How’d Harmonix Do That? A Look At Rock Band's DLC

Game Informer - A few days ago, Harmonix pulled the plug on its internally developed Rock Band DLC. Don McLean’s “American Pie” broke the 281-week streak of content for the game, an impressive figure by any measure. Just because they managed to pull it off, don’t assume it was easy. I wrote a feature in the upcoming issue of Game Informer about some of the behind-the-scenes wrangling it took to work with musicians and publishers. That was only part of the story. Read on to learn about some of the technical hurdles the studio had to overcome. (Harmonix, PS3, Rock Band, Xbox 360)
