The Super Bowl Half-Time Show is always a big to do. And while I haven’t been asked back as a performer for a number of years now (Don’t ask!), I still find the whole spectacle rather fascinating. Now, normally the break period of a sporting event isn’t the kind of thing you bring up on a gaming site, but this year’s show features something specifically game related.
As you may have heard, legendary rockers The Who will be performing at this year’s Super Bowl, and to mark the occasion, Rock Band fans will be able to download a specially recorded version of the performance following the big game. “The Who Super Bowl S-mashup” will cost $1.99, and, presumably, include bits and pieces from the band’s impressive catalogue.
Of course, most of their best songs have already appeared in Rock Band in master recording form. So I guess the question is: why would I want to play a compilation of abridged 2010 versions of Who songs when I could play master recordings of entire songs?
