't wait!!!

    This is my 1st post and log on but I was wondering if there are any screenshots or in depth description of the game play? Approx release date? If this information is on this website just point me in the right direction. Thanks!:D
  • edited April 2007
    Not so much information yet. Just the basics -

    http://www.rockbandgame.com/index.php?do=/public/content/file_press/dir_language/

    We'll be releasing new info as it is ready to be released, we don't want to jump the gun or anything.

    This is very odd! I have been a huge fan of Guitar Hero since the first one
    came out and I said- I hope there will be a version for the drums someday.

    Then I was given a link here today and I was shocked to see that there
    were new guitars, a drum kit and a microphone coming out!!!

    This has certainly made my day, I am looking forward to seeing the new controllers
    very much!

    From Kotaku.com...This is an announcement if I've ever heard one!!!!


    "Metal news site The PRP are reporting that Queens of the Stone Age, who have a new album that needs shilling come June, have been confirmed as appearing in a bunch of video games. They list Madden 08 and NASCA-yes, I'm moving along. Of more (any) interest are the two other games they're "confirmed" to appear in, Guitar Hero III and Rock Band.

    This means they join the Allman Brothers, Joan Jett, Kansas, Nirvana and Wolfmother as confirmed artists for Rock Band, and unless I'm getting forgetful in my old age it makes them the first announced band for Guitar Hero III."

    Well actually I didnt believe they would do it but it just feels stupid to not make use of nearly 50gb...
    It could be a lot of more songs that would be available to download for free for 360 because of their "minidiscs" =P
    Well i guess you get my point, it's more something I would hope for than believe ^^
