Transfer All But Three Songs From Rock Band To RB2 For $5

Quite some time back, Harmonix announced that gamers would be able to import Rock Band tracks, save it on a hard-disk drive, and play these tracks in Rock Band 2 without having to get up and swap discs. Now, Harmonix is giving us the full details on this service.

Wannabe rockstars can transfer 55 of the original 58 on-disc tracks from Rock Band onto Rock Band 2. The missing three songs are: "Enter Sandman" by Metallica, "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath (cover), and "Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden (cover) with an additional DLC track, "Monsoon" by Tokio Hotel (a DLC song from the European disc). The service isn't free, however; gamers will be expected to fork over $5 for the reallocation of tunes.

Note: As of writing, the PS3 version of Rock Band does not have the export tool yet.
