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?
