Harmonix concludes 'planned' Rock Band: Unplugged DLC

MTV Games confirms PSP installment of rhythm game has no new content releases in store for the foreseeable future.


When MTV Games and Harmonix announced Rock Band: Unplugged for the PSP, much to-do was made of the game's in-game store. A first for the PSP, the in-game store allowed Unplugged owners to buy and download new songs for the portable rhythm game in a manner similar to how new content is delivered to the console editions of the game. Unfortunately, that store isn't likely to see any new additions in the near future.

MTV Games has confirmed for GameSpot that Harmonix does not currently have any plans to continue releasing downloadable songs for Rock Band: Unplugged on the PSP. However, the publisher did note that Harmonix may add new tracks to the nearly 100 tunes currently available on disc or for purchase as part of special events.

"At this time, we have run through our planned slate of Rock Band Unplugged DLC," an MTV Games representative told GameSpot. "With almost 100 tracks available via disc and downloadable content, the PSP has proven to be an excellent place to experience Rock Band on-the-go. Right now, our DLC team is focused on Rock Band Network, weekly console DLC, and unannounced future projects."

Last week, the Rock Band franchise hit a momentous milestone, when MTV Games and Harmonix announced that more than 1,000 songs are available either on disc or as downloadable content. Since Rock Band debuted on consoles in November 2007, Harmonix has supported the game with 105 consecutive weeks of new downloadable content.
