Full list of songs/packs: http://www.rockband....saleGraphic.pdf

Some 1100 tracks and albums/packs will be 50% off starting tomorrow. Lots of good stuff in there.

All songs compatible with Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz. Discounts will be available on 360, PS3 and Wii platforms.

Here is the expected timing for the roll out of discounts on different consoles in different regions. This is a HUGE update (seriously, we're discounting more DLC than most games have ever released) so there are a lot of moving pieces and things may not go 100% to plan, but we'll update if things look like they're changing.

Tuesday September 18th

Xbox 360 (worldwide) will be updating in a gradual roll out, and all pricing is expected to update by noon ET.

Nintendo should be updating at the same time that Wii DLC usually goes live.

Sony America (SCEA) is expected to update at the same time that PS3 DLC usually goes live.

Wednesday September 19th

Sony Europe (SCEE / Sony International) is expected to update when PS3 DLC usually goes live.


If you check in and content is not appearing with the new pricing, sit tight and it may be updating shortly. We'll be keeping an eye on things on our end to make sure we catch any content that slips through the cracks. Enjoy!

About time. I guess PS3 is involved since prices are in real money, not spacebucks.

I don't know how I'll choose what to buy. So much in there I'd like to get. Not enough points.

I'll copy that info on the rollout to the OP. Thanks Sway.

Ugh I just spent $20 on a bunch of these songs when RB blitz came out. Guess I'll pick up a few more now...

Ehhhhh... I don't even know the next time I'm gonna even think about playing any of these games.

I'm probably gonna pass, but this is awesome nonetheless.

I realized this past weekend that I purchased/have over 1100 songs by myself.

If I had waited for a sale like this I would've saved a few hundred dollars easily. =\

Awesome sale. Makes me a little sad that I own just about everything I'd want off of the RB music store anyway, but i'm sure there's a couple songs left for me to pick up. :D

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

There's always.. always more songs left to pick up, lol.

Is this the first sale like this ever or do these happen frequently? I've never noticed one.

Ouch!!! I have just about 1,000 songs but did that with a game share group. So yeah, you've probably spent $2,000+ on rock band songs....THAT'S NUTS!!! We were picking up songs for $0.20, nothing can beat that

Basically, all the DLC is preRB3, so yes.

None of the sale tracks have keys support. The sale is specifically for the DLC that came out before RB3, none of which have keys or vocal harmonies.

Ugh, that's weak.

I haven't picked up any new DLC track since xmas so I figured I would be able to pick something up. But if its stuff before 2010 I'm pretty much set.

I wouldn't call it weak, but if you have been buying every track you wanted as they were released, then this sale won't help you (just like nearly every sale on dlc). I think this is mainly for the people who just picked up blitz or need to fill in their catalog. This really is a crazy sale IMO.

I guess PS3 is involved since prices are in real money, not spacebucks.
