    Activision Shuts down Guitar Hero

    I just read on msnbc that activisioin has pulled the plug on guitar hero and stopped the one they were trying to release for 2011. 'Guitar Hero' is silenced by Activision - msnbc.com. Looks like no more Guitar Hero, comments and feelings anyone?

    It's about time. How many times can a company repack the same game?

    Excellent piece of member submitted news, Supermasterpig --- I don't mean in terms of actual story (some will bemoan the decline and fall of the GH franchise) --- but I mean finding something good or bad not previously submitted, and submitting it.

    I guess DJ Hero is probably doomed too.

    I read that part. That's why I said probably. There was doubt of a second being made because the first didn't do too well. I don't know how well the second did but it seems like more of a niche game than GH.

    Don't get me wrong, I like guitar hero too, but I think activision released too many guitar hero games. I wonder if the remaining stock at retailers will go to the clearance shelf?

    I bought all my stuff used, but that GH6 guitar sure looks sweet.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'm going to keep an eye on the price at the retailers. Kmart was selling the DJ Hero 1 game for $25 just before DJ Hero 2 was released about 4 months ago. But even today, Walmart wants full price for DJ Hero 1, I hate (HATE) Walmart so much, but that's another story.
