No online money.... but apparently plenty for this garbage!
People have bitched and cried for years over the Kinect and Eyetoy type devices; i.e not wanting to pay for them, see no use for them, etc., yet somehow HMX actually hopes to see people dropping a ton more money on another high priced peripheral?!?! One that you have to stick onto and cover your entire FACE?!?! After many people have just spent so much on BiaB bundles, extra guitars, DLC, etc.?!?!?
This isn't going to turn out well HMX. I love you, but sorry, this is going to prove to be a big waste of money, dev. time and other resources that could have been used more wisely on things that will turn/generate a profit for you all. Mainly things that MOST people want and will generate money for HMX in the form of RB4 improvements/additions.
3D and VR has never, ever, been able to gain mass appeal or long term traction with the general populous (outside of maybe the tech geeks/nerds and possibly the moviephiles, etc).
There just isn't going to be a big enough market to generate any kind of ROI to justify doing this!?!?
Doesn't look like common sense or the bean-counters have stopped you all from charging ahead with this though, so good luck!
Let's just hope this stinkbomb's ultimate crash and burn doesn't affect the long term growth and commitment to the one true (always been there for you) source of income... RockBand!
Me personally, I hate seeing this being made when I'm looking at an "incomplete" (read: less the full featured) product in RB where I can't even play RB4 with my "bandmates" from around the world that I've had for so many years on RB and been able to do so on every game previously.
Not to mention all the other things wrong with this game that have now seemed to splinter the RB community! As it appears we are now starting to see a playerbase of RB3 players and another of RB4! You should be spending your time and resources doing the things that put your playerbase back together and nurturing the one game and it's users that have always been there for you and never let you down.... like you're doing to them right now! :(
