Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed that I didn't get accepted too. I've been a fan of Harmonix since 2006 and it's been a big dream to work for them. This would have been the closest I could have got to doing that :/

I won't lie, I'm still hurt about not being accepted. Even though I told myself I didn't care, I do care.

So the feeling of rejection sucks.

But I'm not upset or mad or in any way resenting those that did get in. Why? It's not your fault!
Enjoy and make sure to share with the not so lucky. Maybe those that did get in should do an AMA kind of thing so we can get all the pending questions answered prior to release.


Yeah I'm with Nemo here. I kept telling myself "don't get your hopes up" so I tried not to, and then the rejection letter came in and I felt a little bad about it. This isn't the first time I've been rejected for something that I cared so much about either, but it's still a bummer. The big thing about it for me was going into RB4 my ION kit won't work and drums are my main instrument. So without the band in a box bundle, I am unable to play drums. And now with the Canadian dollar so bad it's really hard for me to be able to pay $300 plus tax for the bundle. I guess I might just buy the single game disc and if I can find a separate drumset down the line that would be great. But please, road crew members, SHARE EVERYTHING YOU CAN WITH US!! We would love to hear how you guys feel about the game! :)

Congrats to everyone who got in. :)

As a PSA to those Canadians that didn't, the bundle is currently CAD$250 at the Microsoft Store, w/ a $20 Xbox gift card.

I put an order in so I can hopefully axe my Best Buy one. :)

Any of the lucky few who got in want to do me a favor when you get your early copy of the game? Nothing that will get you in trouble with HMX and will only take 30-45 minutes of your time. Shoot me a PM if you wanna help me out. Thanks.

So no one else has gotten an email regarding the band-in-a-box, right? Not just me?

That's really odd they haven't emailed you guys at all regarding that. The game is a week and a half away from release. I wonder HOW early you guys will actually get the game?

Well, now they've said they are "on the way from the fulfillment center," though it is unclear where they are in the shipping process or how they will be shipped.  I guess we'll see them when we see them!

Apparently. Wherever you saw that from, so much for the message they were gonna send about it, I guess.

EDIT: Found it on their Twitter. Well, hopefully.means they're arriving early this week, then.

Yeah, their communication up to this point has been, lets say, less than stellar....

 

On Twitter, HMX Thrasher is now saying that the bundles are arriving....but nobody seems to have received them yet. It would be helpful if they communicated with us directly about the shipping situation, instead of the random vague tweets that they seem to be doing.

 

Oh well. I guess I can't complain too much, since I am getting something that is normally $250, for free.

People have been able to find and track their orders (somehow, I've been completely unable thus far), and apparently the bundle and some secret 5lb package will arrive by Friday. Some are saying 8 PM, which would be a shame for me; I was hoping to have my bundle ready for my library's game night.

Yep, I finally was able to track my order yesterday using FedEx Delivery Manager. It looks like the 5lb package is an extra Guitar! The dimensions were updated on the package and it fits a guitar. :)

 

Pretty nice of them to include an extra guitar! :)

5 pound guitar though? That seems a bit heavy for the regular plastic one, doesn't it?

 

Also, we hate you all a little bit more now.

Thats what I thought at first, but the PAX East guitars that people could order are 4.7lbs, so it fits.
