Not that I don't have faith in Harmonix as a developer, but the Kinect interface is lacking in a number of ways: heavy input lag, accuracy (especially with high speed or subtle movement), a distinct lack of discrete and reliable controls, and tactile feedback. There's also an endurance issue of how long you expect people to stand in front of the camera doing things before fatigue sets in.
On the other hand, maybe whatever Microsoft has cooking on their new hardware will address at least some of these problems. I guess we'll know more whenever Harmonix decides to pull the tarp off whatever this project is.

I mean, yeah, personally I would love an integrated story and character writing in a music game; but I don't pretend it's in the community's interest.

Lissenup, all you RPG fanboys (& grrls). Everybody knows that nobody plays stupid rpg games with complex story lines (ME3) or time-consuming character development (WoW), or anything at all like that! The Math says so! (Karl?)
Rockband is about button-mashing, plain and simple (MW3?). Sure, sometimes it's the green button and sometimes it's the orange button (gasp!), but that's all the variety you're gonna get! This ain't the Sims! So quitcher whining and posting all them "helpful suggestions" lest you bring down the financial doom hammer on what's left of this once-proud franchise!
You have been warned!!!
