Okay, which one of you coughed up the billy bucks for some Guitar Hero II songs? No one wants to fess up to it, eh? Mighty suspicious considering that Activision is claiming they've sold more than 300,000 of the things at $6.25 apiece. What happened to all that unbridled outrage?
Not only has the downloadable content for Guitar Hero II been "a tremendous success," but head of Red Octane publishing, Dusty Welch, says that "demand seems to be insatiable."
Before the games release, fellow Red Octane colleague Ted Lange claimed that Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360 would have the most online content of any game to date. Well, The iDOLM@STER seems to disagree, but we digress. Activision began offering their download content back in April and since then only four song packs have been released, three of which were released on that same fateful day back in April.
Welch continues, claiming that the current prices are "very attractive and desirable for consumers." When you're starved for content for such an addictive game, in time, anything will become desirable.
With the Guitar Hero "imitator" Rock Band, boasting new download content every week, this marks yet another chapter in this rock opera.
