“We recently hit a significant milestone,” claimed Chris Rigopulos, Harmonix’s VP of business development. “More than 100 million songs have been downloaded for Rock Band. It’s amazing.”
According to Chris, while plenty have claimed the 'band' genre is dying, Rock Band as a platform continues to attract strong numbers each month.
"With all of the negative press around the band genre," he begins, "you might be surprised to learn that we still see more than a million unique users log on each month to play Rock Band and to pick up new music – and it’s not the same million players each month. Rock Band is a game that people can put down for a month to play Portal 2, or whatever new release captures their attention, and then fire up Rock Band again."
The interview, over at Game Informer, is a highly informative one - especially for those fans who have persisted with the Rock Band franchise. Well worth checking out.
