I know I mentioned it in that other thread, but I just find it fascinating how many people seem to interpret Rock Band as a $200+ minimum entry price.  If you've already got a Guitar Hero guitar for the 360, the hefty price tag investment for Rock Band is $60.  If you don't have a guitar, I can't see the RB Guitar+Game bundle being priced that different than the GH Guitar+Game bundle.  If you see the drums as a must-have peripheral, if they're around $80 then they're just $20 more than if you wanted to buy a 2nd X-Plorer for Guitar Hero.

I understand and agree with your points but if I can play RB using my GH guitar, and I'm already getting everything I want out of the GH series as far as my fake guitar needs are concerned, there's still little interest for me to pick up RB. Would be great to jam with others in a band capacity but it wouldn't take long for me to want to play drums or keyboard. I don't want to spend that dough for another rhythm title. Now if they offer four different bundles/SKUs with the game + one periph, then we might be in business. I could stomach an $80 bundle for the game + either the keyboard (most likely) or drums in addition to the GH guitar I already own.

There's no keyboard.  RB's got a microphone, lead guitar, bass guitar (same periph), and the drums.  As far as your fake guitar needs being met by GH, it's a matter of opinion for sure but for me I think that Rock Band has more to offer than GHIII--even if you take the microphone and drums out of the equation.  And I'm not sure if I'm reading you correctly, but it sounds like one of the negatives against RB in your mind is that if you played one instrument you'd like it so much you'd want to buy the others?  smile

To be clear, I'm not knocking your choice or plans; I'm just finding it really interesting to see how this RB vs. GH battle is progressing.

There's 1080p TVs available for the deal.  If I'm doing the math correctly, the 50" 1080p DLP TV would be about $1200.

As much as I adore Guitar Hero (and plan on buying GH3), the hefty price tag investment for Rock Band is keeping my interest level at next to zero.

It seems like Harmonix needs to spend some PR time convincing the pubic that each individual instrument campaign is comparable to the single player GH campaign, or maybe empasize the "put together a band" angle where each person may only have one instrument.

And what are you waiting for to judge not being able to hear vocals online?  Do you not trust the Harmonix rep they chose for the Q&A?

He's saying if it's just an option you can turn on and off, that's fine. If it's hard-coded that you can't hear the vocals (which I'm guessing is the case), then it blows.

I'd like to be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's the "it blows" situation. This doesn't seem to leave much room for interpretation: "When playing online with others, your bandmates cannot hear you sing; they can only watch your pitch and score on the screen to ensure you're keeping up to par."

I doubt online play will work well anyhow, unless you're playing with people in the same town.  Getting the ping times over 100ms will cause lag, lag will cause misses.  There's no way around it.

I would hold out judgment on not being able to hear vocals online.  If this is an option, it's a great option.  If it's not possible, it blows.

Even if people have bad pings, it's not like the note hits are going to be calculated on someone else's system; your ability to hit or miss your own notes is going to be the same as off-line play.  I can't see lag being a problem unless it gets so bad that the game has to pause to re-sync the systems or something.

And what are you waiting for to judge not being able to hear vocals online?  Do you not trust the Harmonix rep they chose for the Q&A?

Yes, the online singing might blow, but if this is true, $200 for all four instruments most certainly would not blow.   drool

Very much agreed, but I'm not going to get my hopes up; that was Gamespot talking, not the Harmonix rep.  Ok, maybe I'll get my hopes up just a little.

Here's the full quote on the singing:
Quote
GS: As we understand it, bandmates won't be able to hear the vocalist sing when playing online. Are there plans to add that functionality in the future?

DS: When playing online with others, your bandmates cannot hear you sing; they can only watch your pitch and score on the screen to ensure you're keeping up to par. I can't speak to future plans in this area at this time.

Does this mean that even the Live Headsets will be inoperable during the songs?  The lack of singing-over-IP is bad enough, but that's a big hit to the online fun if you can't even talk to each other during the songs.  If you can use the headsets, couldn't you just wear the headset at the same time you sing into the mic in order to get your singing transmitted?

Me confusded.  retard

A smattering of new info from Gamespot's Hardware Q&A

Confirmation that they're doing what they can to have compatibility with non-RB guitars
Confirmation that the 360 bundle will include a USB hub.
You can "speak" the cowbell/tambourine parts by yelling "pow!" but you won't look as cool.
You can plug regular 360 headsets into the drum or guitar.
And a sad one: When playing online, bandmates will not be able to hear you sing

And this is indeed part of the hypothetical.  Maybe I didn't word it well, but we're assuming that a $600 PS3 was never mentioned.  The above $400/$500 configuration with Home at launch and rumble always included would be all we'd ever have heard of.

That's taking a hypothetical too far IMO.

I suppose, but the various PR disasters are what brought us to this lineup in the real timeline November 2007.  The hypothetical is simply: what if this November 2007 lineup was the starting point.  As the starting point, it wouldn't have this past year's nightmare.

