The spirit of competition between Activision and Harmonix's respective rhythm franchises is still very much alive and well -- shortly after Activision announced that a trio of tunes
from post-punk darlings The Killers would be making their way onto Guitar Hero: World Tour
as DLC, MTV let it slip to Wired
that they would be adding their own Killers triple-pack to the Rock Band
Music Store on the very same day (Nov. 25). Man, what a bizarre coincidence!
Two of the three songs which are about to be thrust into Harmonix's already intimidating music library are relative oldies: "Mr. Brightside" and "Smile Like You Mean It" -- but a title from the Killers' new album, Day & Age
, will also make an appearance: "Spaceman". The article on Wired mentioned nothing of pricing details -- though it's probably safe to assume they'll match the $2.00 (160
) per song/ $5.50 (440
) per pack price point we've all come to know and love over the past year.
