Rock Band Disc Export Update is Live

Harmonix and MTV have sent out the good word that the Rock Band Disc Export Title update is now live and available through the Xbox 360. For those of you who’ve been living under a rock, the update will allow you to import the original 55 Rock Band songs for use in Rock Band 2.

Beginning today, September 4th, the title update will add an “export disc” tab under the extras option in the Rock Band menus, allowing owners of the original Rock Band to expand their Rock Band 2 library to include 55 tracks from the original Rock Band track list for the nominal fee of $4.99 (400 Microsoft Points)[1]. In addition, this patch is required for all future downloadable content releases for Rock Band. Previously purchased DLC will not be affected.

Harmonix has done an excellent job of providing a good mix of old and new songs from different genre’s as DLC for Rock Band‘s music library. The company is making sweet promises that players will have 500 songs available by the end of 2008. It seems like they’re playing my song.

That’s awesome they spent the time to relicense all those songs for rock band 2. $5 for the time and effort that must of took is fine by me.

I have to say that I think it is rediculous to have to pay anything extra for songs off a game disc that I have already purchased for $60. Even if they took the time and effort to make this happen, they are already making a killing, so why charge us? Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate that we are able to this, but dang! They want to take every penny they can……
