How Harmonix sparked the DLC revolution with ‘Rock Band’

VGW's Brian Shea: "The notion of downloadable content is commonplace in today’s landscape of launch-day DLC and season passes, but prior to 2007, to have a legitimate, laid-out plan to support a console game post-launch was not a common occurrence. Harmonix, a company that was in the midst of a transition away from the most popular franchise in the industry at the time, Guitar Hero, had a vision for a brand new IP that would eventually revolutionize the concept of downloadable content." (Culture, EA, Green Day: Rock Band, Harmonix, Industry, MTV Games, PS3, Rock Band, Rock Band 3, Tech, The Beatles: Rock Band, Wii, Xbox 360)
