Downloadable Game Content: Rock Band

April 22, 2008

Rock Band seems to have nailed this whole DLC thing. They have released their first entire album over the live servers. So far, Harmonix has sold over 8 million songs as downloadable add-on content. Why has Guitar Hero dropped the ball?

To tie this into the previous post, it’s pretty cool that Motley Crue debuted “Saints of Los Angeles” exclusively on Rock Band. Yet another example of value added by the distributor.

Also, on Rock Band – by releasing tracks online, can their be a Rock Band II? I mean, they can’t really add anything, the game mechanics are solid and there is a seemingly endless supply of new playable content.
