  • It is really cool that you’re giving away 10 free songs. I will be getting this game on PS4, however my issue is that I wanted the guitar bundle because I need a new guitar, and if I pre-order the game on PSN I won’t have an instrument to play it with, and if I buy the bundle elsewhere I won’t get the songs for free….so…what should I do.

  • Any news about a disc only version of the gamw. Every retailer I go to seems to have ether bundle but not the disc only. I don’t want to buy all new equipment. I wanted to use my old gear from the ps3 to the ps4 how can this be posible?

    • It should be available soon after launch. The game disc is available on its own here in Australia at EB Games and Mighty Ape. No love for us with any pre-order offers though :(

      I’m hoping this pre-order DLC will be available for purchase soon after launch. I’ve pre-ordered the band in a box bundle from Amazon UK, but there’s no pre-order offers there either. No love for anyone outside the US it seems.

      And, what’s happening with the cymbals kit for the RB4 drum kit?

      I could rip off the cymbals from my RB3 kit, but they’re a tad worn and probably won’t work as well as the new/improved ones right?

      Physical discs will be available for purchase on October 6th!

      All pre-order bonus tracks will be available for purchase in the Rock Band Music Store. Stay tuned for details on availability.

      Rock Band 4 Cymbal kits will be available for purchase at launch! Additionally, legacy Rock Band Cymbal kits will be compatible with the Rock Band 4 drum kits! :)

  • Rock Band 2 – 84 songs
    Rock Band 3 – 83 songs + new Pro content + Keyboard support.
    Rock Band 4 – 60 Songs and removed Keyboard and Pro support.

    Yeah… thanks a bunch. =-|
    Heck of a thank you for our continued support.

      Music licensing is a much more complicated process than it seems. We hope you find something you love to play in our 1,500+ DLC library!

  • I actually had this pre-ordered from Amazon on day one, but once I heard there will be no ONLINE SUPPORT I canceled it.
    It pained me to do so since Rock Band 3 was one of the best games I played on the PS3. I had an amazing time with it.

    I agree that it’s best enjoyed via “couch co-op”, but my friends live too far away and as you get older you just don’t have as many chances to get together with family & friends. Rock Band 3 online co-op gave us that chance to play with friends again.

    If Harmonix can at least confirm they are planning on adding this I will not only pre-order the game, but the entire bundle, as well as a copy for my best friend (and Rock Band 3 band mate).

    I’d also love to see keyboard support added back. I feel cutting this out is taking a step back instead of forward.
    Even it it just has to be for all of the pre-existing RB3 songs and DLC. I hate to have to give that up since that was my go to instrument. I also enjoyed playing the bass and guitar parts using the Mad Katz keyboard. It was perfect for laying in bed and playing.

      Thank you for your feedback! While we will not have synchronous online play at launch, we will absolutely have other online features slated for launch and beyond! We’re still designing, implementing, and testing these features, and we’ll tell you more about them in September.

    • Online features such as??
      …the very basics..? the ability to purchase more tracks for example, or basic leaderboard support, but It sounds like you will not be pursuing online co-op at all and that’s really a shame.

  • Will the legacy Rockband Setlists be purchasable? I switched from Xbox to Playstation and would really like to play those songs again, even if I have to re-buythem.

      We’ll have more information on disc exports in Rock Band 4 soon! :)

  • great looking forward to play this with my old library songs. 800++

  • TheWALSH3V_N

    So if you preorder it on amazon, do you get these extra songs or do i have to preorder it on the playstation store?

  • I don’t know any of these songs but I’ll pre-order anyway. All I need is the disc because I have all the instruments already, if I just pre-order the disc by itself, none of the retailers are offering songs, you have to buy instrument bundles.

  • Hello!
    these older songs (ps3 dlcs and previous games’ content) would be available to the psn store as dlcs?
    I never had rockband and I would like to have access to many songs. :)
