No more new content for Rock Band Unplugged

Harmonix shuts door on downloadable PSP content

Harmonix representatives announced this morning that the developer has ceased releasing downloadable content for Rock Band Unplugged in order to focus on the console versions.

Developer reps confirmed a Joystiq rumour this morning that Harmonix had "run through [its] planned slate" of Rock Band Unplugged DLC after the title failed to appear on weekly downloadable content lists after tracks "You're No Rock N' Roll Fun" and "California Uber Alles" were released November 19th. Harmonix thanked Sony for their support and politely stated they were "very pleased with the performance of the Rock Band Unplugged game on PSP, the Rock Band PSP bundle and PSP Go starter kit."

Though the developer would not commit to an absolute moratorium on fresh content, players will likely have to consign themselves to the roughly 100 tracks available on the PSP title as Harmonix turns its attention to cranking out weekly downloadable track packs on the consoles and ironing out the bugs in the upcoming Rock Band Network, which allows users to create their own Rock Band tracks and upload them for peer review.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
