Wait, it's not in 3D? Harmonix totally missed their chance here. When Sony requires 3D in future games, they'll have to bring it in for Rock Band 4, and then it'll just be awkward. RB43D? Sounds like a bad license plate.

Just those alone is enough for me to buy the game.
I am disappointed that you cant use any MIDI keyboard on the game though. It would be sweet to bust out our full sized keyboard for this.
I've been waiting for them to come out with a string based guitar. I'll definitely buy it if i can afford it. So when they say "fully functional guitar" do they mean that it functions like a real guitar or that I can actually plug into a standard amp and play it? The latter would be sweet.
I'm very excited but there's definetly signs of the music genre being exhausted. I keep up every week with RB and GH dlc and there's a lot more overlap this time than last. Can't wait to start a new band over
Totally wrong. Games make everything more fun. I love to exercise, but Wii Fit makes doing 50 push ups 10x more fun than if I just dropped down in my room and started. I like playing the keyboard, and I know that if I were to get points for it and watch my avatar get applauded by screaming fans and I could play in a band online and all that good stuff I would play keyboard much more often than I do.
Why would it kill your excitement? Pro mode is optional. The core gameplay is still there...so you'll still have fun. Plus, you don't have to buy the new peripherals if you don't want to since the old guitars from Red Octane will still work for it like it always has.

I did not know this.
Can I import those songs into RB2? Do you think I'll be able to import it into RB3 with the added keyboard track?
Yeah, you can import all of the songs from LEGO Rock Band onto your Rock Band 2 library. The thing is, you have to get a new copy of the game since the export download code can only be used once. It doesn't work like with Rock Band 1's export. Still, it's on sale on the Rock Band Store for $20. It's well worth it at that price. As for the implementation of keyboard with existing tracks...that has yet to be revealed. My guess is probably not...but we'll see!
But music game sales have plummeted. Saying "hey, heres a much harder version!" will not pick up sales. Yes, you can play the same old guitar on easy with 84 new songs.....but that has been the case for the past 5 years. See DJ hero sales as an example.
Ok, maybe not retarded, but they're really going after a tiny market with that stuff. Having to buy a fake (well, MIDI) guitar to learn real guitar may prove a bit too much of an expense for most people, I think.
Keyboard is where it's at. It's been done perfectly, and I'm totally impressed with how well Harmonix have designed it. Most the other stuff is just common sense or shit other people have done, but the keyboard highway is downright genius.
Tracklist is good but not especially gripping, though with a new instrument to play with it'll be hard to judge the quality of some picks. But overall, I'm super hyped, just want to see more gameplay/nerdy specific shit (INDIVIDUAL HYPERSPEED SETTINGS)
