What can I say, other than, It?s about time? My RB friends live and die by the exclusives that make the Rock Band experience different from other band games. I can see everyone with the game downloading this new music pack when it debuts.
The people that I know, who play RB on an almost daily practice, love to download music for the game, regardless of genre. I personally can?t get into the music games nor do I have the space for a ton of plastic instruments. Hit up the break to get prices, release dates and other Rock Band related news.
The press release was long so I am posting up a few bullet points that I feel you need to know.
