Have the Digital Deluxe version waiting on me to get home from work today. Can't wait!

Have we figured out the OT yet? I'm tempted to whip one up at work.

I disagree with the "utter garbage" comment, but judging from the demo the game perfectly tracks the user motions. The Ars Technica review compared the 360 and X1 versions of the game, and they felt the 360 version was more forgiving.

I don't think anyone's claimed it yet D:

I thought I was supposed to get let it go when it pre-ordered it but I can't seem to find it. What gives?
I was able to activate the game after 12:01 p.s.t. last night, so try to go into your games and apps and find it.

Oh it activitied fine. I was playing it this morning and I love it but I though digital preorders came with the 3 songs mentioned here:

But reading the digital game description after the fact it is now where to be found so I guess it must have been physical only which totally sucks as my daughter was pretty excited about let it go being included here.

It won't even let me buy the song individually =(

So does this game actually utilize Kinect 2.0 proper or is it like Kinect on the Xbox 360 which was utter garbage
It worked well for me, the reduced latency between your moves and the game really help it out a lot. The demo of this is definitely the best kinect game I've ever played.

So to clarify: physical pre-orders got the three tracks (including "Let It Go"). The digital pre-order of the core game comes with the Mix packs that add additional mixes to core songs. The digital deluxe comes with ALL of the DLC, including "Let It Go." "Let It Go" is not available for purchase individually yet. That make sense?

Yup, kind of figured this out after the fact.

When will let it go be up for purchase individually and how much are individual tracks going to cost?

Ah, didn't know you were talking about the song "let it go"

Have you finished the initial tutorial? My digital deluxe came with let it go, but I know the $60 had it too. you can see the game and what dlc is downloaded if you go to your my games and apps, find fantasia, and pressing the (right start button?) you can click manage game.

One thing to note is while I have all the dlc, the game is not letting me play any of it either. I'm not sure if this is because I have to play through the whole tutorial (it is long :(((( or if it's a glitch. I'm assuming it's the former.

Alright. I'm going to try to make the OT, but it's going to take me a bit to do it right. I will get it up today though.

OT title suggestions are welcome.

Heads up, Nicholas: picked the game up just now on X1 at the Gamestop I work at. The 3 pre-order songs didn't show up on the receipt, nor in the case and the manager could not find a back-up code nor any mention of one in the emails.

Suffice to say, can I get a PM?

Honestly, this is exactly what I was gonna recommend as well. Either that or "Fantasia: Music Evolved |OT|: I Put My Hands Up, They're Playing My Song"

Ah dammit, I just a scrub-tactic OT for this because there wasn't one. We can get with mods to combine/delete when yours is ready. Sorry about that.

That's all I got. Likely too obscure, but oh well. :p

My disc arrives in the mail today. Woo! :D

What's the deal with buying digitally on the 360? Why is there no deluxe bundle option there? Hoping it shows up at some point today or soon after, really disappointing if it doesn't. Not sure why that would need to be exclusive to the X1.
I see the 360 version now has Rock/Dance/Pop expansion packs up, but still no song DLC - either standalone or via a digital deluxe version. Are we going to have to wait and buy the DLC songs as they release for the 360 version instead of being able to get them all now?

Got my copy in the mail (Xbox 360 from Best Buy Canada). Codes in the case. Crappy eco-case broke and my disc was loose/wobbly. Those things are the absolutely worst. Was able to redeem my code. Expansion packs on the store, but as others note, no DLC in the store.

Still struggling to get a feel for the calibration/timing, but hitting ~95% on most tracks so far (admittedly not very far it) so it's not the worst thing... just have to try and read which instrument may be picked for a given beat matching sequence which is tough on a first play.

Surprised at how quickly the difficulty ramps up relative to the demo -- I think there's going to be a lot more meat here than I (or the public at large) expected... kudos. Presentation is great. Framerate in some spots really dips (not during gameplay but it can make some of the realm interaction muddy) and load times are killer. I just installed it to hopefully help w/ the latter.

So far, I regret nothing, except that we never got Rocket Man in RB3. ;)

Seems like a fair bunch of people on the Harmonix forum also did not receive a code with their game, not sure what the requirements were on receiving that.

As I understood it, the three DLC codes should have been packed in the retail box. They wouldn't be on a receipt or packed separately.

Basically, any first run disc copy should have them.

The promo sticker is even on the official box art image that Harmonix sent out. In reality, that little silver square is a sticker on the outer plastic.

Hmm, so I should bug best buy canada then? It's definitely not in the box and they haven't sent me anything.

Nope, as the picture I posted last night, at least that wasn't the case with my fresh copy

Played the demo. Was pretty decent. Didn't do anything in terms of making me want to buy the game though.

Bought it today and after around 90 minutes of playtime it's one of my favorite rhythm based games next to Child of Eden and Dance Central, great job Harmonix!!!
