All the downloadable content for other games can be used both online and off, so I trust it will be the same for Ultramix.

And if you don't like enough of the songs to get it, then wait until a better pack comes out. And maybe even further down the road as many packs are made, they'll start letting you pick and choose from the current songs instead.

I think $1 a song is not bad at all....i mean yes they are about half the time of a normal song you would pay for from Apple's service but they do come with background movies i assume and the step charts...you aren't just paying for a song...so it's worth it. I do think once there are licensed songs in some these packs the prices will jump anywhere from $10 to $15 dollars depending on the licenses.... it's just too bad Konami doesn't try to implement this feature in PS2...in the US i mean...

Oh wellz...i'll still get to play the songs regardless of owning an X-Box or not...that's an absolute...so i'm not so sad...


Well in order for the music to be legal, five songs off a legal music lace like iTunes would cost $5, and you're paying $5 for DDR songs which include the steps, the back ground movies, the banner, the background picture...so when you stop and think about it, it's a good deal, really!

There HAS to be a way to get these packs for free...

People need to stand up and say that songpacks shouldn't cost ANYTHING. I know $1 isn't horrible for a song but if you're going to pay $40+ for a game, that should be its final cost -- no add-ons, no continuing committment of cash except for the online service itself.

I fully expect online tournaments to exist where the winners get all the songpacks that exist and will EVER exist for free.

Uh, no, there DOESN'T need to be a way to get the songpacks free. In case you ignored the posts, the 5 dollars is to buffer the licensing fees for songs. How about you stop complaining and suffer if you don't like it?

In a somewhat related matter... and I doubt the sincerity of this, especially with content already available, but why have several online sites just suddenly changed the ship date from the 18th to the first week of December?

Unless we hear differently from OoC, I'm tending to believe the Nov. 18th release date. What possible reason could there be to delay it?

My Konami sources say the release date is still the 18th. Nothing has changed.

Now that that's out of the way:

Why does there HAVE to be? Because you're too cheap to pay for things?

Who is forcing you to buy songpacks? Who?

Here, choose between these two options:
1) 5-song songpacks you can (but do not have to) buy for a low cost
2) No songpacks or add-ons ever.

Which would you rather have?

And I fully expect someone reading this post to buy me a IIDX 9th Style machine. Because that's just as likely.

I konw this is sorta off topic...but oh well...i really dont think that online tournaments would be a good idea at all...because it's just human nature to out do another person...in whatever way possible...even making one resort to using the x-box controller instead of the dance pad...i dunno, that's just my opinion...

then if that was the case DDR would be bad buttocks popular. if people actully did go and buy all those. there would be like new versions of ddr comming out all the time. i think it is an awesome idea to charge a buck per song.

That song is worth the $5 all by itself, and ensures that I will in fact be getting this...

I believe you just might be. There's starter kits at the store, you buy one, you follow the instructions on screen (including entering your credit card info) and you're set. XBox Live games will have an option clearly marked in their menus saying "Download Updates" or the such, so as long as you can read, you can easily setup XBox Live and Ultramix.

Well, first you'll need a broadband connection.

Next, you need to purchase an Xbox Live Starter Kit at your fav. game store. Check the price; the updated version is $70, but you can still find the older ones for $50. The only difference is the games that are included. You could, instead of buying the starter kit, use the two month free trial that comes with Ultramix, but you still have to buy the Communicator for $30 if you want to talk.

As far as configuring XBL goes, just pop in the CD that comes with the kit. You will need a Credit Card, but other than that you just fill out forms like your name and address and you pick a Gamertag. XBL will automatically detect your network settings; you may have to do some playing around with numbers there, but for the most part it's sufficient.

And that should just about do it. Pop in Ultramix, sign onto Live, and your set biggrin.gif

I was getting ultramix but then after reading these post.......
I dont think Ill waste my money on this........
It has a good list, and it has a good price for songs, but I dont have
X-BOX LIVE.......
And I will never get it because of my mom........

Only if they sold the songs at local game store and buy them through discs then save it onto your x-box.......

and also if they people say people can borrow the disc and ripoff Konami then why not use a one time use disc if they have any

But i can only wish



i think you can buy game cards that give u 12 months of Xbox live subscription so then you wouldnt have to use a credit card....if thats your moms problem...BTW i think they are 50$

You still need a credit card, no matter what. It's part of the signup process.

Yup, they require a credit card because the billing system is automatic. They use that credit card to renew your subscription and also to purchase downloadable content. When you download updates for Ultramix or anything else, they prompt you whether or not you want to pay for the download. After that, they don't ask for new billing information, they just use the CC# they have on record. In other words, you're not going to easily rip them off.
