Well that nails RB3's coffin for me . I was going to purchase Friday but if the dlc don't work then this has saved me a load of dosh . i have probably 70% of the dlc & whilst i didn't mind coughing up for pro mode on some if all further stuff don't work with RB2 then its lost me as a fan . GH has been a stagnant bore since GH3 & now RB3 set to screw me over .
Typical EA game i suppose . The yearly £75 of downloads for Tiger woods should have been warning they would find an excuse not to support its back catalogue.

All previous DLC for RB & RB2 works on RB3 - it's just the new DLC that won't work on the older titles due to it having the new Pro modes, Vocal harmonies etc included.
In fairness that's no different to not being able to use MW2's map packs on CoD4.

The point raised in the analysis is very important, they really are cutting off a significant revenue stream, unless people just aren't buying that much DLC any more and they're trying to encourage RB3 sales.

Out of interest does anyone know what the sales were like in the US and Canada for RB3?
