    Activision is being much more conservative with its music game releases in 2010. On its first quarter 2010 conference call this afternoon, the company confirmed Guitar Hero 6 and "the next DJ Hero" (Activision didn't call it DJ Hero 2) are on track for a release sometime this fall. Read More?

  • Activision Releasing Far Fewer Guitar Hero Games In 2010

    The music genre isn't the star child it used to be. It continues to be a solid performer for both Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but interest has waned. A common critique has been Activision's deluge of Guitar Hero releases, potentially diluting consumer interest. Whether Activision will ever admit that or not, the company is radically scaling back...

    Hey, I don't have anything against old people. Decades from now, when every game is motion controlled, youngsters will be laughing at me, too. But for the time being, it's the other way around. The Faster Times recently ran a series of photos collected from Flickr chronicling a series of older men and women trying their hand at ye ol' Guitar...

    With Guitar Hero 5, Neversoft and Activision are delivering a hotly requested feature introduced in Rock Band 2: the ability to transfer downloadable content from one game to another.

    It's interesting to find out how rockers feel about music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
