- Adds support for Rock Band 2 downloadable content. You'll need this if you don't buy Rock Band 2 but want to download new songs after its Sept 15 release - including some of the newly announced albums: "The Colour and the Shape" by Foo Fighters (yes!), "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (double yes!), "Nothing's Shocking" by Jane's Addiction, "Texas Flood" by Stevie Ray Vaughn, "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying" by Megadeth and a No Doubt "Best Of" collection
