Rock Band song prices revealed

Fast on the heels of Sony revealing the song prices in SingStar, the cost of downloadable tracks for upcoming game Rock Band has been revealed. According to Gamespot, tracks on the 360 version will cost between 80 and 240 points (although we’re not sure what the price difference relates to – song length, perhaps? Cover versions/origional versions?), and to get hold of three-track bundles costs 440 points.
