Harmonix and EA cross wires on Rock Band DLC pricing

Despite EA saying that Rock Band’s European tracks cost 160 MS Points both in a press release and an email yesterday, Harmonix has now claimed that songs will be priced in exactly the sames way as the US version – starting at 80 Points.

“It’s the same pricing, the exact same model as we have in the States,” Harmonix’s Rob Kay told Eurogamer. “Most songs are 160 Microsoft Points, and some of them are 80 Points – generally if they’re more like indie songs or something, we’ll put them in at 80 Points. So you’ll be paying the exact same price for DLC. There are two price brackets that we use globally, and the DLC will cost the same globally.”

Rock Band launches on May 23 in Europe, according to EA. But it might not. Who knows?
