NEW YORK, NY - December 15, 2008 - Harmonix, the world’s premier music video game development company, and MTV Games, a part of Viacom’s MTV Networks (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), today confirmed that Ten, the debut album that sold 12 million copies and introduced the world to Pearl Jam (www.pearljam.com) in 1991, will be offered for download in the Rock Band Music Store day-and-date with the re-issue of the album in stores on March 24, 2009.

Paul DeGooyer, Senior Vice President of Electronic Games and Music for MTV Networks Music / Logo Group, added, “Just hearing the first few notes of Jeremy or Alive brings back all the raw emotion of this incredible, hugely important album. We are honored to be working with Pearl Jam to deliver Ten as it is re-issued.”

    So first most of Nevermind and now Ten?! I’m in heaven! A little more Alice in Chains and I can die a happy man.

    This is one of the few albums that would make me want to let go of those Microsoft points that I’ve been holding on to for about a year by the time this gets released. 1200 points or less and I’d buy it on day one…What? I can dream.

    I could see this going for 1200 points. It would be 1440 at standard pricing if you bought them seperately, and Harmonix always makes you a deal if you buy the bundle.

    Prepare to spend those points Red.

    Ah, for some reason I was thinking they cost 1600 points generally, so 1200 would be a deal. Didn’t occur to me that because there are so few songs in the first place that the cost would be below 1600. In that case I’m hoping for 1000. Despite the fact that I’ve got points to spend, I’d still like to use them wisely.
