For all the money spent on securing the use of The Beatles, the Rock Band title of the same name is yet to outsell its predecessor, Rock Band 2. But is there a silver lining in that money pit?

Maybe. MTV's Scott Guthrie has disclosed that "more than 1 million" Beatles songs have been downloaded for the game. Considering the game has sold "only" 1.7 million copies worldwide since launching in 2009, that's a pretty good adoption rate for downloadable content if you take them as one million individual song downloads.


Since they're most likely including albums sales in that number, however (which will bloat the figures), it shows most people picking the game up either aren't aware of, or are simply not interested in, downloadable content.
