Although spurring just a fraction of the excitement caused by the Apple Store temporarily shutting down, more than a few tipsters have brought to our attention that the Rock Band Community Site is currently missing, replaced by the above picture asking us to "please check back in a few for a whole new community experience!"
Will we get a more integrated high score list? A way to look at our avatar online and take pictures? A fresh coat of paint? Anything at all? We don't know, and g Given the notifier doesn't specify what unit of time "a few" means - it could be minutes, hours, days, years, or the notorious "when it's ready" - we also don't know how long we'll have to wait to find out. Rock stars can be fickle like that.
Update: We've confirmed the email sent out to current Rock Band community members that outlines the features with the new update. They include:
Link your RockBand.com account to your Xbox Live gamertag or PlayStation Network id to share your characters, bands and high scores with your friends.
Compare your high scores with the Rock Band community on the brand new Leaderboards.
Make friends, write a blog, and post your pictures on your own personal RockBand.com page.
Community forums will return with all posts intact.
Update 2: It's back up now. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
