About this product
- Product InformationRock Band's beat goes on with this third installment in Harmonix' music rhythm series, featuring an 83-song set list, support for a new instrument peripheral, and access to a downloadable music library spanning close to two thousand songs at the time of its release. Perhaps the biggest surprise with this version is a new "Rock Band Pro" difficulty level that lets you play supported peripherals as you would a real instrument. In addition to microphones, drums, and guitars, a new wireless keyboard controller is available to expand your band, and the three-part vocal harmonies introduced with The Beatles: Rock Band are included as well.
Up to seven players can join in the fun with a variety of drop-in and drop-out party modes. Solo players will embark on a career mode supporting more than 700 goals and rewards, with each game type offering social networking tools for Facebook, Twitter, and similar programs to keep your friends and family members updated on your progress. As in Rock Band 2, you can customize your onscreen alter ego with a variety of clothing, accessory, and equipment options. To help you manage your music library, Rock Band 3 lets you create and save custom set lists to share with others. You can also sort music via filters or find similar songs with the built-in recommendation system.
Featured artists in this version of the game include the Doors, Slipknot, Smash Mouth, Jimi Hendrix, Ozzy Osbourne, Huey Lewis and the News, Queen, Joan Jett, Dio, Nightranger, the Cure, Metric, Phoenix, and more. Rock Band 3 for PlayStation 3 is only available in the U.S. as a standalone purchase, with the keyboard peripheral sold separately. It should be noted that while earlier guitars will work with Rock Band 3, the "Rock Band Pro" setting requires a six-string model designed specifically for the game. Existing drum controllers will also need three expansion cymbals to participate in the professional mode, but the keyboard controller can be enjoyed in all modes without any additional items.

Outstanding game, hard to find for PS3
We wanted to pic up this game as it was the last version available for PS3 that would allow you to purchase the more recent Rock Band song packs. The gameplay is great and the songs are fun to play. A must have for the Rock Band Collection.

Amazingly entertaining game with solid graphics, and great music selection!
Rock Band 3 improves on the previous hits, Rock Band 1&2. The game introduces pro modes for the various instruments, as well as the all new keyboards. The UI has vastly improved, and is as near perfect as possible. Online works flawlessly over PSN, although voice chat quality with other players is not that good. The 83 new songs build on the existing great setlists from the previous games, which can be imported for a small fee, thus expanding the total library visible in Rock Band 3. A must have if you remotely enjoy rhythm games.

NO MORE EXPORT SONGS FROM ROCKABAND 2 INTO ROCKBAND 3
It is a fun game. That is why I bought it along with exporting the Rockband 2 games to use with it. Apparently Hamonic are no longer allowing you to export Rockband 2 songs into it anymore for $10. I loaded up my PSN account with $10 ready to export the songs, but I found out the jerks are not allowing it anymore.

Fun game, limited amount of good songs to play.
I like that I can finally create a guy character that looks decent. The old games male character choices were limited and quite unattractive.
The female choices are still good-looking, and you can customize much more in the character's faces in this game than the previous games. It's cool.
The piercing accessories when customizing your character are terrible. The older games did so much better with piercings (lip piercings, nose piercings, etc) for the characters. Same with tattoos.
The songs are very limited, I do not like many of them at all. I actually spent about $60 buying new music from the RB Store so I can play something I enjoy. A majority of the songs aren't even Rock genre. They're more pop or country or something! It's called ROCKband. So I bought better music.
Everything else is great, gamewise. It's still fun to play, as long as you get the better music.
Overall, I prefer Rockband 1 and 2. Rockband 2 is my favorite out of all 3 games.Read full review

If you and friends are music fans, it's a rocking karaoke alternative.
I'm a little late on the Rockband bandwagon but still had fun wailing away in the living room with my roommates, jamming to some damn fine music. Through codes you are able to unlock all songs from previous Rockband's and port them to part 3. This accompanied with downloadable songs from PSNetwork makes the variety of songs quite decent. The character creator is also a decent highlight.
HOWEVER, as I am a musical hermit. Theres only a few songs I actually like playing so I'm kinda burnt out pretty quick on the whole game. The character creator, although decent, is pretty limited and taxing. As every unlockable item is expensive and I'd rather not earn points playing songs I don't care about though the game. So, kinda boned there. I was a bit unimpressed with the stopping point in creativity of the game. Sure, you can make yourself as a character, create a band for you and your friends, preform at parties and sleazy dives around the world trying to work your way up as a band that ONLY covers other people's songs, but creative people are creative. We want a freeplay mode where we can make up our own songs! Fun as it may be, you are still a cover band, restrained to unoriginality.Read full review
