So very interesting news yesterday. It came out yesterday that Taylor Swift will be teaming up with Glu Mobile to make a “one of a kind” mobile game experience. Speaking from experience this ends badly. These types of games are pretty much designed to remove money from your wallet. It starts off as free but then come the little things, oooo I want that but it costs such and such can’t unlock it yet but drop $4.99 and you can. I can’t really blame her, other people in her target audience are doing it, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, the first ones sisters. It’s easy money if the fan base sucks into it.The problem though is again that money part. If the fan base sucks into they could very well end up dropping hundreds of dollars. If it’s your credit card you’ll be the angry one trust me.
Now all that said Taylor Swift is a smart woman when it comes to her brand. She’s incredibly protective of it. So that could mean something above board comes out and if it doesn’t she pulls the plug. At least I’d hope thats what happens. That she’s got enough pull in all this to be able to say no thats bad and pulls out. Here’s hoping other wise I see another controversy with her name written on it.
