Rock Band rakes in $1 billion

In North America alone

MTV's Rock Band has officially generated over $1 billion in North American sales, according to stat cruncher the NPD Group.


The Harmonix franchise hit the milestone in 15 months, aided by over 40 million individual paid song downloads from its 600 strong catalogue of tracks.

Publisher MTV says NPD data also shows the game was the number one title of 2008 by revenue across all genres.
