The Who's Super Bowl Performance Hits Rock Band Store Sunday Night

We don't usually announce DLC for music games, but in this case, we felt it newsworthy.  Legendary band The Who is playing the halftime show at the Super Bowl (which is touted as taking place in South Florida, not Miami, for some reason).  Perhaps Pete will be smashing his guitar on stage as millions make a run for more chips, dip, and tasty beverages.

Rock Band Network Coming Tomorrow

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Rock Band Network will launch tomorrow.  I guess the rumors of "Early 2010" should have been "Extremely Early 2010".  Rock Band Network is a service by which any user can create and upload their own music into the Rock Band store.  I'm sure all sorts of smaller bands are anxious to get started with this, but bigger bands like Creed and Evanescence are rumored to make their music available via Rock Band Network.  The official Rock Band forums have a fan-made list of confirmed bands and songs, and it's well worth a look.

1000 Songs Available as Rock Band DLC

The Rock Band series of games is arguably the best in the genre.  The first Rock Band pioneered the full band experience.  The sequel brought us the disc export feature, allowing you to play previous disc-based songs using the latest and greatest game engine.  The Beatles Rock Band is the best band-centric game ever.  And LEGO Rock Band is far from just another easy cash grab, full of features that make it appealing to gamers of all ages.

Rock Band 2 Patch Adds Wireless Mic Support

If there was one thing holding Rock Band 2 back from being the perfect music game, it would have to be the lack of support for wireless microphones.  A patch has just been released that fixes this problem, allowing rockers to use the Lips microphones (also recently released seperately) in a fully wireless environment.  We're pleased with the addition of this feature, but curious as to why it took so long.  After all, wireless mic support was announced last year!
