Harmonix announces downloadable Rock Band

Rock Band house Harmonix has announced their latest effort, and it’s kind of what you’d expect; Rock Band Blitz is a music game, but with no peripherals and playable by traditional controller.

Available this summer on both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, the game will make full use of Rock Band‘s vast content library. All 3,700 or so songs already available for the series can be bought and played in Blitz.

It will be a lonely experience though, with the game only supporting solo play.
