Xbox 360 Rock Band owners may want to pick up the February 2008 issue of Official Xbox Magazine. The disc bundled with the issue will come with three “completely exclusive” songs for the game:
Freezepop — “Sprøde”
Bang Camaro — “Rock Rebellion”
Count Zero — “Shake”
So depending on your familiarity with these songs (and the bands, all of which are local to the Boston, MA area where Harmonix’s studio resides), this might be a blessing or a curse. A blessing in the fact that getting three free songs (if you had planned on reading OXM anyhow) is nothing to turn your nose up at. But these songs could quickly become a curse if lack of familiarity ends up as a miserable fail during one of the game’s longer mystery set lists.
Either way, you can count on this — PlayStation 3 rockers calling foul, wondering when they’re going to get their free exclusive tracks. So Harmonix, when are they going to get their three exclusive tracks?
