Rock Band 4 PC Crowdfunding

Following a recent Harmonix post about the viability of rhythm gaming on the PC, they have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Fig to bring Rock Band 4 and the Rock Band Network to Windows (thanks Doug). They explain this will be a port, which will allow their core engineering team to support them and continue their work refining the game, and their initial goal is $1.5 million. Here's more on their proposal:

The PC version of Rock Band 4 will have ALL the same content and features as the console versions currently do:

  • World Tour Campaign Mode
  • Freestyle Guitar Solos
  • 65 songs included "out of the box" - and you can get up to 33 additional songs if you back us here on Fig!
  • 1700+ additional playable songs available as downloadable content
  • Supporting wireless guitar controller, drum kit and next generation microphone
  • For more information, full song list and complete specifications, please visit http://www.rockband4.com

In addition:

  • Tools to author your own songs for play in the PC version of Rock Band 4 - submit them to Rock Band Network via Steam Workshop and share with the rest of the Rock Band 4 PC community!
  • Mouse and computer keyboard support for menu navigation
  • All feature and content updates from the console game. Rock Band 4 on the PC will have all of the updates released prior to its launch, and will continue to be updated alongside the console versions moving forward.

I have backed 10 different projects over the last few years. Nine of them are done, 1 is almost done and I would donate to all of them again. So if we are going to go by individual experience rather than looking at the overall big picture how do we settle it? Who has the more valid point of view? I mean, you only backed 5, I backed 10. Does my quantity give me the "right" point of view?
Well I've backed almost 200 projects, so my opinion must be worth 20 times yours!
Basically, from the KS study they put on their website, about 9% don't deliver. If you can't afford to lose the money you back with. Personally most of the projects I back I do at something around a $10 level.

The vast majority of KS's I've backed are late, some YEARS late. But most have delivered (even if they've cost their creator significantly more than he got on the project).
The few that haven't, oh well. Such is life, I haven't put a significant amount into those.

(Yes I realize I'm cutting your quote off, to make a point )

Fig though... ugh. Why didn't they use KS?
