I like the idea behind this whole 'Rock Band' thing.

If only Australia was cool enough to get these sort of games

RB2 is a franchise that Im excited about supporting, but it seems like the instruments are a mixed bag of luck. And we're not heavy users. We go in spurts, and only play them about once every couple weeks for extended sessions. Perhaps they lack some love.

Our RB guitar gave out a few weeks ago. The strum bar stopped responding to down strums, and you could only strum up.

While the 'feel' of the GH2 guitar was never great, it continues to work well with RB.

Our new wireless GH3 guitar works very well with RB, and I love the feel of it.

Our RB drum set has always had a springly clanky sound under one drum (yellow), so while I dont look forward to throwing cash away, Im looking forward to the new drum design. (softer pads and velocity sensitive). Yes, the current ones are too loud.

RB1 was great on 360. The drums are too loud when drumming on them but the new RB2 drums apparently fix this issue with softre drum pads

5. This is too full of awesome Jul 14, 2008, 16:11 MTechnik
 
+1 - That RB1 songs will move over
+1 - That the RB DLC will move over
+1 - That the new song list is full of awesome
+1 - That the game will have 500 songs on the platform by the end of the year.

So much better than what Guitar Hero has done.
(and yes, just a game purchase for me too, the RB1 drums work fine, and my GH3 wireless guitar works fine too)

(save for the GH2 axe - which sucks)

Mine works great!

My GH3 one works great, but the 2nd (green?) button on the white axe blows....

You got a great body, but your record collection sucks....
