On a side note, Activision is pulling the plug on Guitar Hero. Turns out flooding the market with the exact same game wasn't such a good idea.
Oooh - not according to Activision. They're trying to pull Rock Band down at the same time by claiming that "continued declines in the music genre" contributed to their decision to cancel Guitar Hero.

Uh, what? I know a disappointing number of people are interested in temporary downloads and that's killing permanent media, but if anything I thought people were turning to games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band to get their music fix. Weird to see Activision not just say "our game stiffed". Obviously Rock Band seems to be doing OK from what I see here.
