Music Industry Benefits From Rock Band

Thanks to Rock Band on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, music sales have certainly been revving up. According to USA Today, virtual rockers downloaded around 2.5 million songs in the eight weeks since the game launched on the above gaming consoles.
Rock Band already includes 58 songs to play, but users can download more from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, as each song ranges in price from 99 cents to $3. The most popular songs include those from Metallica, The Police, and Black Sabbath. It's no surprise that musicians and bands are lobbying to get their songs on the game. I can honestly say I'm already addicted to songs that I continually hear from Guitar Hero III!

I'm not surprised. Both games introduce people to awesome songs which they otherwise might not have known. I was lucky enough to be brought up with older parents who introduced me to such music, so I was thrilled hearing the songs on these games.
