Thanks all, apologies if this has been an ongoing discussion here. (I saw the other thread that was started up today also.)
I guess the thing is for me, and for I'm sure a few of yas, I've had the game since the morning of 09/09/09. I unlocked everything I could before we got our mitts on the rest of "Abbey Rd." (I'm not saying this to brag, by far: I'm only a medium level player, but I usually sing and play at the same time.) By any fair estimate, the game is old TO ME. But there's PLENTY folks, young and old, who just unwrapped this thing at the end of last month, who in the coming months will be hankering for more content.
If anything, Harmonix deserves a break-- besides who really wants to travel to Studio 2 in winter to procure safety copies of the 4 tracks?
If they decide it's too expensive (please don't HMX!) and don't want to do albums anymore, they should at least use the rights they've gotten to weed out the classic songs that haven't yet been released as DLC.
I can't imagine they just up and leave right now when "Hey Jude," "Help!," "Let It Be," "Strawberry Fields Forever," etc. are still left to be brought to the game.
Yeah but of those that you listed, only "Help!" is really a guitar song. Yes, I know, there's plenty non guitar stuff being "played" in B:RB but "Hey Jude" wouldn't even be that much fun!
There's plenty of guitar led tracks on their first five records that haven't seen their day in RB though. I do find the omission of "Help!" rather grievous as of right now, along with "Yesterday" "We Can Work It Out" and "Rain."
"Hey Jude" wouldn't be fun but "Yesterday" would? I don't get your logic there. They are both light on instrumentation. "Yesterday" doesn't even have drums. Getting away from that, I will purchase, play the hell out of and be absolutely ecstatic with every single song that comes out for this game.
they should at least say SOMETHING. Even a simple announcement saying that they don't know if more DLC is coming or that there is no more DLC would suffice. What on earth could possibly make them think than releasing 3 albums and then not saying a word about future DLC is a good idea?
