The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, online film and video, interactive advertising, and mobile Websites. RockBand.com has been nominated in the Games-Related category for the second consecutive year and is the only single-game-specific site nominated in its category.
While RockBand.com has been nominated before, this year it's with an all-new site. Back in October, RockBand.com received a major redesign, adding new content-focused sections and enhancements to the extremely active community forums.
"When we built RockBand.com, we wanted to make it much more than just another game site," said Jeff Chausse, Harmonix Web Director. "Rock Band is a genuine cultural and social phenomenon. To honor its significant impact on music and gaming, we strove to create a website that truly celebrates the social aspects of the game and the hundreds of musical artists whose work make it possible."
