I doubt there will be song imports of this content into Rock Band 2; Harmonix (and Apple Music) have been quite vocal about this being completely separate to the existing "platform".

 

Of course, that was all before they announced the title with Rock Band in it ;)

Well, I just hope you can export the RB2 tracks to the HDD and make those playable in this version. Either way it's the same. :D What's interesting is the pricing on the Guitar and the Premium Edition. The stand alone game remains the same price but the other two are much higher than their RB2 counterparts. I hope they release full size versions of the guitars and maybe the drum set comes with cymbals as a standard. There's really nothing new in this press release, the only big thing is the date, the 10th anniversary of the Sega Dreamcast. :D

I will not buy more plastic instruments, I will not buy more plastic instruments, I will not buy more plastic instruments, I will not buy more plastic instruments, I will not buy more plastic instruments.

 

Gotta just keep telling myself that.

 

Oooo, it's Paul's Bass.

Oh my :) Beautiful. I was wondering why the backing vocals on Under The Sea were cranked up until I noticed the multi-singer support. Sweeeeet!

 

I could never get my dad near these games but I'm sure he'll enjoy singing for this one :)

Woo! Can't wait. That looks great. I love how many different looks to the band there are, not just different venues, and the UI has a bit of a makeover to fit.

 

It looks like there's 4 voice tracks!!

 

I think it's just 3, but still that's pretty awesome.