Take all the PS3 sales.  Reset them to zero.  Compare that to the current installed base of the 360 and Wii.

Look at BD sales.  Cut them in half (roughly).

Game. Over.

gellar

If we reset the PS3 sales to zero, they need to sell 4 million to catch up to where they are now.  Didn't it take all of one month for the Wii to hit 4 million sold?  If Sony was going into Christmas '07 with this configuration and with people excited about the PS3 instead of mocking it, I think they'd hit 4 million pretty fast.  Then again, $400 probably would've still been more than people could handle.

I wonder what would have happened if they cut out the blu-ray and offered it for $300/400, but getting into nested hypotheticals is probably excessive. smile

Quote from: Kevin Grey on September 19, 2007, 08:28:21 PM

Sony's reputation was tarnished the moment they announced $599.00.  It's not enough to say "what if they had waited a year."  You'd also have to say that they reversed all of their PR SNAFUs too.

gellar

I agree with Gellar.  Sony would be a in worst place if they delayed launch for a year

How so?  What have they gained these past 10 months other than a pathetic 4 million units and a heap of bad press?  With a November '07 launch, how long would it take for that same 4 million to buy the console at $100 less with more features, pack-ins, and available games?

Remember to erase this past year of horrible press from your memory in this hypothetical.  Sony would be going into this November with everyone still thinking of them as the console king because of the PS2.  Even last month, the PS2 only sold 70k fewer units than the 360 (and the PS3 sold 70k fewer units than the PS2).

Look at the sales for Madden in August.  640,000 sold for the PS2.  Combined with the 336k PS3 versions sold, you've got more people playing Madden on a Sony system than a Microsoft system.  And the 640k gives you an idea of how big the market is of people waiting to jump to the next gen--and they're playing on Sony systems.

Z: Also probably online, but could be wrong.
W: What are you basing this on?  And on another note, do we know if the elite/pleb difference is just the storage size or does the cross-character storage ability come with elite as well?

From what I know of, this WILL affect your SP gameplay as well. Less storage as well as no ability to trade items between your characters (without going online and getting a mule to hold it for you, anyway).

The impression I've gotten is that what Tim said is true.  No way to get your stuff to other characters other than mules or friends unless you subscribe. 

That's what I thought.  Ouch.  Just to make sure I've got my facts straight, did you have to buy the expansion to gain the shared storage space in Titan Quest, or did they patch it into the base game as well?
9259  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Hypothetical: What if Sony had waited for a November 2007 PS3 launch? on: September 19, 2007, 07:24:19 PM
Hearing about rumble being added back to the PS3 got me thinking about how many changes in price and configuration the PS3 has gone through before even its first birthday.  That got me thinking about how the PS3 would have fared if Sony had let the system simmer for another year and have all these changes and price drops happen before the PS3 hit stores.

You can already buy a 20GB for $450, there are those rumors floating around of a $400 configuration coming by the holidays, the 80GB now comes with a game, and just about everywhere you can find free blu-rays as an incentive to please please start buying PS3s.

So how do you think Sony would have done if they delayed the system yet another year?  Looking at the last 10 months, a November 2007 launch could offer:
  • Two SKUs at $400 40GB / $500 80GB
  • Rumble standard in all SIXAXIS controllers
  • Motorstorm packed in with the higher SKU
  • Spider-Man 3 blu-ray pack-in
  • 5 free blu-ray titles by mail with purchase
  • WiFi and Flash Reader standard on both SKUs
  • "Home" available at launch
.
Plus, there would some real heavy hitters in the launch title list:
  • Resistance
  • Call of Duty 3 (well, 4 as well I suppose)
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
  • Motorstorm
  • Oblivion
  • Warhawk
  • Heavenly Sword
  • Lair (well, we wouldn't yet know how bad it is)
  • many more
.
That's a damn impressive launch setup, but with that same exact list being offered in real life as a Launch +1 Year lineup with all these months of bad press I find myself still taking a wait and see attitude on how the PS3 progreses.

Sure, it'd be a disadvantage to be a year later than the Wii, and two whole years after the 360, but I can't help but think that with this stronger launch lineup, configuration, and pricing, it wouldn't take them long to surpass the paltry 4 million units they've sold so far.

I think with an initial launch this November, they would easily have more units sold by the end of 2008 than they will with their current timeline.  Their momentum through the coming years would certainly be a lot better than it currently is.  I know I personally would be more likely to buy a PS3 this Christmas in this hypothetical timeline.
9260  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hellgate: London - Elite or Pleb? on: September 19, 2007, 06:03:04 PM
One thing to remember is that single player doesn't necessarily mean offline only.  I never played Diablo 2 multiplayer, but I did play it online to get access to more difficulty levels. (and items? can't remember how it worked.)

Also, I'm not judging the quality of each feature, just trying to objectively look at what a subscription would do for a single player gamer.

-24/7 phone and internet support
Z: This affects single player, yes.  But, no where does it say that non-subscribers will not get ANY support.  It'll probably be business hours, et al.
W: Agreed.

