    Okay, so what do we all know thusfar about Transformers: Battle Universe for Hasbro's new "Netjet" game system?

    ATTENTION!!!!!
    After much trial and error, I finally called Hasbro consumer affairs (1888-8NETJET/1-888-863-8538). I was told that the NETJET system is not compatible with MS Windows VISTA as of yet, and that Hasbro is currently working to release one of two things: either a software update to the NetJet, or an entire new Netjet system. That's all the more info that I was able to obtain.

    Transformers:Battle Universe $19.99 bundled with system
    Transformers: Battle Universe $9.99 packed alone (with 3 additional unlockable games)

    1-2 player style fighting game with 10 playable characters and 5 different levels

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime G1 (Masterpiece)
    Optimus Prime Movie
    Bumblebee Movie
    BEASTWARS OPTIMUS PRIMAL
    ANIMATED OPTIMUS PRIME


    Decepticons:
    Megatron G1 (Masterpiece)
    Starscream G1 (Masterpiece)
    Megatron Movie
    BEASTWARS MEGATRON
    ANIMATED MEGATRON


    I just checked it out at Wal-mart last night and confirmed the prices.


    Now come the questions:
    -who are the other characters? ALREADY ANSWERD
    -can/will more be added later? (is the game expandable via download?)
    -can you save your game? ALREADY ANSWERED
    -if saving is possible, can you save more than one file? NO
    -is there online play? (wireless interw3b?) NO
    -are the alternate color schemes for any characters? NO
    -is there any unlockable content, cheatcodes, or easter eggs? ALREADY ANSWERED
    -what music is in the game? (g1 theme? generic armadaverse toy commercial theme?) ALREADY ANSWERED

    I'm sure there will be more questions later on, I just can't think of any at the moment.

    -who are the other characters?

    I've also seen Anime Optimus Prime (haven't unlocked him yet) and have BW Megatron I haven't seen the others yet. I did unlock the worlds Space Bridge and Future Detroit though.

    -can/will more be added later? (is the game expandable via download?)

    Not via download, you have to unlock the extras.

    -can you save your game?

    Games are always saved automatically. However if you move the NetJet to another PC, you start over.

    -if saving is possible, can you save more than one file?

    See above.

    -is there online play? (wireless interw3b?)

    No.

    -are the alternate color schemes for any characters?

    No.

    -is there any unlockable content, cheatcodes, or easter eggs?

    No cheat codes or easter egss that I know of.

    -what music is in the game? (g1 theme? generic armadaverse toy commercial theme?

    The Ark World has the Cybertron theme, new themes for the other worlds. I especially like the Space Bridge theme.

    Yes, at Wal-marts everywhere.
    I have yet to check anywhere else, but rest assured, if wal-marts has it, then it's probably everywhere else too.

    It's also been out at Target for about a month or so. For some reason, no one's made a headline about it being out.

    That is why I am so suprised. I figured that would definitely be a headline!

    This was from a PM I received from Backscatter.

    Backscatter, are there really 9 levels? I put that in my PM because when I saw the game at my local TARGET, the back of the packaging said "10 playable characters" & "9 levels". Apparently there are only 5. That's what HTS's listing says.

    From what I've been able to gather in this thread and this other thread:http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=154851,

    We have for characters:

    1. MP Optimus Prime
    2. Classics Optimus Prime
    3. Beast Wars Optimus Primal (1st gorilla)
    4. Movie BumbleBee
    5. Movie Optimus Prime
    6. MP Megatron
    7. MP Starscream
    8. Beast Wars Megatron (1st T-Rex)
    9. Movie Megatron
    10. TRANSFORMERS:ANIMATED Optimus Prime

    Now could someone assist in helping me list all 5 levels?


    We know of:

    1. The Ark
    2. The Space Bridge
    3. Future Detroit
    4. ???-Mission City-??? See pics in this thread link: http://www.thetf.net/forum_posts.asp?TID=9955&PN=1&TPN=1
    5. ?????UNKNOWN?????


    And where can I buy the System bundled with the game?

    ATTENTION!!!!! just picked one up, and it worked just fine, until I went to play the game (tf bu). I got the following error:

    the groove player configuration file does not specify an application to load

    can anyone help me here to figure out what this means, or how to remedy this?

    there is nothing online about this error that I can find. I've even been to hasbro's site and can't find a thing on it. Perhaps the TF game doesn't like Windows Vista?

    "Backscatter, are there really 9 levels? "

    If there are, I haven't been able to find them yet. :( 

    "Can anyone help me here to figure out what this means, or how to remedy this?"

    I got a similar error when I first tired Netjet. I had to use the Dell driver reset tool to fix things. It's run error free ever since.

    Looks like the packaging I saw was incorrect (or I was (>_<)):

    ^This, from HasbroToyShop.com, says there are only 5 levels, not 9. My bad.

    We know of 3, the Ark, Space Bridge, and Future Detroit.

    Then there is the possible Mission City (see my previous post).

    Could the 5th level be from Beast Wars?

    *Goes to update previous post*

    well, it's not stellar compared to namcos soul series, but it's enough to make me glad I spent $20.00 on it, and keeps me entertained. Even if I must use my wife's PC to play it.

    I saw the TF key today, but still only spotting the system bundled with the Bubble game.

    If anyone was gonna buy Kart Racer, it looks like a cheap knockoff of Nexon's Kart Rider(down to the art style), which is free to download and play online.
