In yet another illustration of the impact of video games on rock music, the makers of the ROCK BAND video game have announced that they have sold over 2.5 million games since it hit retail just eight weeks ago.
"Our goal with ROCK BAND was to create an entirely new way for people to interact with the music they love," stated MTVN MUSIC GROUP/LOGO/FILMS Pres. VAN TOFFLER. "The incredible response to the downloadable content we've released to date motivates us even more to establish this platform as a way for people to discover new, up and coming artists through the game -- in addition to delivering great game play experiences set to the music of mega-artists."
