Way to go... include an achievement that's unattainable at launch. Thought
Microsoft watched for this stuff.

Agreed. Also it would be nice if all the controllers were available at launch as well. Still, it is the best rhythm game to date.

Does anyone know of a way to get the link-code changed? Cos mine's seriously not working!

Comment #16 by Illerongis
Monday, December 27, 2010 @ 02:38:27 PM

that method worked for me, but only after I changed controllers... very weird.

I did all those steps with my guitar controller and it didn't work, but as soon as I switched to a regular controller to do vocals, it popped.

Finally got to link on the rockband website. Went into the game and no achievement. Any idea as to what needs to be done to trigger it in the game?

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 @ 11:40:12 AM

Finally got this to work for me today. I'll just check on it later today since I think it takes a little while for it to register that you've done this.

why does it say that me code or gamertag is wrong i just bought the game new 30 mins ago

Comment #23 by Darth Nightwing
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 @ 11:40:41 AM

I have entered my code/gamertag on 3 different computers. It is still telling me Something’s wrong! Either that web code or that gamer tag is invalid. Why don’t you try it again?" I am entering both correct each time. I hate achievements that are wierd numbers but worse when they don't unlock. I would think that if this many people are having problems they would address the issue.

Just so everyone knows: After youve linked the game turn off system and load up rock band 3 with a regular Xbox 360 controller achievement unlocked!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 @ 12:28:13 AM

You have to press start when the game tells you "Press Start." If you do something else, like press A, it won't unlock.

Monday, February 14, 2011 @ 05:49:34 PM

What worked for me was making sure to have rockband 3 running before signing in, I was registered online from 2 so it really got mad at me and I had to redo all of the online
info. But playing with different setups got it working, just try everything.

I linked it and didn't get the achievement, went back to dashboard, reloaded RB3, then when in the main menu it gave me the achievement. So if you don't get it, try reloading the game again.

Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 10:12:47 PM

No matter what I try, it won't unlock. Everything's linked, I've tried swapping controllers, I even thought the problem was that you had to use Rock Band equipment instead of Guitar Hero, but no.

im registered on the website fine, have been for about a week, and have tried starting the game with a controller and guitar, still nothing, im sick of my gamerscore ending in a 9, help

Same here Magneto, it's really starting to fuck me off having my gamerscore ending in 9 grrrrrr!!

Comment #52 by MoldyPond
Sunday, June 05, 2011 @ 07:50:33 PM

FINALLY!!! I think I know how it unlocks if it doesn't feel like unlocking, even though says you're registered. 1. Unlink your game while keeping Rock Band 3 on. 2. Go to the link game page on 3. Copy the information, but don't link it yet. 4. Shut off your Xbox. 5. Now click to link the game on 6. Turn on your Xbox and load up Rock Band 3, making sure that you press start, not green/A. As soon as it connects to Rock Band Central, it SHOULD unlock. If it doesn't, give it a day or two. If it still doesn't work, then I guess I just got lucky.

Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 04:48:47 AM

just followed MoldyPond's instructions and it popped as soon as game connected to rock band central. been trying to get this for months, thanks so much!

Comment #56 by ii Evo v
Tuesday, August 02, 2011 @ 06:33:33 PM

Just got it, I did this:
1. Link it all up normally. (Shouldn't pop up yet)
2. Turn your console off. (remembering your code)
3. Link it on website whilst console is off.
4. Turn console back on.
5. Wait 5 minutes.

Comment #57 by Auron9102
Monday, August 15, 2011 @ 10:36:46 PM

Maybe I just got lucky, but I just had the screen on the Rock Band main menu, had it opened up to my link code. I linked everything from my laptop. Then I went back to the xbox dashboard, then started the game again and the achievement popped up.

Comment #58 by aliasecho
Wednesday, August 17, 2011 @ 06:29:47 PM

i think i got lucky when i did this but, i linked my account and everything, i unlinked it, turned it off and turned it back on and nothing, so i unlink my account and turn it back on and left my game running and after about 5-10 minutes it popped up, while my account was unlinked which i thought was kinda weird since i thought your account had to be linked but i guess not

Comment #59 by aliasecho

Comment #60 by Kornkid031
Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 08:00:25 PM

No no no no no! This is how you do it EASILY, Fast and it WORKS!!

1. Go to make an account
2. Go to your email and activate the account
3. Once back on go to My Gameplay/settings/Linking
4. Keep your screen there... Load up your RB3 disc.
5. Go to Options/extras/Activation Code on the RB3 main menu
6. Get the code
7. Enter it on
8. Exit RB3 and go to your 360 dashboard.
9. Load RB3 right back up and POP!

Thats how you unlock the gayest 6G EVER in 360 History! What a stupid fucking way for a site to get hits and for people to make accounts... assholes...

In my opinion, Microsoft should not allow acheivements like these and I don't just mean uneven gamerscore(though I hate those too). Acheivements that are made for the sole purpose of promoting your company/website is not cool!
Anyways, just linked my account 4 days ago and have been playing the game everyday ever since. I tryed just about everything(signing in and out, unlinking and linking my account, loading rock band up after dashboarding and signing out, and almost everthing listed on this page). If anyone has any other solution, please help!

Sucks for me too. Anyone know of another achievement worth 6 GS I can get to even out my total?

Comment #74 by Jollybeard99
Monday, February 09, 2015 @ 10:07:54 PM

Jesus F'ing Christ...I HATE this so much. I suppose achievements weren't as big of a deal when Rock Band came out but straight up making your achievements unattainable should a crime. I spent money on trying to 100% this game before realizing it was 100% IMPOSSIBLE. Bump dat Harmonix....Bump DAT!!!

Comment #75 by Jollybeard99
Monday, February 09, 2015 @ 10:09:16 PM

Oh and MetalStorm178 and anyone else interested, the game The Bridge has weird points distribution so that would round out anyone's weird score. I know it's bugging the hell out of me now.

Comment #76 by BreezN
Thursday, April 02, 2015 @ 04:52:54 PM

Years ago I had an uneven GS before finally fixing it and now this shit? You have to be fucking kidding me... You make achievo that everyone is guaranteed to do worth 6 just to rope everyone into your site that doesnt work to try to even back out, fuck you sirs.... Fuck you

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 @ 04:20:56 PM

I am seriously annoyed that I can no longer get this achievement. My OCD with numbers (and yes its that annoying) has finally gotten the better of me to the point of me wanting to even it out because I try my best not to see said score not on a 5 or a 0. They should at least have an update (I have yet to put my disk in the xbox because I found this first) to remove the said achievement or to just *give* said points to those who have yet to do the stupid thing on the site posted.
Sorry I had to rant my frustration.
