Guitar Hero Didn’t Die A Natural Death, But Was Killed By Myopic Greed
Kudos to Activision for doing exactly what so many people had been predicting for years now. The world’s biggest video game publisher said yesterday that it was going to â€œdisband Activision Publishing’s Guitar Hero business unit,â€ citing a decline in interest in the music game genre. And what could possibly be the reason for that, hmm? Maybe releasing sequel after sequels after sequel in such a quick succession that you don’t give gamers any room to breathe? Gotta maximize short-term profits! The future? That’s someone else’s problem.
