Rockband Surpasses 100 Million Downloads

The entire number of songs downloaded across the Rock Band series has now officially broken the 100 million mark. Harmonix vice president Chris Rigopulos revealed the news today and was quoted as saying, “With all of the negative press around the band genre, 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,”

The Rock Band franchise currently offers gamers over 2700 tracks from over 900 artists across a variety of mediums. The numbers continue with over 5 millions accounts having downloaded a song from those offered up by Harmonix.

Despite being unable to comment on the percentage of online players downloading songs Rigopulos did say the following, “I can’t tell you the exact figure, and it varies by platform, but it’s very high relative to other games with add-on content.”

He also revealed that there is currently no plans to release a Rock Band 4 in 2011 as Rock Band 3 is a “big game” already. Although Harmonix do look set to make some announcements at E3 2011 this June.

Despite a long absence from gaming, during which he spent many a night reminiscing about the glory days on Halo 2, Matty is now back online smashing his way through Black Ops and soon enough Gears of War 3 and Battlefield 3.
