Harmonix has finally worked out all the legal and technical trouble that was holding up Rock Band 3 imports to Rock Band 4. The feature is live now on PS4, with Xbox One expected to hit very soon. So the only question left is, how do you do it? Thankfully Harmonix has supplied a handy list of steps to follow, which are actually pretty quick and easy to pull off. We’ve conglomerated them all together into the following guide on how to import songs from Rock Band 3 into Rock Band 4.
First up you need to own a copy of Rock Band 3 either physically or digitally. Harmonix has an automated process for determining if you own the game or not. This process isn’t exactly known at this time, so if you have the game and it doesn’t register you’ll have to contact Harmonix to get it sorted out. We also aren’t sure if you can get it if you played the game once long ago, but no longer own it. Unfortunately you’ll just have to check for yourself and see if it registered. Of course, you will have to own Rock Band 3 on PS3 to import to PS4 and on Xbox 360 for Xbox One imports.
Now, as far as the process goes, you’ll have to load up Rock Band 4 to get started. On both PS4 and Xbox One you will go to the Get More Songs option, where you should see the new choice of Exports. Choose this and you should see Rock Band 3, then select RB3 Disc Export Pack. Go through this purchase process and all 83 songs from Rock Band 3 will be added to your account for download.
This process is almost the same on PS4 as it is on Xbox One, so just follow the steps above and you’ll be good to go. It is currently available on PS4 in the US, with Xbox One to follow shortly. Europe will start being able to import tracks to Rock Band 4 on Monday, December 14th.
