    Sad to see the series go. Had every single one of them. But he said for now. So another music game?

    While it's time has passed, Rock Band 1,2,3 Lego and Beatles all provided great moments, whatever your feelings on music games, nothing feels quite like the joy of getting a band together, playing and singing ( badly ) at the top of your lungs to some cheesy rock ballad.

    My favourite moment though, is playing Here Comes The Sun on Beatles Rock Band, felt wonderfully warm and good.

    Never played it , only because you had to buy instruments which would be used a couple times then ditched .

    Three of my mates got together one New Year's Eve and jammed out to this. Gosh, that was four years again, at least. I did vocals, because it was the easiest, and I killed it. Other than that my experiences with the series has been sparse.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Not a bad farewell to the franchise at all. At least they never did what Guitar Hero, which utterly destroyed the franchise.

    This depresses me. One of my favorite games to play, especially with friends. Is DLC completely discontinued? Or is it just weekly? Because I know this is the last weekly DLC. I want to see Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. >_>

    my favourite music game series is DJ Hero. I was annoyed they only made two. As that series was still fresh just because they ruined Guitar Hero they cancelled DJ Hero too. I guess it didnt sell well but what do you expect when you sell it for 100. I only got it because I found it half price. I got really good at the DJ Hero games and was hoping they made another but ah well.

    Anyway that was kinda off topic... I never played Rock Band

    Damn. It's been one hell of a ride, and hell, almost a career.

    Here's to you Harmonix, thanks for the friends and memories made.

    Rockband Network will still be going (Aka you make your own music, you apply the notes, then you upload it to rockband), but Harmonix-Made DLC is dead.

    They got funding for three games in the works, None rockband related, but people that played them said it blown them away in how they worked.

    You should be happy that there won't be an argument for once.

    Well, shooting yourself sounds like the obvious option right now, but I'd advice to listen to American Pie instead.

    i've always liked rockband better than guitar hero. besides guitar hero went way overboard with games and ruined the franchise. yes rockband made a few games but they made it very easy to carry over your tracks from side games into the main rockband game. i've recently got the beatles and green day rockband songs into my rockband 3 along with several track packs like metal and classic rock for super CHEAP. i'm very excited to see what they do next gen

    Beatles: Rock Band was my first game for the PS3, and it's still one of the best things to play if you have a few people together. I played it last weekend, actually. There is always a long break for me between plays though so my guitar batteries are always dead.

    I only played them a few times at friends' houses since the instruments were expensive and I've never really liked American music games.
    Fun games though, just not my kinda game.
