    Default AC~DC Rock Band Track Pack

    This is Rock Band at some of it's finest to date...

    Only place that had it in town was Wally World...$39.99 tho :-(

    It does have 18 master recordings from a Live show and the game is a standalone with quickplay, training ect..

    Even though I have been killing to play "Thunderstruck", I wont pay $40 to do it. Now if they release it for DLC, I'll buy it with MS Points.

    I brought our rental copy home from work a couple days ago, used the the 'one time use' code on the rear of the manual, and downloaded the tracks for use in Rock Band & Rock Band 2.

    The AC DC Live Album is probably some of the best charted work I've seen for Rock Band. Unfortunately, the Thunderstruck intro kicks my ass on expert difficulty... Doesn't help that its the 1st song as well.

    There's a code on the bac k of the manual? I had no idea it was there. If I could download the tracks via DLC for free, why the heck not lol.

    It will never be available as DLC on XBOX or PS3. And as for using the code to export on a rental copy, well it will work for the first person, but anytime after that when someone tries to export it again using the same code....the first user could be suspended from XBOX Live / PSN.

    walmart is the only place allowed to carry it becaus eof a pre existing agreement with ac/dc. and ac/dc doesnt believe in downloading therefore it won't be available as DLC either, they don't even have anythign available on itunes to downlaod.

    apparently what i read was incorrect ( http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2008/...-band-answers/ ) as EBGames is carrying it and have it in stock

    Not true. The code simply will not work. It'd be bad business sense of Microsoft or Sony to do something stupid like that. They know thousands of renters will use the code, and if they banned the 1st user afterwards, what do they gain? Nothing.

    No matter to me anyway, I ripped the page off and tossed it out after using the code. But for anyone else wanting to do the same thing, go ahead, its safe.

    That exclusiveness was US only, Canada anyone can sell it.

    20 Free DLC was supposedly already doen Tuesday for XBOX and tomorrow for PS3. Must consider you have to have your code for it and there's more "lag" in the distribution of said code...lolz

    To whoever has played it, is it worth the $40 to buy? I have called Blockbuster and Rogers and they dont have any so I cant rent it and lately I have been spending money on games that collect dust. I dont want to spend 40-50 bucks on a game that will collect dust.

    I thought almost every track was fun to play myself. I'm not in it for the challenge though, just the fun factor.
