Harmonix announced this morning that Rock Band 3
, which has settled in at a very attractive $19.99 price, is now available via Xbox Live Games on Demand. As more and more content is available through digital distribution, it only makes sense that the best music title to date is available that way, especially at its current price.
What would be great is if new versions of the game (if there are some to come) will also be available, as most people have plenty of plastic instruments lying around the house already. And knocking off $10 on the price would be nice too, seeing as how the costs are exceeding less for digital distro than traditional packaging.
