Released back in October 2009, Rock Band iOS was co-developed by EA Montreal and Harmonix, with publishing handled by Electronic Arts and MTV Games. Two years later, parent-company Viacom would sell-off Harmonix, and MTV Games would cease to exist. Harmonix has since continued on as an independent developer, finding massive success in Dance Central, but a supremely weird pop-up started presenting itself in Rock Band iOS yesterday. A pop-up which appears to claim the game has an expiration date.
With music videos migrating from cable TV to the greener pastures of YouTube -- where stardom is made for folks like Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black -- there's a temptation for folks to craft their own musical creations. Rock Band creator Harmonix's new iOS title VidRhythm streamlines this process, though its options are so limited that it's more a meme creator than an editorial tool.
