Rock Out with Five New Guitar Hero Games

May 7, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


Remember when the CEO of Activision said that they only wanted franchises that they can exploit on a yearly basis or more? Well, he certainly wasn’t lying.

Today, Activision announced four new titles, Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, DJ Hero, and, as previously reported, Guitar Hero: Van Halen.¬†Along with Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, that brings a total of five HERO games coming this year. If you’re a fan of the HERO games, then this will definitely be a buffet for you. And also, be prepared to spend a truck load of money. Possibly even boat loads.

So how do you guys feel about this announcement? Is Activision giving its audience what they want, or simply milking the franchise?
