Viacom to sell Harmonix

Bloomberg:

Viacom said today it will sell the unprofitable Harmonix unit, creator of the “Rock Band” music video game. Excluding the game business and tax benefits, profit was 75 cents, topping the 70-cent average of 26 analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg.

It’s saddening to see that a high-quality franchise like Rock Band isn’t doing well financially.
