Or it might just be because it was Buckner & Garcia and people wasn't really looking forward to those for the most part of course.

As you can see, some thought does go into a genre balance for PS3. This is why it puzzles me a bit when we get feedback that "it's all metal" on PS3 RBN (an opinion that shows up routinely in the Blog and in Facebook responses as well as in the forums). Obviously, we haven't adequately educated some of our PS3 customers about the variety of songs available, but I'm not sure what further we can do to educate them. (Suggestions are welcome.)

Not to be rude, guys but I would be very much against a single artist week. I know a lot of people would like it but a lot of people would be pissed off by the lack of variety. Heck, if they released the rest of Rishloo's Feathergun tomorrow and we got a full week of them down the road, it would make me happy too but I wouldn't want a lot of others to be disappointed because of it.
TL;DR version: variety is good, keep things the way they are, no single artist weeks plz.

Did you really just TL;DR a one-paragraph post? Your lack of confidence in our attention spans is palpable
