The popularity of the game is definitely on the decline. I think for most gamers, the novelty has worn off, but I personally see it a different way. The mechanics or basic premise of the gameplay isn't what drives it. For me, it's always been about the music. As such, it's a game I can see myself playing regularly for a long while.

I just hope that it doesn't fade into such a small, niche market that labels/artists no longer consider authoring DLC tracks as something worthwhile.

I still play it for the music as well. I think RB3 will revive the user base for a while. As long as HMX keeps backwards/forwards compatibility alive we should be fine...

The speculation that I've read is that there will be more additions to the release before it goes live. Not sure what though...
