Videogame music sells!

by Josh Kimball

Next Great Thing says that music in videogames is a hot commodity (as I noted last week!). Game publisher EA has created Artwerk, its own label. And extra song bundles for games like Guitar Hero II (which RULES, btw) are being licensed, then snatched up by consumers willy nilly.

Pop music isn’t the only genre getting a boost. Classical tunes are getting more listens among Millennials than ever before thanks to Final Fantasy and Super Mario Bros. soundtracks. [via]
