Like some of the other guys/girls here, I'll be picking up RB and GH3 although at this point I'm more interested in GH3. It's the songlist and GH3's abundance of one and RB's lack of one. I understand that, for whatever reason, EA wants to keep the songlist a secret but I think it's hurting them right now. Especially after Activision dropped the Iron Maiden/Dragonforce combo yesterday. Yeah, not everyone here likes either band but they're HUGE selling points right now. I went to two EB Games and a Best Buy yesterday to talk to a few friends who work there and lots of people have been coming in and asking about GH3 because of the new songlist. RB, not so much. It's this kind of attitude that keeps Microsoft and Sony popular and Nintendo not so much. Nintendo is notorious about keeping their bigger titles under wraps until almost go time and by that point, no one cares. Smash Bros. Brawl is the perfect example. When I first heard about it, I was estatic. Then Nintendo didn't say anything about it for the longest time. Now they're finally releasing tidbits about it but I don't care anymore. I'm at the point now where I'm debating even buying the game. I haven't reached that point with RB yet but if I don't hear any songlist news soon, it's a high possibility.
And this is a little off-topic but I don't want to see a RB sequel until they figured out how to do an eight-player, two-band rock-off.
With the short confirmed list (almost all being Master tracks) that has been announced, I'm not the least bit worried or concerned. I'll be looking for your post a couple of weeks to a month from now saying "OMG RB's song list is sooo much better". I have faith in Harmonix. They don't need a shameless ploy to take the attention off of another game unlike Nevercrotch and Craptivision.

Here's an idea. Buy both. Support both. Enjoy both. I hate these console wars - I support them all (though I only have 360 and Wii I'm not made of money, and I have a tiny bit of hate for Sony after ruining the PlayStation brand but this sort of debate is more suited to an Xbox forum). So just support both Harmonix and Neversoft, two accomplished developers. and support Activision and EA (well the "support" and "ea" was hard to say in a sentance but they've been doing good recently).
So.. Bring on GH3 AND Rock Band is all i can say...
