It’s another success for the music game genre as Harmonix sells more than 2.5 million downloadable songs from Rock Band (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) through Xbox Live (XBL) and the PlayStation Network (PSN). This success reminds us of the time when digital music sales were boosted thanks to Guitar Hero III.

According to Harmonix and MTV Games, the best selling tracks from Rock Band are from the Metallica Pack, which features the original versions of “Ride the Lightning”, “Blackened,” and “And Justice for All.”

Other hit downloads include tracks from The Police, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie, and Black Sabbath. Paul DeGooyer, MTV Senior VP of home entertainment, music and games, says we’ll be able to see album releases “very shortly.”

If you’re a fan of Rock Band, you probably have until the end of the month to take advantage of their US$ 0.99 offer for some of the offered tracks. The price will be switching back to the normal price by the end of January.
