Activision may charge for user-created content

One of the most popular features of Activision's Guitar Hero: World Tour is the option to share and download content created by other users (as well as uploading your own original content), however, the features popularity may take a dive if Activision go through with their latest crazy idea: to charge a subscription fee to access user-created content.

The service is currently free to anybody who owns the game (which is being released in Europe on November 7th, and in Australia on November 12th), and has racked up a total of 25,000 user-uploaded tracks since its October 26th launch. This number is expected to rise to 100,000 by the end of 2008.

So, what do you think? Should Activision be able to start charging for a free service once it has got some initial content (for free) from its users?
