No Rock Band This Year as DLC Tracks Hit 100 Million Downloads

Remember when Nick was talking a bunch of shit about how he was like the world's greatest at Standard Keys in Rock Band 3? Yeah, don't mess with him. When Nick talks shit you better believe it. He doesn't talk shit very often.
So now I'm stuck waiting around for Rock Band 4's cowbell peripheral. I know I won't be top of the drums, guitar or keyboard leaderboards anytime soon. Vocals? HAHA!
It looks like I won't be able to dominate with my plastic cowbell anytime soon though as Rock Band 4 won't be appearing at retail this year. Speaking with Game Informer, Harmonix VP of Strategy and Business Chris Rigopulos said that the developer will still be generating DLC content for the Rock Band Music Store:
If DLC is such a compelling strategy for Harmonix to pursue, you can bet that the downloadable side of Rock Band is moving strong. In fact, the Rock Band store recently surpassed 100 million song downloads. Big names like Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, and Peter Frampton will be coming to the service in May too. As a newly independent developer, Harmonix is pretty pleased:
You know, a lot of companies find the right time to announce their games at E3. E3 2011 is coming up soon so stick with Game Revolution and we'll get you all the latest news leading up to and throughout the biggest conference in gaming.
