Future Rock Band DLC Incompatible With Previous Rock Band Games

November 9, 2010, By Nicholas Davis

All Rock Band downloadable content released after October 26, 2010 is only Rock band 3 compatible. All songs before that date you can still play on Rock Band 2 and the original Rock Band. Although new Rock Band Nation tracks will still be compatible with all versions of the Rock Band franchise.

Harmonix represenatives state Rock Band 3 can not be backwards compatible “due to the new authoring standards, inclusion of new instruments, new lighting / venue cues, etc.”

If your wondering how you will be able to tell the difference between the Rock Band 3 tracks so you don’t  end up buying a song you can’t play have no worries. Rock Band 3 songs will no longer show up in your Rock Band 2 marketplace.

Seems like Harmonix is somewhat forcing rhythm gamers to buy Rock Band 3 unless your content with the thousands of songs you can already play on Rock Band 2. Rock Band 3 is an enjoyable experience with the addition of the keyboard and the “Pro” guitar releasing fairly soon. Hopefully gamers don’t get upset at the fact they wont be playing a new David Bowie songe until they upgrade.
