Harmonix wants to embrace Rock Band user content

Chatting it up with GamesIndustry.biz, Harmonix's Greg LoPiccolo talked Rock Band and its future mentioning that the Rock Band platform could eventually grow to allow user content. When questioned about possibly hitting a creativity wall, LoPiccolo told GamesIndustry.biz that Harmonix "would like to make it possible for people to introduce their own music into sort of the Rock Band ecosystem" and that they would "love to have it be a vehicle for people to be able to express themselves in terms of creating their own music and bringing it to a wider audience." LoPiccolo did make it clear that such an avenue for growth is a "pretty complicated topic" due to implementation, IP problems and ratings, but is confident that Rock Band will grow as a platform ... whatever that entails.
