They made it clear online mode is 500,000 dollars away at the least and keys are not in their vision for the game.

How much you wanna bet they start a Kickstarter for additional features?

I don't see how it would cost a half million if they design the multiplayer so that peers connect to each other and elect one as the host.  Half a million sounds like long term server infrastructure for Harmonix to host all multiplayer matches.

Also what happen to all the money Harmonix made off of RB3 and it's DLCs? did they spend it on drugs and hookers? :P

Rock Band 3 made so much money that the sequel had to wait 5 years and had to be produced by a skeleton crew.

i can see Harmonix now, "Well we spent all the RB3 money and DLC money,oh sh*t, well might as well rush out a 4th game"

 

sound about right? i am not hating on them or anything, i love the heck out of the games they made.

Again, had they made a ton of money, RB4 would have been released 4 years ago. It's pretty much settled that Rock Band 3 did poorly, a financial statement by Mad Catz 4 years ago pointed straight to it. Harmonix went from being an MTV/EA partner to being an indie studio in a couple of years, you can infer from that how bad RB3 did.

What did they expect with little or no marketing in the UK and probably the rest of Europe.  Gamers in the UK didn't even know RB3 was out and unfortunately it seems RB4 is going the same way.

Good to hear! I miss a bunch of the songs, but I have a bunch of DLC so it's not like I'm struggling with playing the same few songs over and over.

 

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the voting system. It's a good way to rediscover songs I had and didn't play or played very little in favor of a band's big hit.

For those of you who might be throwing RB4 parties anytime soon and might be looking to make a booklet. If you're on the current version of C3 CON Tools you can already access the 65 RB4 on-disc songs, as well as the 4 Amazon pre-order songs, the 12 Xbox One pre-order songs and the 10 PlayStation Plus pre-order songs in Setlist Manager.

 

Remember you need to be in RB4 mode for these to be available -> Options -> Mode -> Rock Band 4. Then click on the Rock Band 4 menu that becomes visible and select what songs you want to add to your setlist.

 

There's an update coming out this weekend that'll also enable one-click add for the 30 pre-order songs, as soon as all 30 of them are available. I can't seem to find a few of them yet.

How hard could of it been to add a total number of songs owned when your browsing the setlist?  Also if you have a ton of songs and sorting by artist, going from A to Z takes quite some time to scroll.  It's like they looked at RB3's bevy of sorting options and said, "Lets go backwards and make this more difficult".  I don't even want to go through my library to see what songs I have installed that are not showing up in the setlist because it's probably quite a lot of songs.  Patch please.

it's hard enough for me in Rock Band 3 to scroll through the songs, because of the 1230 songs I have, it's also hard to pick what I want to play.

It would of been cool if they had Kinect support to search a song or artist  you want to play next.

Yes, being able to vocally call out a song to select would have been a tremendous add.  I completely understand why they didn't do this, though.

Has anyone been able to get all 30 of the pre-order bonus songs? I got my 12 Xbox exclusive songs, and I bought the 10 PS+ exclusive songs. Missing many of the 30 pre-order bonus songs and can't find the Amazon exclusives for sale...
