Here’s my dilemma, one that I’m sure many of you can relate with: I can’t go to the Rock Band store. Physically, I can, but knowing how many worthwhile songs are up for purchase and how impulse buying is far too easy when it comes to digital distribution, I have to avoid it.
And it’s only getting worse. The Jimi Hendrix tune “Are You Experienced?” will be song number 2,000 for Rock Band, when it — along with the rest of Are You Experienced — hits the Internet next week.
I don’t even want to do the simple multiplication needed to figure out how much it would cost to own the entire platform’s track list; it’s too painful a thought.
