Hey guys, still haven't had a chance to play Rock Band 3, because I've been so busy with my job. I won't have a chance to play it till next Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it. I've been playing Rock Band 2 for years now, but this'll be my first time playing Rock Band 3. I can't wait to start assigning 1 star rattings to a number of songs in my collection. Won't have to play those songs ever again.
Oh, and I'm also excited to play with all of the new songs too.
I own only 1 guitar. Its the Rock Band 2 guitar that came with the Rock Band 2 Special Edition. I was thinking about buying another Rock Band 2 guitar, but there seems to be only a few left on ebay. And I'd rather not pay the amounts they're asking for there. So I was thinking of getting a Rock Band 3 Wireless Fender Stratocaster Guitar. I'll either get the red or blue one; ithe color doesn't make much difference to me.
But there seems to be a shortage of these guitars, almost as bad as the Rock Band 2 guitar shortage. I can get a new Rock Band 3 guitar for about $100. Is that a good deal, considering that they were selling for $60, before they went out of stock everywhere? I can't find any at a brick and mortar store. The nearest GameStop that has one is 75 miles away from my house. I'm not driving that far to save $40.
So is Madcatz not making anymore Rock Band 3 Playstation 3 guitars? Because I see plenty of Rock Band 3 Xbox 360
guitars online, for reasonable prices. Is Madcatz going to make more Playstation 3 Rock Band 3 guitars? Or have they decided to only make them for the 360? The Playstation 3 Rock Band 3 community of players can't be that small that there's no more profit in making guitars.
I should point out that I want to buy a Rock Band 3 Playstation 3 guitar. I absolutely do not want to buy the Pro version of the guitar and I don't want to buy the Bass version of the guitar.
Oddly enough the Rock Band 1 guitar is readily available, for only $22. Under the Amazon listings for the Rock Band 2 and Rock Band 3 Playstation guitars, both are listed as discontinued by the manufacturer. (Thus answering my own question 2 paragraphs above.
) Yet magically, MadCatz continues to produce brand new Xbox 360 Rock Band 3 guitars.
I don't understand this at all.
What are everyone's impressions on the Rock Band 1 guitars vs. Rock Band 2 guitars. And what are your experiences with the Rock Band 3 guitars vs. the Rock Band 2 guitars. I've only played with the Rock Band 2 guitar.
I'm worried about the future of Rock Band DLC on Playstation 3. Specifically, I'm worried that Harmonix will eventually only release new DLC on the 360 and just abandon the PS3 altogether. I mean, why would they continue releasing DLC for a console that no one can even buy instruments for. Eventually, all of our Rock Band instruments will break down and fail. Harmonix and MadCatz must really hate Sony and the PS3.
