Keep On Rocking: EA Not Shutting Down Rock Band For iPhone

Good news, rockers! We heard back from our friends at EA, and yesterday’s panic over the kill switch on Rock Band for iPhone was premature. They tell us that the in-app message was an error, and you can buy the game with confidence if you feel so inclined.

Their PR department told us:

Rock Band for iOS will remain live – the in-app message users received yesterday was sent in error. We apologize for the confusion this caused. We’re working to clarify the issue that caused the error and will share additional information as soon as possible.

Thanks, EA! That’s great to hear. But we’re still not taking back your Golden Poo.
