Mad Catz Discusses Rock Band 4's Instrument Improvements

Excited for the new Rock Band 4 coming out later this year? Thankfully, we have Mad Catz producing some quality controllers this time around for fans to really rock out on. With reduced technical issues to deal with, the developers reiterated that they didn't want to innovate for innovation's sake. While the devices have been upgraded slightly since the last title, the same general look and feel of each will feel familiar. For longtime fans of Rockband, all these new changes sound very promising.

Harmonix Shuts Down Rock Band Network

Five or six years ago, you couldn't walk into someone's house without tripping over a few sets of plastic game instruments. Rock Band and Guitar Hero were everywhere, even on mobile devices, and thousands of songs were rolled out to make sure we kept pretending we were rock stars. But now, another big nail has been driven into the coffin. The Rock Band Network is dead.

Rock Band DLC to End April 2nd

It seemed like the days of plastic instruments cluttering up living rooms would never end. On April 2nd, however, Harmonix has announced that DLC support for Rock Band 3 will be terminated as the team moves on to other projects. The songs aren't going anywhere, and sales will continue to occur, but new content is officially at an end. Not only is it a sobering reminder of an era coming to pass, but it also marks the longest DLC support for a franchise in video gaming history, boasting over 275 weeks of continuous releases.
