Why "blame" Activision. It's a business model.
Get all the money you can while people are interested in your product: so it's a good move by them.
Who can assure me that if they hadn't released those many games people would have been far more interested today in buying a music game than what they are now? After all they generated a lot of revenue for the industry, where not only they were benefitted, but retailers and HW manufacturers too.

Bets with Conegamer:
Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.
