On Sousaphone Hero

We’ve all heard of Guitar Hero. At least, if we’re into video games, we’ve heard of Guitar Hero. It’s a game, comes with a guitar-shaped controller, and depending on how well you work your axe determines your score.

I don’t recommend anyone pull a Pete Townsend with a Guitar Hero controller. I’m just saying.

Well, I was looking forward to Sousaphone Hero, Activision’s follow-up to Guitar Hero. Who wouldn’t want to play with a large plastic tuba controller?

Apparently, not many people — Activision is reporting sluggish sales on the game.

High price point. A niche market.

Damn. And I was looking forward to picking it up cheap and/or used.

Sousaphone Hero.
