So the incredible lameness of the PS2 port of Rock Band finally forced my hand and I upgraded to the Xbox 360. And as for Wii owners rejoicing about the newly announced Rock Band Wii port, as I’ve learned, you should be careful what you ask for. :(
I have over $100 worth of Rock Band, GH2, and GH3 DLC associated with a particular Xbox Live account at work. I’d prefer not to re-buy that content for the Xbox at home.
With the help of a friend at work, I figured out that storing your Xbox live profile on a memory card is the way to go if you have multiple Xbox 360s. It allows you to use the MC as a sort of “dongle”. If I take the memory card to work and plug it in, I can access the DLC, and ditto at home. This works, but it’s schleppy.
But it looks like I can’t make a copy of Xbox live profile on a second memory card. Is this true? If so, that means I have to schlep the damn memory card back and forth from home to work every day just to get access to the DLC I paid for. I was sort of hoping against hope I could copy the profile to a second memory card, but it looks like profiles are “Move” only; you can’t copy them.
Ideas? Solutions? Am I just screwed?
Also, while I’m asking. Is it possible to somehow use a third party 2.5" hard drive instead of the ridiculously tiny little 20 GB model they sell you? EDIT: found the answer; if you buy a particular brand of HDD and are willing to dick around with a DOS mode drive firmware modifier, it is possible.
