  • 'Rock Band' Numbers Huge

    If there was any doubt as to the tremendous success of EA's juggernaut music game Rock Band, yesterday's quarterly conference call from EA parent Viacom should remove it: The title has sold 4.8 million copies, led to 18 million paid song downloads and books another 1 million paid downloads every nine days.

    We used to think DragonForce's "Through The Fire and Flames" on expert guitar in Guitar Hero III was about as difficult as a music game could get, but there's a new contender: "Young Man Blues" by the Who on expert drums. This youtube drummer is fantastic; he five-stars it, but we doubt anyone will hit 100%.
