    It's a shame that these things happen when developers try hard to get a good system on the Wii and it fails. I've never tried it myself but it sounds like a pretty good system they had there.

    I guess if there was such a small demand...it's not a huge loss.

    Still kinda sucks though, if people ever used it.

    In the end it makes sense, if only a small amount of people are using this out of alot more people, it's pointless effort maintaining a server that's not really flying, and it's hard to please everyone...

    This is one of the reasons I hate additional online content and features; they can shut them down whenever they want. Say what you want about past generation games; at least they were nice and self-contained on their media.

    These kind of things will happen more and more as we shift towards full digital distribution, whether you're talking about gaming or movies & television. You think content providers are pushing for it 'cuz it benefits the consumer? They're doing it because it gives them much more control over exactly how and when you can use the content that you paid for, and should be free to use however you wish.

    I'm guessing that was the big problem. I guess not a lot of people like indie music. The novelty music was funny, though.
    If they released more famous or popular stuff, more people might buy.
    I did hate the pro drums screw up, too. The few RBN songs I DLed had all the yellow, blue, and green as cymbals.

    i actually didn't know what rbn really was. from the brief messages in the game like "upload your own songs to the rbn" i assumed it was just crappy user submitted charts or crappy garage bands, so i never looked into it.

    if i had known some indie bands i liked were in it i would of been on it from the beginning. anyway, i think they should of been clearer.
