Thats all music game should do from now on. Just sell DLC. I think most don't care that kurt cobain or the beatles are in a game as much as they do of a Nirvana or beatles song being in the game. All pubs and devs should just gather up new license agreement and release all new songs as DLC. That way the consumer can decide what songs they want and what song they don't.

The decline in hardware sell should be obvious, most people have a living room full of guitar, drums, and mics already!

Im still sitting on my Rock Band 2. im not interested in the Beatles. If Rock Band 3 where to release then I'd be all over it :)

Perhaps its Guitar Hero thats showing a decline, its on its 5th major release and has 20 smaller versions. Thats rediculous.
