Rock Band content priced

Dated and detailed, too.

Harmonix, EA and MTV have finally told us how much it will cost to download extra music for Rock Band, and isn't an arm and a leg.

According to GameSpot, all we will be shelling out for three-pack bundles is 440 Points (GBP 3.74 / EUR 5.12), while individual tracks will set us back between 80 (GBP 0.68 / EUR 0.93) and 240 Points (GBP 2.04 / EUR 2.79). Unfortunately nothing has been decided for full albums - although we expect something like 1200 Points as the asking price (GBP 10.20 / EUR 13.96).

Developer Harmonix also rolled out is content plan for the weeks following US launch on 20th November
