Xbox Live Launching Individualised Music Game Stores

Microsoft makes searching for downloadable songs for your rhythm games much easier today, with the introduction of individualised music game stores covering all the major music games.

Expected to launch later today, the Xbox Live music games stores will make browsing the latest releases for games like Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero much more convenient. Rather than having to scroll through an endless list of tracks, you'll be able to search, sort and preview clips, much in the same way you can from inside each individual game, only without having to actually spin it up.

Games benefiting from the dedicated music stores include Guitar Hero 5, Guitar Hero World Tour, Band Hero, Lips, Lips: Number One Hits, Lego Rock Band, The Beatles: Rock Band, and everything else Rock Band. Sorry, Rock Revolution fans. I guess it just wasn't meant to be.


    It was never meant to be for Rock Revolution. It came out last. All the songs were covers. You even needed another peripheral from ANOTHER GAME to actually get the game working.

    The second some reviewer presses START, he just felt the crappiness attack.

    Hot on the heels of the Singstar store release. The guitar hero program is quite good, being able to preview a track at the press of a button and continue browsing is very handy. Unlike the Rock Band program which seems to be a perfect copy of the store from the game (even the image underscan which puts a black frame around the edge of the screen), including only being able to preview a song once you select it.. then you wait.. then maybe it plays.

    Well I must say, good show Microsoft, good show.
