Rock Band allows players to perform in virtual bands by providing up to four players with the ability to play three different peripherals modeled after music instruments (a guitar peripheral for lead guitar and bass guitar gameplay, a drum peripheral, and a microphone). These peripherals are used to simulate the playing of rock music by hitting scrolling notes on-screen. Players using the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles can interact through both online and offline multiplayer capabilities. In addition to the songs shipping on the game disc, hundreds of new tracks will be made available as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions; the Wii version will not initially support downloadable content.[8] The game has received widespread critical acclaim[9] and has sold over 3 million bundled units over all platforms,[10] and with over 15 million songs downloaded.[11] For other uses, see Guitar (disambiguation). ...

Development history

Harmonix Music Systems was previously responsible for developing the Guitar Hero series , while RedOctane manufactured the peripherals and owned the rights to the series. However, in June 2006, RedOctane was bought by Activision, while in September 2006, Harmonix was purchased by MTV Networks. As a result of the two purchases, Harmonix would no longer be able to develop future Guitar Hero games. Instead, Neversoft, a subsidiary of Activision, would take over development; the company released Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on October 28, 2007.[12][13] Guitar Hero redirects here. ...

Current Harmonix parent company MTV has been providing financial support to the development process, leveraging its stature to facilitate deals with record companies for licensing rights to songs.[14] Several record companies have pledged their support by offering master recordings.[15] Pressed for office space, Harmonix was forced to move its offices in the middle of Rock Band's beta period in order to support the company's 130-person staff.[16] Although the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game were developed in-house, Harmonix outsourced development of the PlayStation 2 version to Pi Studios, as it omits certain features.[17] A master recording is an original recording, from which copies may be made. ...

Rock Band was a featured game at the 2007 E3 convention and provided one of the exhibition's highlights; Harmonix employees and Microsoft executive Peter Moore played the game on-stage, performing The Hives' "Main Offender".

Harmonix faced difficulty in making the Xbox 360 guitar wireless, as developers are charged a licensing fee to use Microsoft's wireless technology. Had Harmonix chosen to pay the fee, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 bundles of Rock Band would have sold at different price points. Instead, Harmonix elected to choose a wired technology for the Xbox 360 bundle's guitar.[17]


According to the January 28, 2008 edition of KCRW's "The Business", the game cost $200 million to develop.[18]


A Wii version of the game was officially announced on January 31, 2008 by Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello,[19] and had a release date of June 22, 2008 in North America. This version of the game excludes features such as the online functionality found in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, instead having "functionality similar to the PS2 version".[20] The game disc includes all 58 playable tracks found in other versions of Rock Band, as well as five additional songs already available as downloadable content.[6][21] The Wii (pronounced as the pronoun we, IPA: ) is the fifth home video game console released by Nintendo. ... is the 31st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Common Era (or Anno Domini), in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 173rd day of the year (174th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Common Era (or Anno Domini), in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. ...

Gameplay

Each instrument is represented by a different interface: bass guitar (left), drums (middle), lead guitar (right), vocals (top). The Band Meter (green meter on left) measures the performance of each band member, while the Energy Meter (gold meter beneath each interface) tracks each player's Overdrive.

Reusing many gameplay elements from the Guitar Hero series, Rock Band players use peripherals modeled after musical instruments to simulate the performance of rock music. Players must play these instruments in time with musical "notes" as they scroll towards them on the screen. Rock Band expands upon the Guitar Hero series, in that it offers gameplay for drums and vocals, in addition to lead and bass guitars. The game features a single-player career mode for three of the instruments (lead guitar, drums, and vocals) called "Solo Tour Mode,"[26] as well as a band career mode for 2-4 local players called "Band World Tour."[26][27] The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game support both local and online players for multiplayer modes (except for Band World Tour), while the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions only support local play.[26] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 450 pixelsFull resolution (1280 × 720 pixel, file size: 219 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Screenshot of Rock Band, courtesy of IGN.com http://media. ...

In the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, players can create and customize their own in-game character, complete with adjustable hair, body physique, clothing, tattoos, onstage movements, and instruments. Each character is permanently locked into a specific instrument. Using cash earned within the game, the player may purchase items at the in-game "Rock Shop," with which they can customize their rock star. The game features an art maker where players can combine different clip art elements to create custom face paint, tattoos, clothing designs, instrument artwork, and band logos.[27]-1...

