Guitar Hero Ponders A Subscription Model For DLC

As Guitar Hero's catalogue of downloadable content grows larger, it gets harder and harder to make a buck selling the older stuff individually. So... what about a subscription to the whole service instead?

It's something Red Octane and Activision are thinking about, RO's founder Kai Huang telling the Seattle Times "[a monthly subscription is]definitely one of the things we would love to do. There are a lot of issues around music licensing. Consumers want it; I know I want it. We're trying to make that happen."

Keep trying! And then let Rock Band copy it. Then make it $US10 a month to access the whole catalogue, albums and all. Then come get me.

    the day this happens the day i stop playing and move on.simple.

    The day this happens I will get it and download everything, then stop the subscription. Simple.

      It wont work like that

      You'll probably have a limit on how many songs you can get and most likely if you cancel the service then the songs will be useless too... Activision arent dumb when it comes to money, only when it comes to what their consumers want

    hey if they release as much DLC as RB does per week then a subscription would be worth it as it is i probs only pick up 3 songs a month

    Why would I want to pay a recurring fee to download songs, which about 1/3 I know/like? I'm much more happy with being able to choose, say thankya.
