Don't worry mods, no links etc in this post...

So, everyone knows that Rock Band 3 has no more DLC. That sucks and I was slowly coming to grips with that when I noticed on another forum something about being able to play a bunch of new songs in Rock Band 3. I was very intrigued, but I had heard of this kind of thing before and thought that, oh you need a modded Xbox and all that jazz.....well I was wrong! As long as you have the original version of Rock Band 3 (the MTV Games/EA published version, not the MadCatz version that is sold now) you don't need a modded console at all! You see, the 1.5 version of Rock Band 3 (the one that is included in the Games on Demand version and the Madcatz version of the game) removes custom support. You need the 1.4 patch and you can only get that if you have the original game, which is now rather hard to find.

Anyway, I now have ALL the Beatles Rock Band songs exported to Rock Band 3, as well as many of the Guitar Hero exclusive songs! I also added back Any Way You Want It by Journey into Rock Band 3. I also now have RB3 versions of a couple songs that desperately needed keys support (Carry on Wayward Son and Foreplay/Long Time). There is also a group dedicated to releasing new tracks for the game with full Rb3 support (keys, harmonies) and all difficulties included every Friday. They even produce video preview videos like Harmonix used to do. You can find them and their website easy enough (Google, YouTube). Oh they also have a certain HMX employee helping them. HMX are actually big fans of the project...lol.

They have been releasing stuff ever since DLC ended in Early April and it's incredible stuff, charted really well and done professionally with album art and correct info etc....just like a RBN track, in fact that is what RB3 thinks the custom songs are....RBN tracks. Anyone that felt like they took a punch to the gut when DLC was ended should check it out! I am sooooooo glad I did.....now, I have to get back to Stairway To Heaven....there was a Led Zeppelin 6-Pack released a couple weeks ago.   icon_cool

Oh and just to be clear....this only works on the Xbox. It does not work on the PS3, yet. There are people that have been trying hard to get it to work though. Who knows if it ever will though.

Yeah, I got really lucky and found one at EB used....since I sold my original copy when the game on demand version came out and was on sale for $10.

Then I find out about all this awesome custom goodness.....   crybaby

So I freaked out and started scouring my local EB's for a copy and luckily found one that had it. I felt like I had hit the winning numbers on Powerball or something.

Oh and I am now a playtester for these new song releases, which means that I know quite a bit about what is coming up....and if you think the stuff released so far is cool, just wait until you see what is on tap for the rest of the summer!   icon_cool

Many songs that I never thought would ever be in Rock Band, are on their way. It's incredible.

How do you spot the difference?  What's on the box that I can look for?

The back of the box will have the MTV games and EA logo on the bottom right, just above the UPC code.

Unfortunately not. frown  Nobody has found a way to get this to work on the PS3.

I believe there is a way for it to work on the Wii though, believe it or not. Someone has been taking the weekly custom releases and converting them to work on the Wii. I have no idea how you get them to work on the Wii, however, or if you need to mod your console or not.

All I know is that if you have an Xbox and the old version of RB3, there are no mods needed at all.

No problem. I am sorry that it doesn't work on the PS3, as of now. Believe me, I really wish it did. There are some people that are trying to get it to work, but so far they have not had any success.....well I shouldn't say any success, but nothing groundbreaking. It should theoretically be possible, so it may work someday.

Oh and another thing for everyone to know, none of this works on RB Blitz. It already has the 1.5 patch that blocks customs applied to it.....so the game will see the tracks, but if you try and play them in the game, you will get a "dirty disc" error (which is funny, since the game doesn't even come on a disc!) and the game will quit. The same thing happens in RB3 if you try and play customs with the Mad Catz version of the game.

Do PS3 instruments work with the xbox?  I'd be willing to dig my xbox out just to get custom songs working but I cannot see going and buying a bunch of new instruments.

I don't think they do, unfortunately.