On-screen, Game Informer describes the game as a combination of the Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution gameplay elements.[28] Rock Band has up to three tracks of vertically scrolling colored music notes, one section each for lead guitar, drums, and bass.[28] The colored notes on-screen correspond to buttons on the guitar and drum peripherals.[28] Along the top of the screen is the vocals display, which scrolls horizontally, similar to Karaoke Revolution. The lyrics display beneath green bars, which represent the pitch of the individual vocal elements.[28] If any part is not being played, its interface does not appear on-screen. The remainder of the screen is used to display the band's virtual characters as they perform in concert.

During cooperative play as a band, all players earn points towards a common score, though score multipliers and "Overdrive" (the equivalent of Guitar Hero's "Star Power") are tracked separately for each player.[28] The bass guitar player can raise his/her multiplier as high as 6x (compared to a 4x multiplier for the other players) and achieve "Bass Groove" because, as noted by a GameSpot preview, "bass can get a little dry sometimes."[29] Overdrive is collected during select portions of a song by successfully playing all white notes within that section (guitar and bass players can also use the guitar controller's whammy bar to extract Overdrive from white sustained notes).[30] Once the meter is filled halfway, players can deploy their Overdrive, resulting in the "Band Meter" (which tracks how well each player is doing) changing more dramatically. This allows players to strategically use Overdrive to raise the Band Meter and pass portions of a song they otherwise might have failed. In solo play, deploying Overdrive doubles the player's score multiplier. However, in band play, activating Overdrive instead increases the score multiplier of the entire band by two. Additionally, players can now deploy Overdrive independently of each other (previous Guitar Hero games required players in Co-Operative mode to deploy Star Power simultaneously), as well as collect additional Overdrive while it is deployed and draining (previous Guitar Hero games hid additional Star Power sections while Star Power was activated).[30] A tremolo arm, tremolo bar, vibrato bar, whammy bar, or wang bar is a lever attached to the bridge and/or the tailpiece of an electric guitar or archtop guitar to enable the player to quickly vary the tension and sometimes the length of the strings temporarily, changing the pitch...


Each band member can choose the difficulty at which they play (spanning Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert). If a player does not play well enough and falls to the bottom of the Band Meter, they will fail out of the song and their instrument will be muted from the audio mix. However, any active player can activate their Overdrive to bring failed players back into the song,[28] "saving" the band member. However, a band member can only be saved twice; after the third failure, they cannot be brought back for that song. Failed players continuously drag the band's Band Meter down until they are saved. If the player is not saved before the Band Meter reaches the bottom, the band fails the song. Special portions of songs are labeled as "Unison Phrases," which reward the band with a score and Overdrive bonus if each player can play their parts perfectly during the phrase. Select songs end with a special "Big Rock Ending," which gives the players a chance to improvise and earn extra points. If each player successfully plays the final notes of the song following the freestyle portion of the "Big Rock Ending," the band earns all of the "Big Rock Ending" points. Otherwise, the bonus is lost.


Band World Tour mode

The world map in Band World Tour, which allows the band to select a city, venue, and setlist.

"Band World Tour" is the game's primary multiplayer mode. It allows any combination of 2-4 local players to create a virtual band, play gigs, and tour a virtual representation of the world. Although online play is not supported for Band World Tour, players can use the "Band Quickplay" mode to play together as a band online.[31] For the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, Band World Tour mode lets bands play in 41 different venues spanning 17 cities, including Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, New York, London, Sydney, Stockholm, and Rome.[32] After choosing a band name and hometown city, the band members can create their own rock characters, as well as a band logo. Once setup is complete, the band can begin playing concerts in small venues in their hometown until they unlock vans, tour buses and private jets, which unlock more cities and different continents. Unlocking and completing new gigs unlocks additional songs for play across all game modes. Successful performances also earn the band fans (used as a metric of measuring the band's popularity), stars (which accumulate based on the success of each individual song performed), and in-game cash (which each player can spend at the "Rock Shop").[33] Most cities and larger venues require the band to achieve a certain number of fans and stars before they are unlocked. In the process, bands can loop through cities multiple times, eventually playing larger venues in cities they have already visited.[32] In-game venues are inspired by real-life venues and often display local art styles from each of the represented cities.[32] Los Angeles and L.A. redirect here. ...