- No (server) queues, with preference over non-paying customers
Z: Doesn't effect single-player (offline) at all
W: Agreed, but if there's a reason to play single player online, it would be an issue

- 3 chars per account for non-elites, 12 for elite-customers
Z: Again.  Probably only affects online play.
W: What are you basing this on?  Have they said anything about how many slots you get off-line vs. on-line? 

- Storage for up to 40 items (instead of 20 for non-subscribers), which can be accessed from any char in an account-wide item vault.
Z: Also probably online, but could be wrong.
W: What are you basing this on?  And on another note, do we know if the elite/pleb difference is just the storage size or does the cross-character storage ability come with elite as well?

- Visible distinction from other players. Elite subscribers are recognizable from their equipment and may trade subscriber-only equipment to other elite subscribers.
Z: Online, definitely.
W: If the visible distinction is "from their equipment," as they say, then it would affect your avatar customization choices in the single-player game, wouldn't it?

- VIP-Shuttles to remote areas
Z: Possibly affects single-player, but shouldn't be considered a deal breaker.
W: If it affects single player, the deal-breakerness would be open to interpretation, wouldn't it?  You wouldn't be grumpy if it took you an extra 5 minutes to get to North Haverbrook just because you elected not to pay $10 that month?

- Housing(?) and founding of guilds are enabled for subscribers. Elite subscribers may attain officer/leader privileges within their guild.
Z: Online only.  And as stated before, even Plebs can /join/ guilds.
W: I can see single-player people wanting to log online in order to have their own housing, even if they have no desire to group up with anyone

- Access to additional game modes, including Hardcore mode.  (More modes were already mentioned during my interview with Bill)
Z: This...not so sure about.  If there's an offline Hardcore mode, then yeah, this affects SP.
W: I can't be the only one who rolled online Diablo 2 characters to get the tougher difficulty levels even though I always played single player.


Did I miss an interview somewhere that explains what the divide is between the off-line and online modes is?  I could've sworn I remember hearing that you brought your same characters back and forth for both modes, but I could be mixing this up with another game.

Out of KD's list, the bolded Elite bullet points do affect the single player game, no?

- 3 chars per account for non-elites, 12 for elite-customers
- Storage for up to 40 items (instead of 20 for non-subscribers), which can be accessed from any char in an account-wide item vault.

Oh there was auto-translate at the start.  I have to say that some of the most fun I had with the game was with JP parties.  I originally rolled an Elvaan Thief, but only got to level 23 or so before grouping became a pain in the ass.  I rerolled as a White Mage Taru-Taru and had a blast up to 30 not having to worry about finding a group.  Unlocked the Bard job and enjoyed even easier group finding as a coveted BRD/WHM.  Once the JP folks saw "I can read hiragana!" in my description and discovered that I could do the two song Bard juggle, I had JP groups banging down their door for me.

Without the struggle for a group, that time in FFXI was one of my best ever MMO experiences.  Sadly, the groups dried up for some reason around level 56, and that's where the game died for me (after a brief very very fun stint as a Taru-Taru Samurai!)

Those JP groups though, man!  I got more XP with them in 30 minutes than I would in 2 hours in a good American group.  They were like a well oiled machines--I just couldn't believe how high they'd get those kill chains.  To be fair, they usually had a Ninja as a tank which wasn't really an affordable option for any American players at the time.  Their skill chain efficiency, though, was pretty amazing to watch.

The $13 figure for Japanese sales seems misleading, since it doesn't include the Wii Sports pack-in.  I'd be willing to bet that the number of Wii Sports sales tied to the console sales would put the Japanese margin pretty close to the $49 USA figure.

You should check out Kororinpa Marble Mania - it's very similar, and actually uses marbles smile
Looks pretty, but I think this is one of things that I can't help but be really picky and anal about.  I need a grid surface, end-over-end green tube creatures, moving acid pools, vacuum cleaners, and an evil black marble. smile

It's still a day 1 purchase, that would just irritate me if I get less songs because I don't know anyone else who plays.
Not planning to play it online?

I think they mean when you play through the game in Co-op mode, the encores unlocked will be different, I assume it will be an insentive to play Co-op mode. You will then get more songs you cant get by yourself.

That would be incredibly lame.  So those of us who don't happen to have any gaming friends get less songs?  Just another "brilliant" gameplay decision to go along with boss battles and power-ups. 

I think boss battles and power-ups are a horrible idea, but I actually like the idea of seperate co-op encores.  Then again, I do have friends that like to come over and play.

I'd rather be able to just create my own set list, though.

It's been out for a number of months in Europe and has received very good reviews; average ranking of about 80% on gamerankings. It's the only game I'm planning on buying this week and with all the games that are releasing in the next 3 months I'm very grateful it's only $20.  slywink thumbsup

Oh wow, $20?  I think this might actually be purchased instead of just being put on "the list."

Zelda: Twilight Princess and a late night Guitar Hero II party with the fiancee and a pair of friends.  If only there was some way all four of us could rock out together at the same time...
