It doesn't matter if you love Harmonix or capital H.M.X.
I remember the MTV days (even when I played only GH) when they licensed The Beatles. Now they're releasing repeats. Ah, the days go by so fast....

1926 NEW "Party Hard" - Andrew W.K. 12/30/2012
Only song that sold enough to rank as of 1/1 also not a Blitz song. (Only out two days however).
Ya looks like the Blitz songs are selling pretty well...
*waits for Henry to somehow try to make it sound like Wii users will make up for this*
We went from full albums and around 40-50 songs a month to 25ish songs a month to 12 songs a month to now 6 songs a month. This is exactly what happened with GH...first DLC every week then every other week then once a month then nothing. It was fun while it lasted.
 More Janes Addiction
 More AFI

Relative sales figures on one console in one country aren't going to change Harmonix' minds, especially the songs that are only tracked for two days of a weekly thread. At this point it would be worse to lead people to believe all the Blitz songs will be released, then abruptly stop and leave holes all over the immediate DLC schedule.
For me, these all-blitz weeks aren't that different from any other week when the DLC is a band I don't know or like or care about, it's just more songs I'm not buying. The major difference is that now, every other week, there's no hope that there'll be a song that I want to buy. I'm not sure if I should be thankful for that or not, but I suppose one big up-front disappointment is better than being disappointed anew every other week? Hmm. Not like it's going to stop me from looking every week to see which songs are coming out, I suppose
And yet I still haven't played in over a year, mostly because there's no site like rockbandscores.com to track my progress. It sounds like a really lame explanation, I know, but I find that being able to track my stats so easily is really motivating for me, at least when I'm playing alone.
New Years Resolution: to get my monthly Rock Band group to play RB:TB, instead of RB3, for the entirety of one of our 2013 sessions.
PSN ID: SilverSpg
XBox GT: FieryNewt5
Total Song Library = 1,010 songs, including ALL games and track packs that can be exported into RB3
I swear, Rock Band is like Kenny on "South Park" with how many times it has "died" according to the community.
Can some of you not read? DLC IS NOT stopping. The announcement is just setting expectations. They are still going to be releasing non-Blitz content while they release the remainder of the Blitz songs. You might already own the songs as DLC because you purchased Blitz because you're an early adopter, but for some people (mostly Wii folk) the Blitz songs are NEW DLC.
Rock Band's not going anywhere anytime soon. Christ, there's so much negativity here. Did the recent MCR DLC turn everyone into emo teenagers that want to wrist cut? Things have always been slow in the winter months. This isn't the end of Rock Band or DLC or HMX.
So, cheer up.
Edit: Reading back, I realize the above could sound a bit condescending. So, let me re-phrase what I'm trying to say: This announcement doesn't change anything. It's just HMX giving us all a friendly heads up that 2013 DLC is going to fall in line with 2012 DLC and that we won't be getting any megapacks anytime soon (which we haven't had any megapacks for over a year, so we know that already).

May 20th, 2012: 4 long years since HMX released "Hysteria" by Muse. The wait for more Muse DLC has to end at some point, right?
Are you guys still actively licensing songs / looking to license songs for the Rock Band platform?
I'm just afraid that the well has dried up and that you guys are going to just gradually release what you've already licensed until it's gone.
Also, when and if you guys decide to stop providing DLC for Rock Band, will you still support the RBN? It's not so bad if you guys decide to stop DLC if the RBN authors pick up some of the bands you guys are known for and continue the DLC stream.
