Another new pack of songs to download for Rock Band


The day before yesterday, we had a news report regarding some new Rock Band songs. Today, however, Electronic Arts is releasing one complete downloadable and playable album of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the Xbox Live Marketplace. This concerns the album “Blood Sugar *** Magik” of which only one song is missing in the package: the track “Give It Away”. The reason why that number is not in between? The track was already available in Rock Band 2 and is therefore not playable in Rock Band.

The package, consisting of sixteen songs, can be downloaded from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1600 Microsoft Points. You can also buy the tracks separately at a rate of 160 Microsoft Points each.

Rock Band is a game that has to transfer the musical childhood dream in a virtual form to the next-gen consoles. Rock Band is being developed by Harmonix, a developer who was partly responsible for the Guitar Hero series. The game can be played with four people who use controllers in the form of instruments (microphone, two guitars and a drum kit) to imitate music from major rock stars. The vast majority of the songs contain heavy rock, of course, but genres such as classic and country are also included.

Rock Band has been released for the Xbox 360. Versions for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and Wii will follow later this year.
