Rock Band is a group of music video gaming developed by Harmonix Music Systems and MTV Games, and provided by Electronic Arts to the Nintendo DS, iPhone, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, and Xbox 360 game systems. The series, inspired by Harmonix's previous efforts on the Guitar Hero series, allows around four players to simulate the performance of popular rock music songs by messing around with controllers modeled after musical instruments. Players can start to play the lead guitar, bass guitar, and drums parts to songs, as well as sing in a USB microphone. Players are scored on his or her capacity to match scrolling musical notes while playing instruments, by their capacity to match the singer's pitch on vocals. Martin Nettleton adds: “We invested in the campaign to target those larger installation and distribution companies increasingly dissatisfied with the big fabricators who are starting to compete with them by setting up their own networks of trade counters and distribution outlets.
