Harmonix Unveils RockBand.comToday Harmonix revealed its plans for Rock Band's official website, that can be found at www.rockband.com. A social, community site, the portal will allow users to create personal and band profiles, and will host a classifieds section for hooking up with other gamer musicians. "The site allows you to hype your in-game band's accomplishments, while providing a forum to meet other real-life people and potential band mates who share your musical tastes," says Melissa Macaulay, Producer of RockBand.com, Harmonix. Your online profiles will be linked to the profiles you create in Rock Band, so the characters you design will show up on the web page. Leaderboards will chart solo and band progress. Bands will be able to create a blog to communicate with band mates, set up practice times and such. The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the game will launch on November 20.
