This idea is actually smart!!
Okaay... Because its to many gh games at the marked. i was just thinking.
WHy not put out the band ghs as DLCs?

Gh: aerosmith is DLC to GH III
Gh: Metallica Is DLC to GH: WT
Gh : Van Halen is GH 5 DLC?

This is kinda smart. And they achievements too.

Like Gh III Updated to 1750!!
..... SMART??? Anybody who is think this IS smart?

nah not really, the only GH I own is Aerosmith, all the others are crap but I really like Aerosmith, there is no way in hell I would go buy GH5 to allow me to download say GH Slipknot or whatever

they need to stop making GH/DJ/Music games, Rock Band destroys it so much

Games haven't been on CD (Compact discs) since the PSX/Saturn. They are now using a much nicer format known as DVD (digital versatile disc).

but [as you say] its DLC for GH5, so I would still need GH5 to play it

its not a smart idea

If you are a Gh fan, it is smart. it will be cheaper... 1600 MSP. and it is possible to play at a disc too. Like Gta episodes...You understand?

Bleeding Star

SO what your saying is you just the want all the songs etc on a disc and not need GH5 to play it......

You do know that songs cost $2 to download right? They will not make a huge pack that can sell at retail for $60 and choose to sell it for $20.

This idea is about as smart as sticking needles into your balls, repeatedly, forcefully, and the needles are tipped with poison.

The games are not fit for DLC packs, have you played GH: M? It's probably the most well put together GH out, with all it's awesome features, and I'm sure GH: VH will be the same. Aerosmith, yes, that could have been a DLC pack, but it'd still cost a lot.

They couldn't really price them at 1600, they have to make money for licensing and stuff for one thing. Sure, 40 for 50 songs is a bit steep, but so what, unless you're really poor it shouldn't really matter too much.

Also, you'd have to play GHM on GHWT's engine, so yeah, thanks, but I'll go back to sticking poison needles in my balls if you don't mind...

I was thinking that at first, but if it's only songs, it'd be somewhere around 3 to 4gb roughly, which is less than it takes to install a game, so it's not all that much to be honest.

Apparantly you missed your Economics class because instead of making a full retail game that some people will buy, your "great idea" would make Activision lose a ton of money. Not only are you losing about $30.00 in initial profit if you sell JUST the content on the Marketplace.

Sorry Felix, it just isn't a very good idea and it doesn't make it one just because you thought of it.

And sticking needles in your balls is far better idea than this...:rolleyes:

Exactly, and I'm sure most of the owners of a 360 only have a 20gb or a 60gb HDD, so this would be very inconvenient for them, which would then mean that Neversoft/Beenox would be losing sales.

So yeah, excellent idea.

I was tricked into getting WT and was VERY disappointed. Metallica was good but it just made me want to stop playing and get out the real guitar.

Anyway this thread is obviously a joke... I hope so anyway for the OP's sake.

Metallica already released their whole new album as DLC anyway, and I'm sure other bands have released big chunks of their back-catalogue too?

08-09-2009, 09:26 PM

It's a flawed idea through and through. First off, not every one has a 60/120gig hard drive and if by DLC you mean all the songs in the game then it would come down to this in terms of Microsoft points.

Guitar Hero Aerosmith: 41 songs x 160 MS points each = 6560 MSP
Guitar Hero Metallica: 49 songs x 160 MS points each = 7840 MSP
Guitar Hero Van Halen: 44 songs x 160 MS points each = 7040 MSP

If they did do that, I would be paying up to $80+ Canadian dollars for each pack.

So you're saving money and hard drive space by buying the discs. Not to mention how would people with no internet connection be able to download them?

This is just a stupid idea.

A DLC song is around $2 (i think) I don't know the MSP translation thingy.

So in the US you pay $60 for games yeah? Well lets use Smash Hits as an example.

There is 43 songs in SH. So you do 43 X 2.

What do you get? 96.

So that is $96 for GHSH as DLC.
What is a retail disc price? $60?
96 - 60 = 36

YOU WANT TO PAY $36 EXTRA FOR IT TO BE ON YOUR HARD DRIVE?

Even with the new exporting of GHSH I doubt they will make that cost $36, so you can buy a disc and export it to GH5 for less than it will cost to be DLC.

Man you is stupiy.

Based on the tracklist, yes. Based on gameplay, no.
Metallica is best with gameplay (and also has a killer tracklist imho). Also has real cool features like Metallifacts.

I wish they would do that with every GH game. Give you the option to view the videoclip for some, if not all, songs or even make a playlist without the need to play along with it, so you can just listen the songs!

This is hands down my favorite quote I have seen on this site yet. I laughed for probably 3 minutes!

But anyways. This idea would potentially be slightly better for some people, but it would lose Activison alot of money, seeing as every single Guitar Hero game they make sells a ton of copies. AKA, it's wishful thinking that has absolutely no chance of ever happening.

You want a game that does something like this? It's called rock band 2. Loads of track packs including full album track packs, some of which are also available on standalone disc for people without interwebz. HMX could have blossomed some of their track packs/CDs into full retail games, and screwed us out of some more money, but they are too cool for that. And before anyone mentions Beatles Rock Band... They are building a nice original game from the ground up rather than just re-skinning a previous game with different songs.

Crimson Ridley
08-10-2009, 06:36 PM
Actually, they have done that. Country, Classic, Metal, Track Pack 2, AC/DC. These all retail around the same price as a full game.

They each have about 20 songs on them, so they aren't as innocent and golden as everyone seems to think they are.

I never said they were a good deal, personally i haven't played any of them and i will probably skip all of them unless i find them in a bargain bin for 5 bucks or something. But it is an option for people who want extra tracks and have no internet. Agreed that they are overpriced though.
