Rock Band iPhone Store Not Dead

Electronic Arts today released a free version of popular rhythm game Rock Band for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but the game's Music Store remains outdated.

Rock Band launched in October with 20 songs and a Music Store designed to allow gamers to purchase fresh tracks for their game. And for awhile the tracks dropped on a fairly regular basis.

Two-packs of songs from 30 Seconds, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, The James Gang Rides Again, Social Distortion, Freezepop, Anarchy Club, Bang Camaro and Weezer hit the store for .99 cents a pop and some for free.

But it's been nearly a month since a new song has been added to the iPhone Rock Band store, leading some to wonder if the Apple version of the game was going the way of Rock Band Unplugged for the PSP. Last month, Harmonix said the weekly updates for the PSP music story were going on hiatus.

Contacted this week, EA tells us that the Rock Band iPhone Music Store is still very much alive:

"I can assure you that some new premium tracks will soon be available at a low price on the Music store," the spokesperson said.

Breath is officially bated.
