Lego Rock Band is ONLY Offline

We had a chance to get into MTV headquarters and uncovered a few things about new DLC, but most importantly some news was un-earthed about the upcoming Lego Rock Band slated to release this November right before the holidays. It has been confirmed that Lego Rock Band will NOT have any online play when released. Also confirmed is the ability to import Lego Rock Band songs to your Rock Band 2 set list and vice versa with one minor/major caveat, any songs being imported into Lego Rock Band must be rated E for everyone, i.e. nothing with a mature theme can be played in Lego Rock Band.

Lego Rock Band is definitely geared to the children audience and the team over at Rock Band is making sure it stays a safe environment for young kids, which is good, but unfortunately anyone looking to rock out Lego style will get a semi-watered down experience. I am still looking forward to Lego Rock Band coming this holiday season but this set of news did put a small damper on thhings for me.

Does this affect your decision in any way or are you still grabbing more Lego love?
