130 million Rock Band songs downloaded, as DLC ends

"It was totally insane to expect people to drop $150 on a video game," Harmonix recounts as it releases a video in tribute of its final Rock Band DLC release. And yet, not only did millions of people join in on the Rock Band craze, they bought DLC. Lots of it.
