Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

November 24, 2010 -

A Columbia Daily Tribune report, citing data from BFads.net, says that Rock Band 3 is the most anticipated game this holiday shopping season? What? One might come to the conclusion that, given the early popularity of releases such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Fallout: New Vegas and the soon-to-be-released 1200 lbs. juggernaut that is World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, a different title would be at the top of this list.

Here is the list according to the site:

  1. Kinect
  2. Rock Band 3
  3. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  4. Donkey Kong Country Returns
  5. Gran Turismo 5
  6. Epic Mickey
  7. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
  8. Fallout: New Vegas
  9. God of War: Ghost of Sparta
  10. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

The site doesn't reveal how it came to these conclusions. It also should be pointed out that Kinect for Xbox 360 is listed as the actual #1 "game" in the list..

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

Out of all the games of that list, Rock Band 3 is definitely the game I anticipated the most. It's also the one that gives me the most frustrations. I don't know if you guys south of the border have the same problem but there is a serious shortage of plastic instruments up here in Canada. I finally got a keyboard yesterday despite the game having been released nearly a month ago. Everytime a store gets some new instruments, its gone 1-2 hours after they're on the shelves. For guys working 9 to 5, that means missing out on the opportunity to buy them. Chances of getting the new guitar model or the new pro cymbals, in store, before christmas are not looking good. Fortunately, I'll be able to buy to guitar on a website but I haven't found one selling the pro-cymbals only.

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

The keyboard, yes. I was lucky to get one on launch week, but my EB only got a single bundle in and I grabbed it. It's getting better with every week, though. I haven't seen any Mustang pro guitars north of the border yet, but for the pro cymbals, I have seen those. My local EB has the RB3 branded drum kits in. I'm not sure about just the cymbals though.

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

As someone who owns all the Rock Band games, it is a lot of fun :) RB3 I would say is one of the best party games to have. If you invested in RB1 or 2, then you might have the guitars and drums already. Just get the keyboard with RB3 :) --------- James Fletcher, member of ECA Canada

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

Even though RB3 is not the most amazing game in the world (It has it's shortcomings but overall it's an enjoyable experience) I'm glad it's near the top of the list... ...but this seems like another analyst's opinion.

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

Very interesting... RB3 had slow sales out of the gate, but it looks like it may pick up considerably over the holidays. Good to see, as I'm a huge RB addict and RB3 is amazing. :)

Re: Rock Band 3 on Most Wanted Christmas List

It's not surprising. Rock Band, when you consider all the possible instruments, is a pretty hefty investment any time of the year. But Christmas is a time to ask for expensive gifts you wouldn't buy for yourself any other time. Add the family value (everyone can play), and it makes a great holiday gift.

Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm
Andrew EisenNot the best look but that appears to be a PKE meter hanging from McCarthy's belt.08/01/2015 - 7:34pm

MattsworknameNomad colossus did a little video about it, showing the world and what can be explored in it's current form. It's worth a look, and he uses text for commentary as not to break the immerison08/01/2015 - 5:49pm
MattsworknameI feel some more mobility would have made it more interesting and I feel that a larger more diverse landscape with better graphiscs would help, but as a concept, it interests me08/01/2015 - 5:48pm
Andrew EisenHuh. I guess I'll have to check out a Let's Play to get a sense of the game.08/01/2015 - 5:47pm
