Meh. Harmonix is doomed--they'll never develop a property which will hit 1% of the sales of the least popular Rock Band title or Dance Central. Dance Central might keep them going but reviving RB for the new generation of consoles may be very difficult.

I hope not.... we really need this dev and game type to stay relevant. Family/friend local gaming is important to the survival rate of the next gen consoles, and gaming in general. Even the lonely PS4.

There are several family friendly games already and I'm sure that the list will continue to grow, but Harmonix is trying to stick to music-oriented gaming and the ideas that they're coming up with are pretty lame. They had to resort of crowdfunding the development of a few titles. If they don't branch out into non-music titles they may not make it.

I'm having fun with it. at first, I had flashbacks to my first time playing DDR where I'm trying to time my footsteps with the onscreen prompts. but then once realize to just follow the beat, your feet will hit the prompts without even trying. that's what it was with fantasia. at first I was like, "do I swing now? how about now?"

It's still hard on the chaotic songs. But I think that comes to repeated play on the song to know the sequence (like learning a Guitar Hero song).

The changing of the song is pretty cool too...

To be fair, they're probably sticking to the music oriented genre because they have years and years of experience in it. I mean, if you're a heart surgeon for decades, you can't just suddenly switch to neurosurgery because it's more profitable. You generally have to stick to what you know. But yes, financially they're in a whole lot of trouble.