For the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, rather than complete predetermined lists of songs (like in previous Guitar Hero games), players complete unique sets of activities at each venue. Performances consist of single songs, multiple song sets, "make your own" setlists, and mystery setlists.[33] Players are also faced with decisions that Harmonix refers to as "risk-versus-reward."[33] Bands need to choose which sized venue they perform at carefully, as a poor performance at a larger venue poses a greater threat of the band losing fans.[33] For certain performances, bands are faced with an optional challenge that requires the band to average a certain amount of stars for their gig in order to reap the rewards.[33] Bands can also choose to perform a benefit concert (earning no in-game money but gaining more fans) or "sell-out" (earning more in-game money but losing fans).[33] Additionally, for certain gigs, bands can compete for band managers, roadies, security personnel, and sound guys, as well as a recording deal with a record label.[33] The "Endless Setlist" becomes unlocked after completing several objectives within Band World Tour mode. Players will get to experience an all-day concert atmosphere, as the setlist requires playing the entire game disc's setlist from start to finish.[34] Selling out refers to the compromising of ones integrity, morality and principles in exchange for money, success or other personal gain. ...


The PlayStation 2 and Wii versions of Rock Band contain a more stripped-down version of the Band World Tour mode, as 2-4 local players will only be able to play by completing predetermined tiers of songs ordered by difficulty. Players cannot create their own characters, nor can they choose a city, venue, or a setlist to play.[35]


Solo Tour modes

"Solo Tour" is a single-player mode offered for the lead guitar, drum, and microphone peripherals (there is no support for bass). Rather than feature the open-ended gameplay and features of the next-generation versions of Band World Tour mode, Solo Tour is structured much in the same vein as the career mode in Guitar Hero games. Players choose/create their character (on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions only) and complete predetermined sets of songs ordered by difficulty, with each instrument's setlist ordered differently. By completing these sets of songs, additional songs are unlocked for play across all game modes. For the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, players can use money earned for each performance to purchase merchandise at the "Rock Shop." The character's cash carries over into Band World Tour mode, and vice versa.


Other modes

Players can quickly play any song on any instrument individually in "Solo Quickplay." For a competitive experience, players can individually compete against each other for each instrument type in the "Tug of War" (much like Guitar Hero's "Face-off," in which players trade playing sections of a song to move a meter in their favor) and "Score Duel" (much like Guitar Hero II's "Pro Face-off," in which each player plays the song in its entirety to earn points). These head-to-head modes are available both online (for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions) and locally.[36] "Band Quickplay" mode allows bands to quickly play any song; the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions allow any combination of 2-4 local or online players to play as a band, while the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions only support 2-4 local players. Also included in Rock Band are "Tutorial Mode," which allows players to learn how to play each instrument, and "Practice Mode," which allows players to practice songs for each instrument.[26] For the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, Practice Mode allows players to choose specific segments of a song to practice and set the tempo of the song anywhere from 50% to 100% normal speed, at 10% increments. Vocals can only be practiced in their entirety at the original speed. The PlayStation 2 version allows players to practice songs in their entirety at full speed or in sections at 70% tempo only.


Instrument peripherals

The Fender Stratocaster guitar controller, which features 10 frets, a whammy bar, and an effects switch.

The game features special Rock Band-branded guitar controllers modeled after the Fender Stratocaster to be used for the lead and bass guitar gameplay; these are similar to the Guitar Hero controllers, aside from a few changes. To use the guitar controller, players must hold the fret button that corresponds to the scrolling colored note on-screen while simultaneously pushing the strum bar. The Stratocaster controller has five additional fret buttons of smaller size located lower down the guitar neck, closer to the guitar's main body. These buttons can be used to play all notes in guitar solos (denoted by the note track turning blue) as hammer-ons and pull-offs, without strumming.[28] The frets themselves are buttons, instead of being a fret with a button on it. Additionally, the controller features an effects pickup switch that can toggle between five different effects (none, wah-wah, flange, chorus, and echo for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions; none, doubler, slap back echo, medium echo, and long echo for PlayStation 2 [37]). These guitar effects are applied in solos and when Overdrive is activated. Overdrive for guitarists can be deployed by holding the controller in a vertical position or pressing the "Select/Back" button.

