Activision contemplating subscription model for Guitar Hero games

Tuesday, 24th November 2009 14:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


According to a Seattle Times interview with Red Octane co-founder Kai Huang, Activision may consider a subscription based service for future Guitar Hero DLC.

“That’s definitely one of the things we would love to do,” Huang said. “There are a lot of issues around music licensing. Customers want it. I know I want it. We’re trying to make that happen.”

It may be simpler that way. Pay a monthly fee, like a lot of other music services, and download all you want.

Providing more than 10 songs are put out a month and it’s cheap, it might eventually be the way to go.

    It’s a solution to a problem that shouldn’t exist. Music clearance and licensing is needlessly stupid and if it was more straight forward everyone would be much better off.

    I’m not going to subscribe unless it meets my needs re: the music availiable. More fucking Foo Fighters and piss poor rock and it can fuck off.
