Sound Central resident hardcore gamer here. As a fan of both music and video games, Rock Band is one my favorite games of the last couple years. If you are not a fan, or have not heard of the game you can read about it here. It is a full band simulator with plastic guitars and drums that allow you to play songs with other people, much like Guitar Hero but with a full band.
Recently Rock Band made history by releasing a band’s new single through their game simultaneously with the release of the video and radio play. Next week they will make history again by offering the first ever full album in a music game. More after the jump.