The drum controller, which features 4 pads, a bass drum pedal, and real drumsticks. The Wii version features white drums.[40]

The drum controller features four rubber drum pads and a kick pedal. The pads have colored rings around the edges that correspond to the notes on-screen, representing the snare drum (red), tom-tom (yellow), hi-hat (blue), and crash cymbal (green). The kick pedal simulates the bass drum, with on-screen notes represented as orange horizontal lines. To use the drum controller, players must strike the pads with the included authentic drum sticks and/or press the kick pedal in time with the scrolling notes on-screen. The four pads will commonly change functionality to represent other drums, depending on the requirements of a song. The default pad order can be reversed using the "Lefty Flip" option in the game. The legs of the drum peripheral can adjust in height or be detached if the player wishes to place it on a table-top.[41] The drum controller also features standard controller buttons in the middle of the peripheral for navigating in-game menus. Drummers can improvise in special "freestyle drum fill" sections of songs, indicated by the columns for each note turning a solid color. Overdrive for drummers can be deployed by hitting the crash cymbal (green note) that appears directly after a freestyle drum fill. Harmonix representatives have suggested, "If you can play the drum parts on hard, you can pretty much play the drums [in reality]."[27][26] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 450 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (480 × 640 pixel, file size: 66 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) This is a copyrighted image that has been released by a company or organization to promote their work or product in the media, such as advertising...

Rock Band's USB microphone instrument is similar to the model used in the Harmonix-developed Karaoke Revolution games. Players can use most other USB microphones, while Xbox 360 users can substitute their console's headset, if they wish.[7] For the most part, singers are judged on how closely they match the pitch of the song's vocalist. During "talking parts" that do not judge pitch, a phoneme detector will pick up individual vowels and consonants of the spoken lyrics.[42][28] Some sections without vocals will display circle notes, allowing for the microphone to be used as a tambourine and cowbell by tapping it or making vocal cues.

In the months prior to the game's release, Harmonix took requests from fans for possible songs and bands to be included in the game. Fans were able to visit the game's official site and nominate up to four songs they wanted to be in the game.[51] The new community website for the game brought this feature back, allowing players to suggest songs they would like to see as downloadable content.


Downloadable songs and Track Packs

Main article: List of downloadable songs for the Rock Band series

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game support downloadable songs. Users can download songs on a track-by-track basis, with many of the tracks bundled together in track packs or complete albums at a discounted rate.[52] Harmonix has likened the Rock Band game to a new platform for future music releases, and the company hopes to build the library of downloadable content up to hundreds of songs within the first year of the game's release by releasing new content on a weekly basis.[53] Fifteen songs were made available at the game's launch date. As of June 24, 2008, 152 songs are available, bringing the total amount of playable songs to 210. Downloadable songs are playable within every game mode,[7] including the Band World Tour career mode.[33]


Plans to release downloadable albums has been a major selling point for the game. Three albums, Judas Priest's Screaming for Vengeance, the eponymous first album from The Cars, and the Pixies' Doolittle have been released.[54] Furthermore, MTV Senior Vice President Paul DeGooyer has announced that Metallica may use Rock Band as the first venue to premiere a single from their upcoming album.[55] For other uses, see Judas priest (curse). ...

Online community

On October 25, 2007, Harmonix and MTV announced RockBand.com would be transformed into an extensive community website at the game's launch, and that it would extend the features of the game, much like Bungie.net does with the Halo series. The community website was absent at the game's launch in order to fix bugs and complete features, but was deployed on December 19, 2007. The site allows for leaderboards, customizable band profile pages with stats, a classified area for bands to find additional members, band blogs, online forums, and other sharing features.[57] Many originally announced features have yet to be made available, such as the ability for players to pose their avatars, take photo shoots, create fake album art for their band, and order T-shirts, bumper stickers, and figurines.[53] is the 298th day of the year (299th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

MTV and Harmonix promoted Rock Band heavily in the months leading up to the game's release. The game made a nationwide promotional tour of the United States.[58] Several tour buses made stops at major American cities to set up demo stations and showcase playable versions of the game for fans.[58] Many of the locations included college campuses. Additionally, fan-created "bands" were able to audition on-stage by playing the game; their performances were recorded and sent to MTV casting directors, who selected two bands to appear on Total Request Live in a "battle of the bands."

