About the "trailer" you may have seen

edited July 2007 in Announcements
Hey all,



The video of a trailer you may have seen on various sites was taken from a conference where attendees are generally encouraged to be casual and show off the new stuff they are working on privately. Apparently an attendee videotaped the talk. The trailer was made from an old build of the game quite some time ago for internal purposes- basically to get people working on the game excited. The song was one we have considered for the game but haven?t locked down, and you may have noticed that the trailer footage was made so long ago that the people in the video are playing old instruments and prototypes. I guess what I am saying is- this isn?t official and doesn?t really reflect the final game at all. We?ll be releasing a lot of info next week from much newer builds of the game with finalized songs.



Rock,

Sean

    Even that old prototype version was looking awesome, makes me laugh at Activision's claim that Rock Band is just "an imitation Guitar Hero" :D

    If that's just an old prototype, then maybe I should make sure I'm in an isolation room when the big details come out next week. And then I can pull a Cartman and freeze myself until November/December. Yeah, that'll have to do. For the first time ever, I wish I lived near Boston :)

    So what you're saying is that the new trailer is going to blow me through the back of my room and then steal my shoes while I'm unconscious? Consider me wowed.

    I hope me and my friends are not forced to stand that close to each other when we actually play...





















    Who am I kidding... I don't have any friends.


    Edit: By the way, is there some legal issue with this? Because it seems like Mr. Sean (not sure what to call him) is doing damage control all over this forum.

    I'd guess it's more that Sean wants to make it clear that this is an early, unrepresentative build before people start whining and complaining about problems that have already been fixed. Especially because most forum commenters (on other forums) are morons:

    "OMG, where r the fenders???! ! This game sux!"
    "The cover sux! I'm sticking with GH3!"
    "It looks too expensive! Rock Band will fail!"

    And so on.

    Hahaha, me too.

    By the way Sean, you should start counting your money from now. Two of the videos on youtube already have well over 30,000 views.

    hey Sean,

    so...this is an old build (obviously, using the GH2 Xbox360 guitars)....and I think it has already sold many more of us on the game than anything else we've seen previously (my gf stood there and watched it and her only comment was, "so $#@#$ awesome, they better have chick-vocal songs (like The Donnas, etc)!"

    (she thinks she's going to be the 'lead singer' for us hahaha)

    I guess my point is that I know you are doing damage control on this video that should never have been shown, but tell the rest of the kids at Harmonix that this is possibly the best kind of advertising you could ever have wished for.

    Especially once you show the "new" video of the game and periphials in action.

    All I or any of my friends can say is "HOLY #@%@#$ # WOW!!!" and "so...when are we going to be able to buy this???"

    after seeing this vid...I'm completely and totally sold on this game (not like I wasn't before). Props to you guys for integrating all of the main parts of a band into a game. It looks crazy-fun!

    New info on finalized songs? I think I just creamed myself...

    Luckily, though I won't be at home next week to watch E3 on G4, I'm recording it via satellite! Harmonix, if G4 doesn't give you long on the air, you punch them in the face because that would be very, very rude.

    every thing said tho..... GNR BETTER BE IN THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    but i think that "you could be mine" by guns n roses would be a great choice for the drums alone

    i would say if gn'r are in the game how about "locomotive" about 7 or 8 mins. of non stop guitar with like 3 solos.
    Although being a gn'r fan any would be cool with me

    No, the IGN article is up to date, although still talking about prototype peripherals and the game as it is now, which is not finalized.

    although there was a lot of song info in the article. If this isn't what he was was referring to, then I guess we can expect another revealing article in the coming days. Sweeet, info started to come on the regular.

    If that was only half as good as the real thing is going to be, than this is what I'll be saying.
