I feel the game is gonna go the way of Katamari. It's a good game but it's being worn out at this point, and another game is already coming in the fall. If they don't change the gameplay how long are people willing to pay for the same game with new songs?


Unless 3 contains some great stuff, I probably won't be getting it. Maybe Guitar Villian (if it is a metal version and actually exists) but if 3 is the same rather lame tracks ("Surrender"? Give me a break...) as 2 that are all covers, count me out. Unless Dragonforce (not a cover) is there.


They have to cover all the songs because of copyright issues. And many other famous bands that you'd imagine would be in there likely arent because they don't want to be. An example is ACDC.  They include a wide variety of songs to satisfy everyone. You're not the center of their fan base.

There are no copyright issues. It's called 'royalties' and I know it doesn't warrant such a high price.

Haha. I was replying to him and not commenting on the price.
I agree that the price is a bit high. Whilst it's not high enough that no one will buy it, it certainly isn't respectable. 50 cents less per song and I'd probably buy it.

Oops. My bad. Anyway hopefully they drop them down to Itune types of prices.

Mmm. Imagine that. A vast list of downloading songs the size of the whole iTunes downloadable library at the price of 1 dollar. That'd be fantastic.

They don't have to use cover songs. They are too cheap to use real ones. Which in my eyes is BS.
