Is is available for Nintendo, too? And is this the REAL The Touch or that recent farce of a remake?

1337W422102, yes it is available on the wii and it's the 2007 version. PS3, no news yet so it's a downer for me as I do not own the X-box 360, this is the only reason why I'm getting world tour.

It's free to download for xbox 360 in the UK. Guess you only have to pay if you have a US account.

Yay! For once, UK Transformers fans get a better deal than their US counterparts!

Actually, I live in the US and got it for free, so sorry man, we actually got the same deal!

I think that dude must have forgotten what country he was in... :wink:

Okay, am I missing something here? The news story says that it costs 160 MS points, yet everyone seems to be getting it for free.

At one point I was 1st on the Expert Bass rankings, 17th on Expert Guitar... but I seem to have been overtaken somewhat.

Anyway, Rock Band 2 is way better than Guitar Hero WT.

Is it close to the original, or is it lame?

It's the 2007 version of the original, so it's like the original with updated guitar riffs

The major difference to my ears is in the keyboards.

Which is odd, because you think they'd be able to match something like that pretty accurately, given modern-day synthesizer technology.

Either way, the original sounds a lot 'fuller', a tad more 'wall-of-sound-y' than the later version.

Although he's still a legend to Transformers fans, Stan's not really a hot seller these days. So maybe he just couldn't afford a decent producer.

Yup. I just downloaded it and I must confess, that was a bit of old school fun!

The track was mistakenly priced at 160 MS points when it was first available, they later updated it to the correct price: Free.

I had a HUGE hassle with this today and it drove me freakin' crazy!

Here is the blog post I wrote on it... lol

I would have preferred the original, for sure, but I'm definitely not complaining.

Other than the fact that it came out in Guitar Hero and not Rock Band, of course.

Now if we could just get Dare and a few others... :D
