Guitar Zero

Activision just dropped a bombshell.

They are killing the Guitar Hero franchise.  No more.

Admittedly, this has been a long time coming.  Sorry, but Warriors Of Rock was silly.  Rock Band 3 at least felt like the next evolutionary step for music games, with you actually being taught to play the real instruments.  Warriors Of Rock was like a cross between Kilroy Was Here and Revolution X, which were bad to begin with.  It didn't even crack the sales charts.  Activision sank so much on the SKU's and helped kill the goose that laid the golden egg.  About 500 people, 7% of Activision's work force, are getting the thumb between this and the cancelation of True Crime:  Hong Kong.

Last week, MTV Games, which gave us Rock Band, was officially shut down.

Greed has once again killed something I love.  When will it end?
