Rock Band is going to make me buy an Xbox 360

Harmonix, creators of Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero II, have announced what will be the Xbox 360 killer app for me: Rock Band. The game, as the name suggests, allows you to sing, play the guitar, and bang on the drums with your friends in meatspace or online. There are plans to make new songs […]
