MTV Games just informed us that the title update for Rock Band -- you know, the one that allows you to import Rock Band disc-based songs to Rock Band 2 -- has gone live.
The update will add an "export disc" tab under the extra options of the Rock Band menu, which will allow users to transfer 55 tracks from the original game to Rock Band 2. The cost? $4.99, or 400 Microsoft Points. Right now, the update is useless -- Rock Band 2 has yet to hit shelves. But MTV Games are also quick to point out that the patch is required for all future downloadable content releases for Rock Band, so get to patching.
No word on which 55 songs are transferable; we've contacted the appropriate persons for said info, and we'll update you as soon as we can.
[Update: Ladies and gentlemen, the three songs you won't be exporting to Rock Band 2 are: "Paranoid" as made famous by Black Sabbath, "Enter Sandman" by Metallica and "Run to the Hills" as made famous by Iron Maiden. European folk won't be able to port over Tokio Hotel's "Monsoon."
Additionally, the update also apparently "lowers the threshold on gold stars, making it easier/possible to gold star songs. This won't affect leaderboards as it only affects the threshhold [sic], not the score. Secondly, it fixes a few songs that had 'unhittable' notes."]
