Rock Band 3 Will Charge to Use Keyboard and Harmony on Songs Already Owned

Rock Band 3 is a great game.  We say as much in our review.   Unfortunately, fans may be disappointed to hear that Harmonix  is taking a move right out of the Star Wars franchise playbook, in that they will be charging gamers again and again for the same content.  If you already own a song for Rock Band 2 you will need to purchase it again if you want to have the keyboard or vocal harmony portions.

Rock Band 3 Co-Op Review

Harmonix has long set atop the music game pecking order, and Rock Band 3 is another very strong effort. The gameplay we've enjoyed for years is as good as ever, and arguably the best it has ever been. But the inclusion of an entirely new instrument and Pro mode are Rock Band 3's true focus.

Rock Band Hits 2000 Songs, Plus Pro Mode Guitar Details

Guitar Hero may have just released a new title, but there's only one game on the minds of discerning music game fans this fall: Rock Band 3.  As the anticipation for the new Rock Band increases, the platform itself has reached a major milestone: as of next week, 2000 songs will be available to play in game, whether via game disc, export, or DLC.  The 2000th song, "Are You Experienced?" is from a real guitar hero: Jimi Hendrix.  I can't think of a better track to have such an honor.  You can download this track and the rest of the Are You Experienced? album on October 12.

Rock Band 3 Keyboard Gameplay, Plus Export Details

As Rock Band 3's late October release approaches, more and more details about the game are coming to light.  The keyboard instrument, new to the series, is perhaps the most intriguing.  A new trailer has been released, and a good bit of actual keyboard gameplay is shown off.  From the video, we see that on easy and medium difficulty, the note track looks very much like a guitar track, but on hard and expert, the track changes to look like that of the picture above.  While the lower two difficulty levels will only have a 10 note range, the tougher versions will require players to shift up and down the ivories often, more directly mimicing an actual keyboard playing experience.

Rock Band 3 Will "Re-energize and Reinvigorate" The Music Game Genre

USA Today has posted a story covering Rock Band 3, Harmonix's upcoming music game release.  As hinted in the Green Day Rock Band demo, keyboards are included, to the satisfaction of Liberace fans everywhere.  This will bring the upper limit for co-op to seven at a time: bass, guitar, lead vocals, two backup singers, a drummer, and a keyboardist.  Tickling the ivories has been a fan request ever since the original Rock Band, and as the next logical step for the genre, it's great to finally see it.
