  • Chinese Democracy coming to Rock Band DLC

    Posted on December 16th, 2008 Shawn No comments

    We have been slow to posts over the past week, sorry. I guess “real” jobs, family life, and the holidays are taking their toll. So, let’s see if we can get back to new and interesting stuff…

    Guns N’ Roses (17 year in the making) album Chinese Democracy looks like it will make a DLC entrance on Rock Band soon. Are you shocked? I’m not. Are you excited? So-so for me, though I will buy it day one.

    First, we know that Shackler’s Revenge is on the RB2 disc. We have seen may bands that are on the RB2 disc getting full DLC albums released (Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, etc). I see the trend.
    Since Shackler’s made it’s world debut on RB2, it only makes sense that Axl and company made an exclusive to have the new album entirely made available after the Best Buy exclusive ended…which is likely over now, or soon.

    Also, the album is not selling well. Only 200k copies it’s first week, and peeked at #3 on Billboard….then sharply fell off the radar. So, the world’s most expensive album to make, is not reaping much in the way of rewards right now.

    Thanks to Wired, we get the rumor that the entire album may show up on Rock Band soon.

    Personally (and if Axl wants to make his money back), he needs, NEEDS to get any of the following albums on RB DLC. Appetite for Destruction, Use Your Illusion 1 & 2, GNR Lies. Get them on DLC, charge $2 (hell, charge $3 a song)…people will buy it.
