Cambridge, MA - March 20, 2008 – Red hot music video game Rock Band continues to fly off shelves and satisfy music fans and gamers voracious appetite for rock as more than 6 million game levels based on songs have been purchased since its launch on November 20, 2007. With an impressive weekly stream of downloadable content since launch and an unmatched offering of over 70 songs available for purchase to date, Rock Band has gone six times platinum featuring a diverse selection of artists ranging from classic rock to up and coming, emerging acts.

“Thank you to the music lovers who have helped Rock Band reach an incredible milestone of over 6 million purchased downloads at such an early stage,” stated by Paul DeGooyer, SVP DVD, Gaming and Audio, MTV. “The success of Rock Band downloadable content to date firmly reinforces our vision and its potential as a platform for music discovery. By empowering players with the ability to customize their Rock Band library with a rapidly growing selection of rock artists and songs on a weekly basis and adding great new features such as the in-game music store, we are thrilled to give fans more ways to enhance and enjoy their Rock Band experience.”

As an ever evolving platform for players to experience music like never before, Harmonix and MTV Games also announced the release of a software update this week which features the new in-game Rock Band Music Store. This innovative new feature allows Rock Band players to preview and purchase downloadable individual music tracks and packs from the vast selection of offerings available to date without ever leaving the game as they build their own custom Rock Band library. The Rock Band Music Store has a user-friendly interface to streamline and enhance the music shopping experience and will be available via a free download through the Xbox LIVE® and PLAYSTATION®Network this week. Accessible from the main menu, the Music Store now lets you view, purchase, and sort all downloadable songs tracks by Artist, Song Title, Genre, Albums, Pack, and more! You can also view album art, listen to song previews, as well as check out detailed information about a song, such as difficulty for each instrument.
