here's a question, and sorry if it's been asked already

on November 20th, we will be able to buy the bundle (1 guitar, drums, mic, game) or the stand alone game

you won't be able to buy individual instruments until february according to gamestop.com.

How exactly do we get ahold of a second guitar this year?

depends on version of the song they get but yeah the following are really the only lyrics:
"TIMMAH!"
"livivuivah TIMMAH!"
"and the looords of the the underworld!"
"And my heart is filled with pain and darkness."

War Pigs has been over played. I would love to get Sabbath’s Fairies wear Boots. The drum solo in it would be a blast to play!

If you haven't preordered, you could have a hard time getting this game. Apparently the publisher has contacted EBgames, Gamestops, and Gamecrazys and who knows who else to shut down preorders because of limited supply. I procrastinated and tried to preorder at all three (online too) and no dice for the bundle.

Amazon is doing preorders for $249. No thanks. Looks like i'll be standing in line with Kess.

I'll be firing up the coffee maker at about 7 am. You bring the dough-nuts. Or is that just a Canadian thing in the morning? Free health care allows us a little less worry about such things, maybe.

All kidding aside, I think this is gonna be a tricky call trying to guess when the line-up is going to start, or if it'll even start at all. Like I've said, GH3 had at least 300 in line at the BB, for all the systems....with only PS2 versions left over. It just sucks that there's such a limited release of such things....especially so close to Christmas. GH3 is still not available where I am....and maybe not again before the holidays.

I think I'm most anxious to get Rockband because it's really the only PS3 game you can plug in and play with a bunch of friends. And have a tonne of fun with. The concept is simple, and almost everybody can get through a song on easy the first or second time. Then again, it's actually often funnier in a group situation when people screw up! If my copy of GH3 is any indication, Rockband is going to be a HUGE hit for me and my friends. And even more importantly, to my wife and her friends!

Yes, it's RF which means radio frequency, which means that the signal should go through your wall barring that they are not concrete and your guitar is within fairly close proximity to your PS3.

40gig PS3 owners will need to buy a USB hub if they want more than 2 instruments going. Only 2 USB ports on the unit.

That Metallica pack is SICK, gotta be hard as hell too, and still more to be announced. I don't have a preorder, call around tomorrow to see if i can get one, probably won't. Most likely will be standing in line, but that should be pretty short at my stores.

HMX told all the gamestops and ebgames to stop taking preorders. I'd try big box stores with pre order programs.

newegg is still taking preorders. So i've hedged my bet and went ahead and preordered but plan on showing up at GS if they do a midnight release. I should have a good chance considering most of the preorders are for the 360 version.

OMFG..... THANK YOU, they went right to the classics.

Quote:
The Police Pack
"Can't Stand Losing You"--The Police
"Synchronicity II"--The Police
"Roxanne"--The Police

Another winner, but Roxanne is a lousy selection....there are better police songs for sure with better guitar parts.

Quote:
Week of November 27, 2007
David Bowie Pack
"Moonage Daydream"--David Bowie
"Heroes" as made famous by David Bowie *
"Queen Bitch" as made famous by David Bowie *

Odd selections here.......personally I want Look Back In Anger, a more rocking tune with both challenging guitar and drum parts (particularly drums, will require constant cymbol playing). Heroes is the real "huh?" entry...

Quote:
Week of December 4, 2007
Black Sabbath Pack
"N.I.B." as made famous by Black Sabbath *
"Sweet Leaf" as made famous by Black Sabbath *
"War Pigs" as made famous by Black Sabbath *

As good as the Metallica Pack...although War Pigs is a double-dip from GH2.

This, frankly, sucks. Lousy Ramones tune, lousy Clash tune.....

well the great thing is if you don't like certian songs you don't have to buy them. Plus there's the DLC albums which haven't been detailed yet.
