I could see Rock Band becoming its own console, but the instruments would still need to be separate.
For an early concept, I don't think it's a particularly bad idea. With some thought and real concepts applied to it, I think it could definitely work. Change isn't always bad.
That being said, BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY HO! As in "Thundercats HO!" Not calling you a ho.

I could see this working. Flash memory is getting bigger and bigger. Technology is getting smaller and smaller. Who is to say 20 years from now it wouldn't be possible to fit something more powerful than an Xbox 360 with more memory into a plastic instrument?
But things could get tricky for full band play. But anything is possible. If you got in a time machine and talked to me about rock band when I was a little kid I'd tell you you're crazy.
I mean, who is to say consoles as we know them will even exist 20 years from now? What if video game consoles themselves became built into other products?

Official word from HMX time? I wanna hear what either Henry, Veng, Sean, Thrasher, Johnlok, Dung Heaver, or any other HMX devs on the forums have to say bout this.

I doubt this would happen. Maybe in the next few years, they'll try to make the plastic instruments more realistic, but not too much.
Dreams are seldom what they seem.
There should be a mode where you actually play the song tabs with a real guitar along to the music and score points and overdrive etc. I could see the track scrolling sideways like vox with six horizontal lines in rows and the numbers scrolling to the left side of the scroll.

I dunno, they have such a good thing going right now. Maybe years down the line, but I'd rather not think so far ahead.
