Activision made $55 million from its music franchises DJ Hero, Guitar Hero and Band Hero in November – down 65% year-on-year. Meanwhile, it claims Rock Band sales were $31 million that month – down 59% from November 2008. “Sales of music genre games have suffered mightily in 2009, with sales through November totalling $620 million, compared to $1.19 billion in the same period a year ago,” says analyst Michael Pachter. “The $570 million decline in year-over-year music sales is responsible for two thirds of the overall decline in software sales thus far in 2009.”
