The only problem for me is that, well, learning to queue fog is really easy. Much easier than learning the Rock Band conventions, correctly charting notes, etc. (FogOn and FogOff?) A reviewer could easily look at the venue events and tell if the fog was charted wrong.
And there'll be reviewers with stage kits for sure, same with how some will specialize in vocals, drums, and how some may have only one instrument, or two.
I mean it's not like a huge deal or anything, but it's something I think should be implemented.
I'm very much looking forward to getting "select" songs... but I'm more excited about the idea that this concept could go completely universal. Are the hang-ups about adding a full-fledged RBN store to PS3 on the logistical side (as far as being unable to deliver that much content), economic side (who handles payments of artists, etc.), or just general hesitance (not 100% behind the idea)?
I apologize if you can't divulge that information, but as a PS3 RBer, I'm clamoring for any info I can get.
Though HMXSean has said they do want to get it on all platforms. Who knows when or if that will happen though?

Man, this entire thing is awesome yet confusing.
I'm new here, but I signed up not only because of my love for the game, but because of the opportunity to bring in unsigned bands I know and love to this game! I believe they deserve much more recognition, and this game will definitely help out with that.
Anyways, I want to clarify on something. I have bands from, let's say, japan. They're known as "doujin bands". I'm going to contact them, but first I must know and clarify, can they submit the song themselves with all of the info and such to you directly, or do I have to do so myself (or a friend that lives in the US)? I do not have the time to chart their songs unfortunately, but I really don't want that to be the main factor and reason why they can't be in the game. Outside sources tell me that HMX can chart it themselves.
I don't believe Harmonix will be charting Network songs, but folks from Harmonix certainly will be (for their own bands).
