This past week saw the release of three tracks from the 2 Million Facebook “Likes” promotion, and for those keeping track at home, we are still awaiting the release of Stevie Wonder and Dream Theater DLC. Could this week see either (or both) of those artists? Lets find out!
UPDATE: Harmonix has acknowledged that they originally announced earlier this year that the eventual DLC counterpart of the Country Track Pack 2 would only have Rock Band 2 features, and at the time had no plans to release the DLC with Rock Band 3 features. With the DLC coming out on 11/8, it is clear that this is not the case, and the DLC will now include Rock Band 3 features (mainly adding Keys and Pro-Keys charts to 19 out of 21 of the songs). Because many of the early adopters feel slighted, @HMXHenry is attempting to “make good” by attempting to provide DLC codes to those who purchased the track pack. From RockBand.com:
We’re waiting on approval from Microsoft for several hundred codes for the 21 song Country Mega Pack of DLC. I’m hoping we receive these codes before the end of day tomorrow. When we have them in hand I’ll be PMing them to people that have posted about being early adopters of the Country Track Pack 2.
There’s no elegant way for us to track ownership in game (or making the connection between hundreds of in game scores to gamertags to email addresses to forum profiles) and licensing would prevent us from gifting this DLC pack to everyone that bought CTP2 even if there was a technical solution. But I know a lot of people on the forums, in this thread in particular, feel like we could have handled this release better so we wanted to do something.
There is no guarantee that everyone will get a code. It’s all on the honor system and it’s all based off of forum feedback in posts over the last week. Keep an eye on your inboxes, but I’ll post an update when I have codes in hand so we can try to get them to people before DLC goes on sale tomorrow.
