So the offline game is gimped (no power ups) as well, AND offline progress doesn't count towards leaderboards or goals?
Yikes. That's...worse than I thought.
Does the game at least tell you that not being connected to Rock Central will impede gameplay?
I think that if you can't connect on startup, it DOES tell you that you can't use powerups or anything, though.
Just finished playing a song and was greeted with a message at the end saying that I was no longer connected to Rock Central. No coins or cred for me. Yay...
Happily discovering new music through the RBN since March 2010.
This is kinda annoying. I came back home, was excited to get playing, and it told me "Rock Central cannot be accessed". Okay, well, I guess I won't bother playing now. Bummer.

Such a bummer!
This situation remembers me of the madness Ubisoft delivered with their DRM plans... Such a trainwreck. Without CONTINUOUS internet connection, or if Rock Central servers are down (or unstable) you are left with gimped down version of the game. It's really a great offense to the consumer.

This is quite ridiculous not having a local save and fully functional offline mode. I've been disconnected 3 times already from Rock Central, I'm on PS3 and lost my song progress and cred each time. I also play on 2 different consoles in my house, so now I can't even switch and maintain star progress
