Participating Music: Rock Band (Game)

From the creators of the Guitar Hero game franchise (discussed in the course).
Guitar heroes unite; 'Rock Band' is coming | Crave : The gadget blog
The emphasis on collaboration goes well with the whole participatory culture and musicking trend that we talked about during the semester. Not sure how the game will be received but the idea of making it easy for people to play together (as opposed to playing against one another, apparently) is quite interesting.
Another thing: the video game industry is now succeeding where the recording industry is failing. Coincidence? You decide! ;-)
