Viacom to Sell Harmonix
Rock Band is huge franchise, right? Harmonix must be doing pretty well, right? Perhaps not.
All of this is in the wake of the release of what might be Harmonix’s best title ever, Rock Band 3 (we gave it a 95). Unfortunately, Rock Band 3 game and peripheral sales have been disappointing, with the game selling less than 7500 copies in its first week in the UK.
We’ll have to wait and see who steps up to the plate to buy Harmonix, but I would be highly surprised if someone didn’t come forward fairly quickly. The big question is this: How will this affect upcoming peripherals, like the $280 Squier Stratocaster that is set to release in March? As soon as we know, you’ll see it here.
