    Sales:
    GH5 nearly 1 million.
    DJ Hero nearly 800,000
    Band Hero nearly 600,000
    2.4 million copies altogether (not included GH:SH sales), if Activision loses this they'll be in the shit.

    does that include the sales of all the accessories for those games too? like Guitar Hero 5 guitar and DJ Hero Turntables? or just the games themselves?

    hmm it doesn't say anything about accessories...but it sure would suck for Activision to have to pay all that money on those games and even worse for them if all the accessories bought are included especially since a lot of people who didnt even buy the games bought the guitars/drums/mics/turntables and downloaded the game.

    Ouch, that's a pretty big problem. I don't think they'll lose this, I'm sure they've already thought of this happening and prepared for it. Either way, paying this much per sold game/accessoire is completely unreasonable.

    Remember when GH3 Wii was released with mono sound only, despite the box advertising dolby surround sound?
