Viacom Sold Rock Band Franchise for $49.99?!?

Here’s what happens when a red-hot video game franchise goes cold: You can buy the whole company for the same price as a single copy of the game.

I had a hunch that Viacom sold off Harmonix, which makes the Rock Band games, at a steep discount last month. But I’m still surprised it was this cheap: I’m told that investment group Columbus Nova paid $49.99 — the list price for “Rock Band 3″ — and got the entire company.
