Oh Look, It Appears Music Video Games Were A Bit Of A Fad Too
from the that-magic-bullet dept
Guess what? Looks like that fad is on its way out as well, as there's not nearly as much interest as there used to be in those games. Many people who want such games already have them, and the "innovations" in the new versions just aren't appealing enough to pay the hefty upgrade fees. Perhaps the labels should have focused on keeping the games cheap, knowing that they actually helped drive more interest in the acts whose songs were available, helping to actually increase sales in other areas.
Of course, the music industry has already moved on to its next "fad" anyway: music apps. So how long until we start seeing that market start to fizzle as well?
