Not gonna work for Madden and Tony Hawk
The story suggests other games may be able to charge for new songs, but they'll be lucky to do 1% of what GH3 sells.

With GH3 buying new songs is like adding new levels of game play to an already addictive game, with Tony Hawk I'd just assume have my mp3 player on in the background.
