Acti-Blizz Q3 financials – We may charge for GHWT user-content, says Kotick
Speaking in an earnings call after the release of third quarter financials yesterday, Activision boss Bobby Kotick said that the firm may start charging to access and uplod user-content in Guitar Hero World Tour.
“In just 10 days, our GH Tunes has attracted over 25,000 user-generated songs which means we’ll likely have up to 100,000 songs by the year end,” he said.
“These songs are easily downloaded by consumers and the ability to offer these songs on a subscription basis may very well result in the newest subscription opportunities in our portfolio.”
You go, Bobby.
Activision posted a Q3 loss yesterday on the back of increased sales.
