Sousaphone Hero sales flounder Activision’s profits


With the success of Guitar Hero, who could have ever expected that Activision would fall downhill so quick. Apparently parody extraordinaries The Onion does. The Onion claims that “despite the catchy 1890’s soundtrack”, Sousaphone Hero has only sold 52 copies.

Choose from an impressive list of Sousaphone virtuosos, such as the Duke of Yorkshire and Constable Trobendeimer, and you’ll be ready for some serious Sousaphone led action. Though the poor sales might be due to the $345 price tag for the game. — Andrew Dobrow

  1. Haha. Hilarious. I really hope this is a joke. If not… I really have no comment except that I am SO sorry for people without brains. I’m sorry for that last comment, too, but…I just had to say it.

  2. man, I would have loved to get my hands on it, I play Sousaphone in Marching Band and I love it.

  3. I know! Me too. I currently play sousaphone in marching band as well, and I’m planning on staying with it through college. I would have loved to know about the games so I could get one. Though I have noticed that the reports are seriously templated and the pictures looks strangely photoshopped.

  4. I would buy it.

  5. Ok, my marching season just started for my high school and i just switched from playing trumpet to sousa ( since theres like 50 trumpets, 9 sousa’s, 350 total ) due to a low amount of tubas/sousa’s so my band director wanted me to try it out since i’ve literally played most instruments in the brass section and found them quite easy. But never have i come across something so fucking difficult to change my whole embouchure to. I played baritone like it was cake but this is soo difficult. A simple Bb scale took me 2 days to get out. AND MY LEFT SHOULDER HURTS SO FUCKING BAD. But i love it <3 haha.
