Pay $15 or forever hold your peace
Here’s some housekeeping that will probably fall on deaf ears. Any committed Rock Bandplayer took care of it long ago. Anyone who hasn’t probably won’t care enough to rush this through in the coming hours.
Alas, here goes anyway: It’s the last day to export your Rock Band 3songs into Rock Band 4/Rivals. The license expires on December 1, 2020.
For those who want make a last-second just-in-the-nick-of-time export, you’ll need a copy of Rock Band 3and $15. Harmonix’s systems need to check that you’re a “verified purchaser” of Rock Band 3and then the export costs $15. The process is outlined on this very old blog post.
You had five years to push this through, but now you only have a few more hours. If this PSA helps anyone out, you’re a procrastinator to the max. Get it done now though. Without the export, the only way to play Rock Band 3games will be inside actual Rock Band 3. Your library deserves better.
On December 1st, the Rock Band 3 Export is expiring. We know itâ€™s a bummer, but you still have time to purchase an export key. If you have owned and played Rock Band 3 on the same console family or profile and want to export a bunch of rad songs to Rock Band 4 â€“ act soon! pic.twitter.com/dy7Rit1oDx
