'Rock Band' Video Game Franchise Rocks On

Morning Edition's report on the demise of Rock Band was premature. The video game still exists, though it has suffered a decline in popularity.

And today's last word in business goes to our audience. We made a mistake yesterday. You called our attention to it and so today, we have a correction.

Yesterday, we reported that the music video game "Rock Band" was being canceled. That's an overstatement. "Rock Band" still exists. It's just suffered a decline in popularity.

A couple of months ago, the media company Viacom sold off the developer that makes "Rock Band" because it was losing money. But you can still play on.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
