November? Not so much. That was when Rock Band Network was expected to arrive, bringing strange and exciting new music to the Rock Band downloadable content-lovin' masses straight from the people confident in using Reaper.
As reported by Kotaku, Harmonix is hopeful the current closed beta status of RBN will switch to "open" before we hit next year. Of course, no specific dates were given yet. The actual storefront -- the thing us paying customers will use to download these new tunes -- is making it out of the testing grounds in "early 2010."
"The open beta launch will add access to the currently private website where all of the RBN community activity and peer reviewing of tracks will take place," an MTV Games rep said.
"People who join the Rock Band Network (bands, fans or otherwise) will be able to play and preview any song before it hits the store, so they should stay tuned for the official launch." You heard the person, folks!
