Rock Band 3 is the third main release in the iconic video game series that challenges gamers to live out their Rock & Roll fantasies together in a band situation, both locally and online. The game features an ever expanding song list from every era of Rock & Roll history, easy to pick up yet challenging addictive Note Highway gameplay, compatibility with earlier releases in the series and all platform-specific instrument controllers including most Guitar Hero controllers, extreme in-game character and band customization, and a slew of new features.

Additionally, Rock Band 3 gives players immediate access to a music library approaching 2,000 songs by launch, with new content added regularly.

Redesigned Music Library
Rock Band 3 allows players to create and save setlists and share them with friends, both in-game and through RockBand.com. In addition, new song filters make it easier to find the types of songs fans want to play and hide the songs they don't, while a built-in song recommendation system will suggest tracks from Rock Band's colossal music library, based on personal fan preference.
Expand the Band
In addition to guitar, bass, drums and solo vocals, Rock Band 3 adds three-part vocal harmony functionality that was introduced with The Beatles: Rock Band and, for the first time ever, a keyboard peripheral to the band. The combination of all these possibilities means that up to seven players can rock together in Rock Band 3 for the ultimate social gaming experience.
Go Pro: Take Your Passion to the Next Level
Rock Band 3 empowers players to develop actual musical skills through the fun of fully scalable Rock Band Pro gameplay. Fans can dive in on the Easy setting to try out basic skills and work their way up to Expert for real mastery. Pro Drums supports three expansion cymbals, with gameplay differentiation between toms and cymbals. Pro Keys (Keyboard) features pitch-accurate keyboard performance across a two-octave range, displayed on an easy-to-read keyboard track. Pro Guitar features noted guitar and bass performances, available for play with either the new Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar simulated guitar controller from Mad Catz, or the Rock Band 3 Squier by Fender Stratocaster guitar controller that is a real guitar/controller hybrid. The Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster is a fully functional, full-sized, six-string electric guitar that also functions as a game controller.

The game arrived a couple of days later, I put it in my Xbox 360 for about 20 seconds, powered down, went into the front room and fired up the XboxOne, and lo and behold the tracks were ready for import immediately!
From what I had been reading, it could have taken up to 3 business days to recognize the tracks, however the 80+ songs were downloading and finished within minutes. It would have cost close to $200 to buy all these tracks, which I got for $15, so this is a no brainer.
If you like Rock Band 4, order this now, while some copies are still out there, and also while this is still being allowed by Harmonix. If I recall you will NOT be able to import after March 2017. I have also done the same thing with Rock Band 1 and 2, and also a few of the track packs.
1. Say bye-bye to Tour mode, it finally got the axe it deserved. Instead you now have a "Fans" system where you gain new fans after completing challenges. This replaces your career mode and on my end, I highly enjoy it over the old system. Plus it also includes Band Challenges so your friends can come realize how terrible their hand-eye coordination is with you.
2. Remember how you used to have to grind for cash just to buy that nifty little sweater? Not anymore, because there is no money in game. Now, most instruments and clothes are unlocked minus the exotic ones which are unlocked after completing challenges. However don't think you'll get the most flashy guitar/bass/drums/mic/clothes/rep without a little hard work first.
3. Speaking of things being unlocked, forget about cheat codes. You already have "No Fail" and "Breakneck Speed" unlocked and usable throughout the game. You can change them in song as well, but you'll have to restart the song to keep your score, mind you.
4. What's that? You say four instruments isn't enough?? Well clean out the closet you keep all your stuff in, because now you can use a keyboard and pretend you know how to play. You can also buy your own little stand for it, and yes, you can have all FIVE instruments playing at once. Never tried it personally because I only play Guitar pretending that I'm the world's next Slash/Santana/*insert your new age guitarist's name here*.
All in all I personally love the game. 9/10 only hate that I can't transfer the RB1/RB2 songs over but that's due to licensing and deducting a star would be irrelevant.
Although this product is very late into its life cycle that licensing for many of the older DLC tracks have expired or is likely to expire soon, there is still a blindingly large library of tracks to pick from at $1 or $2 depending on if they were released prior to or after. And unlike the Miracle Piano System that I barely touched as a child, this library includes hits for both young players and their parents. This collection can also be expanded on the cheap by exporting the tracks from the first two Rock Band games as well as the track packs from their respective system with the sole (and sad) exception of the Beatles game.
I might also want to stress that buyers will want to make sure that games you want to export from ship with a valid code, otherwise you're stuck with glorified demos.
It works with virtually every GH or RB controller released for their respective system as well as any USB microphone, which you can also find at your local thrift store for much cheaper than you can get online.
If I had one major gripe about Rock Band 3, it's that I only got into this series only a week or two before Harmonix stopped releasing official DLC, which means the appeal of the library will eventually fade apart from the occasional party with friends. Rock Band Network - their indie songs equivalent - is still supported only on the 360. With Harmonix clearly moving on from the franchise altogether, I also plan on moving onto trying real instruments with Rocksmith and Band Fuse. Perhaps I can finally stick with those longer than the Miracle Piano System.
