Was wondering if the HMX developers and/or MTV Games have any plans for further promoting the RBN bands that become the most popular....?
*Having a "Featured Artist of the Week" section on the RBN page
*Listing the top RBN downloads per week/month or whatever, on rockband.com
*Interviews in the 'Zine with some of the most popular bands
*featuring an "RBN Breakout Artist of the Year" award at the VMAs; letting fans choose the best from, say, 5 nominees
*pressing "Best of RBN" compilation CDs for people to listen to on the go
*having a weekly RBN showcase feature on one of the MTV networks (say, MTV2)
*helping the best unsigned RBN bands get a label
*along the same lines: how about an RBN record label?
I know some of those are easier said than done, but I was just wondering if HMX/MTV have plans to further help the best bands that come up through the Network....
I'm still awestruck at the RBN announcement, guys. Really, this has become far more than just a video game; with RBN, you've become an integral part of the music industry, and this *will* be a launching pad for The Next Big Thing.
Thank you for giving so many bands that helping hand they've all been needing.
