Harmonix patches PS3 version of Rock Band 2

Latest patch adds wireless SingStar microphone functionality

Rock Band 2 Lead Designer Dan Teasdale announced via the PlayStation blog today that a patch for Rock Band 2 on the PlayStation 3 is scheduled for today.

The patch addresses several issues, but the big ticket item is the Rock Band Network Store Support. This feature will make select songs available in-game once the Rock Band Network goes live. Another big update included with the patch is wireless SingStar microphone functionality.

Lesser updates include an improved "Sort by Stars" function. The first part of this fix makes the function available in Quickplay; the second part fixes it so that players don't have to beat a previous high score to record star ratings on songs.

Rock Band Network is currently in closed beta, but a toolset is available for users. Harmonix hopes to launch the service early this year.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
