HazyCloud;2303699 said:Each mic should take a controller spot on the console. A simple USB hub won't work this time. We would need a hub that allows 3 mics but only takes one spot as the controller.
TheKitchenMan;2306860 said:Do the Lips mics take up a controller slot or not? I saw this question somewhere else, but I don't know if I ever saw a definitive answer. If they do not, then this would take care of the problem on the 360, at least.

whofan;2301467 said:The PS2 is almost 10 years old, perhaps it can't handle the processing needed for this game?
I feel for ya, I really do, but the PS2 has had it's run. It's like me saying why doesn't this come out on Xbox (original), or Gamecube, or Dreamcast?
russintexas;2307250 said:They do not take controller slots. On all 3 platforms, microphones are handled completely separately from controllers.
HazyCloud;2308190 said:Wrong. When using the standard Rock Band microphone on the Xbox 360, it will take up one spot as 1 of the 4 controllers. Sure you can be specific and say the actual mic doesn't take the slot and the controller does, but you need a controller activated to use the mic.If LIPS doesn't take up 2 slots while using the mics, this is probably how RB: The Beatles will do it.
iamtheddrman;2308329 said:Actually, you are wrong. The controller takes up the slot, not the microphone. I can plug in the microphone anytime I want without losing a controller slot. If I want to play Vocals on Rock Band, I have to plug in a controller.
iamtheddrman;2308329 said:Well, the guitars are controllers too, so why couldn't they select difficulty for both the vocal harmony and the guitar?
Abaddon;2308075 said:At the end of the day, it really is up to MTV Games/Harmonix to decide if it is worth their while to make Rock Band for the PS2. Either they will or won't, based on whether they think it will make them enough money to return on their investment. Maybe they aren't happy with sales of PS2 Rock Band, who knows. As other posters have pointed out, the PS2 is getting long in the tooth and more publishers are making this kind of decision every day. Whether it is fair or not, the bottom line is you are going to find less and less new software being made for the console over time.
HazyCloud;2308521 said:They can. The discussion here is how it will work. The Xbox only accepts 4 controllers. If The Beatles will support 3 mics, they all need to only take one slot combined for it to work. They can't each have their own slot on the console.
TheKitchenMan;2308594 said:How I was thinking it would work would be that the first standard controller is obviously for vocals. Then, I imagined that there would some setting to turn vocals on/off during the time you choose guitar/bass. If you choose vocals on, then a mic is tied to your controller (plastic guitar). I also thought that there would be a way to choose which vocal part you sang i.e. lead, backing #1, backing #2.
HazyCloud;2308521 said:You didn't read my whole post, did you? What you just said in yours, I said in mine. To use the mic on your console, you need a controller plugged in. Thus causing the mic to take up one of controller slots. The mic does not work on any RB game without a controller.They can. The discussion here is how it will work. The Xbox only accepts 4 controllers. If The Beatles will support 3 mics, they all need to only take one slot combined for it to work. They can't each have their own slot on the console.
C-Pr0mpt;2309081 said:You guys are getting your hopes up over this harmony stuff. I don't think it's gonna work out how you people are intending it to. When everything is said and done, I think you are still only going to be able to make 4 selections at a time. Rather that be a guitarist, drummer, bassist, and vocalist, or 3 vocalists and just a drummer.... You get my point.