Official Xbox Magazine published the first review of Rock Band, scoring the Xbox 360 version a 9.5/10 and calling it "gaming's most intensely rewarding co-op experience." OXM also commented that the game's "payoff isn't visceral or technical; it's emotional."[72] IGN awarded the game a 9.4/10 score and an Editor's Choice Award for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. IGN largely praised the game, calling it "one of the must-have games of the year" and suggesting it "may just be among the best party games ever released."[71] 1UP.com gave the next-generation versions of the game an A,[67] stating that "Rock Band unquestionably, unequivocally rocks."

Most critics[67][68][70][71][72] have commended the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Rock Band for the game's group gameplay, the depth of Band World Tour mode, and the introduction of a drum peripheral. Common complaints about the game focus on the different feel of the packaged Fender Stratocaster controller,[68][71][72] as well as the game's Solo Tour modes not being as enjoyable as the multiplayer offerings.[67][71] IGN's video review lamented the lack of a single player Band World Tour mode.


The PlayStation 2 version of the game was well received, but was subject to criticism for the omission of the character customization features, as well as the stripped-down Band World Tour mode. GameSpot rated it an 8.0/10, stating that "Rock Band is still a lot of fun on the PS2--it's just nowhere near the ideal version of the experience."[95] IGN.com rated it an 8.4/10, noting that the removed features made the game feel like a "lessened" version, but that the game still "succeeds because it's infinitely fun to play with your friends."[96]


Reviews for the Wii version of Rock Band also criticize the lack of features compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. However, IGN notes that the drum controller is an improvement over the original version, stating, "The pads are quieter and the kick pedal will withstand more abuse."[97]


On May 2, 2008, Viacom announced 3 million bundled units across all three platforms were sold.[10]


Awards

Prior to the game's release, Rock Band was featured at the 2007 E3 convention, garnering much attention and receiving awards, including the Game Critics' "Best of E3 2007" awards for "Best of Show," "Best Hardware/Peripheral," and "Best Social/Casual/Puzzle,"[102] 1UP.com's "Best of E3,"[103] and GameSpot's "Best Stage Demo"[104] and "Best Xbox 360 Game."[105] The history of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) began with its creation in 1995 and has continued through the most recent expo in 2007. ...

Technical issues

A snapped bass drum pedal. This is one common malfunction occurring in Rock Band peripherals

Upon release, many players reported hardware issues with Rock Band peripherals. Many complaints stemmed from the bass drum pedal snapping in half and the Stratocaster controller's strum bar being unresponsive.[116] In response to these issues, Harmonix admitted the guitars bundled with initial shipment of the game bundles were subject to manufacturing issues and has stated that they will replace all faulty peripherals.[117] Players affected by faulty peripherals can take advantage of the 60 day warranty on the peripherals and obtain replacements from EA. EA has also responded to delayed shipments of replacement peripherals by offering some affected customers a free copy of an EA game or not requiring faulty equipment to be returned.[118][119]


Guitar incompatibility

Other players discovered at the game's launch that the Gibson Les Paul guitar controller bundled with the PlayStation 3 version of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is not compatible with the PlayStation 3 version of Rock Band, despite Harmonix stating that any controllers that followed the open-controller standard would work. While this incompatibility can be resolved through technical solutions, both Harmonix and Activision have cited the other party is at fault for failing to correct the incompatibility. Harmonix developed a patch to fix the issue, but it has been blocked by Activision.[120] Activision states that MTV Games is unwilling to reach an agreement to pay Activision to use the Guitar Hero III technology in Rock Band.[121] This is the same case with the Wii's Les Paul peripheral. Nyko has released a PlayStation 3 version of their "Frontman" guitar controller that is compatible with both Guitar Hero III and Rock Band.[122]-1... Nyko is a manufacturer of 3rd party accesories for various gaming consoles. ...
