During a PAX East panel yesterday, Harmonix revealed that Rock Band users have downloaded 130 million songs for their living room gigs, a figure which is up from 100 million in 2011.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has told the BBC that the band would possibly consider a music game centered around the band, especially seeing as how the Beatles did it.
“I think we’d consider it,” he said. “Everyone’s looking at new ways of selling the music because the business of selling records has almost disappeared.”
The source article for this a bit old, what with Bill Wyman moaning about plastic instruments and such, but you may have skimmed over the Pink Floyd bit, so there it is.
We think the band should just allow Rock Band 2 to offer up Wish You Were Here in it’s entirety instead.

Rock Band’s bad. Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason say it stops people learning how to actually play musical instruments.
“It encourages kids not to learn, that’s the trouble,” Wyman told the BBC.
“It makes less and less people dedicated to really get down and learn an instrument. I think is a pity so I’m not really keen on that kind of stuff.”
Mason described the likes of Rock Band and Guitar Hero as “interesting new developments,” but added:
“It irritates me having watched my kids do it – if they spent as much time practising the guitar as learning how to press the buttons they’d be damn good by now.”
We’re saying nothing. You’ll be able to press buttons along to Beatles songs in return for hundreds of pounds tomorrow, don’t forget.
