    Finally, not that I want to play piano, I just don't want to play piano parts while I'm supposed to be playing guitar parts. Saying that there has to be a real change in the way you play this time as I'm pretty much done with these games. If I do play a new rhythm title, it won't be Guitar Hero 6.

    Well, You're missing out, I prefer it over Guitar Hero based of the setlist and the amount of games, compared to Activision producing tons of "Heros" a year.

    On Topic:
    I can;t say Im to interested, Another instrument to take up space? Also, Not many bands with keyboardist, Does that mean if my friend wants to play Keyboard, I have to play those same songs over and over?
    At least with the original instruments you're all playing at the same time.

    Well I suppose it's a start to introduce more instruments. But I'm still waiting for Triangle Hero.

    Just another way to sell an overpriced accessory.

    And in agreement with Sstew, Activision's setlists have been incredibly shit starting with Guitar Hero 3 and all the way up to whatever iteration they're on now; anybody who prefers Guitar Hero is a fucking idiot who listens to terrible music.

    I bet it is gonna be another over-priced keyboard-liked peripheral like the turntable Activition has in DJ Hero.

    But whether it's a success or not is another thing. From what it looks seem promising to me though, provided that the cost is not equal to a new console.

    Won't get the piano accessory. I have one thing to say to EA and Harmonix though. GIVE US EUROPEAN GAMERS THE GOOD FUCKING INSTRUMENTS!!! PLEASE!!! I only have a decent set because I bought the Beatles Set (which is lovely by the way) but the standard is still the RB1 instruments here! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!
    Also, I don't even have RB2 yet and RB:Green Day is coming out soon with RB3 on the horizon! I was going to get Prince of Persia at some point as well... Bugger, it'll all just have to wait

    Finally!

    It will be awesome if they have Muse tracks or at least DLC in it.

    Plus, I can try to multitask with mic+keyboards. [​IMG]

    I agree with you on this one. People in the RB forums have been demanding more Muse since Hysteria came out as DLC. I'm wishing for either New Born, Time Is Running Out or Starlight to appear on the RB3 setlist. Also, with the addition of keyboards, it is now more likely that Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) and Light My Fire (The Doors) will appear as well. I'm just excited for this game [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Actually, I do prefer a lot of the Rock Band music, but I think with Guitar Hero and Band Hero the series has improved a lot. I love making setlists on my DS and playing them right away on the Wii. The ability to join in at any time with any instrument is great. I'm pretty sure Harmonix will completely crush the competition by the time Rock Band 3 releases, but for now I prefer Guitar Hero. I don't play the games the much anymore, so the setlists are good enough for me. Whichever one you prefer, both Guitar Hero and Rock Band always have a few good songs.

    I need to get RB2 but I am a big Green Day fan so want this as well. From what I understand you can port Green Day setlist over to RB2 anyway.
    Also I'm not asking for new instruments I'm asking for old instruments!! The RB2 sets are at least a year old now if not more so why don't us Europeans get them? Because they have too many RB1 kits and need some place to sell them off to. I'm sure instrument quality is the main reason GH does better over her (I know more people with GH than RB).
    I have RB1 and TB:RB so have a slight DLC built up though if I get kicked for not having much I swear I will kill something, not everybody has £300 they can plow into buying every song imaginable.

    Yeah you definitely need to upgrade to RB2 so you can take advantage of the ever-building library (if you ever consider downloading a lot of songs) because I heard RB1 can't handle a huge library. Plus, when RB3 comes out, you will have a code for exporting RB2 songs. And yes, Green Day tracks are exportable. A lot of people are going down the "get GRDB, export, sell" route but I'm actually keeping mine as I tried the demo and I liked the slightly upgraded interface.

    And I agree with the instruments bit! I've been to a lot of game stores around London, mostly GAME and HMV and I have yet to see a Rock Band 2 full band bundle box! To me, I don't really see RB2 instruments getting released over here but the Beatles guitars compensate for it...
