"Before you start deleting the dozens of tracks you've downloaded for the first Rock Band, know that RB2 features ground-breaking cross-title compatibility. There is no distinction between Rock Band 1 and Rock Band 2 DLC. Any DLC you've previously downloaded will instantly work with Rock Band 2 and all DLC will continue to work with the original game from here and into eternity."

Wow, Harmonix are pretty brave. They know RB2 will be very good, so they don't have to make any cheap tricks to make it sell. Wow.

it looks like PS3 owners are getting the shaft from Harmonix for a couple months. Unfortunately that means our holiday season will be jam packed with games.
