Default Rock Band

First real footage. Article says it's coming out Q4 this year. It will be expensive, but I'm def. looking forward to it.

Wow. That looks sweet. I was wondering what drums would look like. Looks more like bongos than a drumset, but whatever, I don't know how else you could make a good drum controller.

The manufacturer says that if you can beat the drums at expert you can play the instrument. I kinda believe that its true to a large extent. 4 drum pads and a pedal.

You guys are lucky that you're young and can jam with your friends on this. At 38, none of my friends play this stuff. Maybe I will be able to form an online band or whatever.

Okay, after 5 days with GH2, I am up to beating the battle of the bands on hard. Like they say on South Park, I guess I am now immortal, since "How do you kill that which has no life?"

QFMFT!!!!!!!!

That looks as good as I hoped. Some people on the YouTube comments are bashing the drum setup, but jeez, I think it looks pretty sweet for what it needs to do. I can't imagine how much it's going to cost though.

For those who didn't notice originally in the clip, the singing portion is across the top of the screen. I didn't notice it at first.

That better come out for the Wii, and have online modes, that's for sure.

This really is an incredibly cool idea. I'd love to try it out but for me a bit of the charm's been lost since I started learning guitar. I can't deny though that this looks like an insane amount of fun. Presumably you'd be able to select which instruments you wanted to use so that someone wouldn't always have to sing or whatever.
