As per the title, what hardware do you play RB3 on & why? For me I play on XBOX 360 & I wouldnt pick any other console tbh. Ive had no luck with PS3, & WII Ive only ever played GHWoR on it. I personally love the hard drive space for X360 & I also love the accessibility of getting the accessories such as Guitars, Pro-Drums & Mics, although Drums are usually very hard to come by as of recently, I only ever find regular stand alone RB Drums without Pro attachments. Though I enjoy WII for the titles it offers & PS3 for graphics & controller, but after switching to PS4 is probably a big reason why I havent switched to RB4, I tried but having to rebuy all DLC Ive already bought is a real shame. Good thing I have several back up X360 hard drives with music on them.

Xbox 360. I was on WII for Rock Band 1, 2, and 3 but wanted to play Rock Band 4 so I had to get a new console in order to do so. When I learned that the DLC was console specific I decided that I would be Xbox for the foreseeable future. This way I can keep adding to my collection of songs through the Rock Band series instead of starting over every time when switching consoles. Not to mention I am a PC guy so it just made sense to keep everything within the Microsoft family. I re-bought RB3 to add those songs to my account and use them in RB4. Realizing I wanted to do customs as well, I purchased an Xbox 360 and the rest is history =)


Other hardware is......Alesis Command drum kit with midi pro adapter and all guitars modified with custom strum bars.

PS3, never owned an Xbox, but you are also about to play online very easily with it. The only limits are a couple songs that people didn't chose the correct audio settings for, most have been fixed, but there is a few that are just kaputt forever. Also helps that i have the really early version of PS3 that makes hacking it way easier.

I beat Roundabout on Keyboard Once, that means I am good right?
Also if you pro keys 2 hands, you a cheater, just saying.

I've always been on a JTAG Xbox360, I even bought a spare in case this one dies.  2TB external harddrive storing all games and database.  I simply FTP into my console to upload new customs.

I have some self modded guitars I play on - things like auto whammy, overdrive activation button, wired all my fret buttons individually, things like that.  In the process of building a real hard wood guitar to play on.


Oh and I can't do without my 81 inch TV to play on in the Mancave!!

XBox 360.  It's where I started with Rock Band, so naturally it's where I started with customs.
