HMX, is it plausible to assume that many of the tracks on RBN (especially at the beginning) will have been previously charted in-house? Or that many of the newly charted tracks, especially by larger bands, will be done by professional HMX employees?
Something about this endeavor makes me think that a large portion of the new RBN DLC won't be charted by amateurs at all (although much of it will) but the tender hands of our favorite game developers.
Over the years HMX has charted a large amount of tracks that for whatever reason didn't make it as core DLC. Whether it's the remaining tracks of partially-released albums, tracks of their own bands or the complete discography of their favorite act, I have to imagine that the computers in Boston are full of unheard/unreleased material.
The Rock Band Network seems like the PERFECT time and forum to release all of that amazing music and allow both the fans and Harmonix to reap the benefits/rewards of all their hard work.
So HMX, between you and me, wink if I'm on to something.
