Just a small little tidbit of info this week before we receive our third DLC hint for next week’s Rocksmith DLC.
NeoGAF is a great forum to be on if you are into video games. The site has been known to have various people from within the industry participate, and additionally has been used by developers and publishers to monitor feedback on their products.
Last week a post was made in the Rocksmith Official Topic thread that I think you’ll all find very interesting.
fyi, a “rocksmith 2” showed up on partnernet recently w/ december release date. idk if it means anything, could just be a placeholder which is pretty common
PartnerNet, for the unaware, is the name of the developers-only alternative Xbox Live network used by developers to beta test game content downloads, and games developed for Xbox Live Arcade. PartnerNet runs on Xbox 360 debug kits, which are used both by developers and by the gaming press. (Wikipedia)
Now of course this is only a rumour, but I had heard (through an anonymous source) about the Heavy Metal Gear Pack being tested on PartnerNet before the game was even released, and a Holiday release would be very much in line with a possible reveal at E3 2013 or maybe even a month before.
Rocksmith 2 is beginning to look more and more like a sure thing while BandFuse gets further and further away from their Spring 2013 release date…
