Selected Rock Band DLC On Sale
Pick up some songs on the cheap for a limited time.
Harmonix and MTV aren't having any trouble selling downloadable content for Rock Band. The world over, armchair musicians build their set lists to create one unique to their own eclectic tastes. But the sales are still missing the coveted "cheapskate" demographic, which a new, fast-food-supported promotion should solve.
Major Nelson informs us this week that McDonalds is sponsoring a promotion to drop two songs per week to 80 Microsoft points ($1 USD) rather than the usual 160 points ($2). There will be a new duo of songs every week until June. And rather than force you to guess at which tracks could be discounted and end up spending more than you have to, the schedule of songs to be discounted has already been released.
- "crushcrushcrush" -- Paramore
- "Rock and Roll Band" -- Boston
- "Shockwave" -- Black Tide
- "Sugar Magnolia" -- Grateful Dead
- "We Care a Lot" -- Faith No More
- "All The Small Things" -- Blink 182
- "Gimme Three Steps" -- Lynyrd Skynyrd
- "Dirty Little Secret" -- All-American Rejects
Harmonix confirmed Tuesday afternoon via the Rock Band forums that the discounted prices will also be available to PlayStation 3 owners, though it appears the drops have yet to take effect in the PlayStation Store. Perhaps the discounts will come with the weekly PlayStation Store update on Thursday.
