ROCK BAND downloadable content and pricing announced (More awesome Metallica songs announced)

Posted on November 15, 2007

You're fingers may be hurting from trying to get past 5% playing DragonForce on expert in the new Guitar Hero game, but you may have forgotten, that ROCK BAND, the game made by the people who originally created Guitar Hero, is coming out next week.
We've already revealed the complete track listing for the game, and now GameSpot has gotten the scoop on the game's downloadable content. The game markers will offer those 3 packs we've come to expect from Guitar Hero, but for a cheaper $5.99 asking price (compared to GH's $6.49) and will also make single tracks available for download for $1.99. Game developers, Harmoix, have said future songs will be sold individually for as little as $.99, and as much as $2.99. The schedule of songs to be released looks something like this:
