Harmonix and MTV Games have created a very special set of downloadable content to celebrate the three day event called Penny Arcade Expo. The “PAX 2008 Collection”, which should be up today, contains tracks from Jonathan Coulton, MC Frontalot, and The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets – all of whom performed at the event last weekend. And to add to the excitement, all proceeds from the sales of this “PAX Pack” between launch and Holiday 2008 will be donated to the Child’s Play Charity that is ran by Penny Arcade.
The songs that will be available individually and as a pack are “Skullcrusher Mountain” by Jonathan Coulton, “Livin’ on the Corner of Dude and Catastrophe” by MC Frontalot, and “Shhh….” by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. Individual song prices are .99¢ (80 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360) per track, or $2.99 (240 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360) for the 3 pack. All of these songs are the original master recordings. These songs should be available today to purchase for Rock Band on the Xbox360, and for PS3 owners, these tracks will be available on Thursday, September 4, 2008.
