Activision boss Bobby Kotick says the company’s flop music game DJ Hero contributed to the company taking one-time star franchise Guitar Hero off the market….
via DJ Hero Helped Kill Guitar Hero – Games News at IGN.
Really? How stupid does Booby Kotick think we are? First off, DJ Hero WAS a bad idea from the start. But, someone thought it would do well enough to make a sequel and have a third on in the works.. But no.. it’s DJ Hero’s fault that the past few Guitar Hero games have had horrible track lists, lackluster game play, and pretty much boring.
Booby also admitted that creating DJ Hero pulled valuable care and attention away from Guitar Hero. Wait.. WHAT? So like you had the whole company focused on a game like DJ hero? WTF?! and DJ Hero wasn’t created by the same team.. so how was focus shifted?
Boils down too.. Some upper brass screw up. But will they take the blame? nope. the Developers where the problem. Not some idiot giving the green light on a game that was OBVIOUSLY not A) thought though and B) had any market research done.
I was always curious as to who the baby was on the cover of Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Now, 17-years later, I was able to find out whom.

Yep, in case you didn’t know Guinness World records has a video game catagory, and Daniel Johnson has beat the old record by more then 10,000 points while playing ‘Through the Fire and Flame’ by DragonForce on Expert, according to [DevelopMag].
So now if you out to try to beat the world record, you’ll need to nail more then 890, 971 on the song.. Good luck, with that. I’m still lucky to get 5% into the song on Expert, my old man hands just aren’t as fast as they used to be.
Well according to [Guitar Hero News] it looks like it. According to the radio station WRIF out of Detroit, Ted told listeners he is involved in the a future Guitar Hero. Granted this could mean GH4, could be a Guitar Hero: Ted Nugent (like what they’ve done with the Aerosmith edition.)
The only song specifically talked about was ‘Strangle Hold’, and no specific version of Guitar hero was stated. So it could just be a track on Guitar Hero 4, or even just a downloadable track for GH3. But the point is Strangle Hold is coming to Guitar Hero. =)
[The interview is here] around the 12:30 mark is where Ted starts talking about it.
For those that have NO idea what the song is.. It’s Youtube to the rescue!
Personally though, I would LOVE to see Hocus Pocus (Gary Hoey version)
[Tech Radar] has a nice write up about some up coming features of the newest primary version of Guitar Hero, and low and behold.. they can’t come up with some original, so they are ‘
stealing‘ ‘borrowing’ the Rock band idea by adding drums and a Mic.
Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has now gone on record, stating after Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Activision will be concentrating on Guitar Hero IV. With the only ‘new’ feature over Rock Band is the inclusion of local band songs to the planned downloadable content.
Speaking of music, where as Activision has access to the Universal Music library, Rock Band has EA and MTV. Will they be able to compete? Can you have a Guitar Hero with drums? And will you be able to play those drums one handed?
(10 points to anyone that gets that reference..LOL)
05/14/08 – Update
Fine, no one gets the points.
Way, QJ.NET has [some updates] to this thread about what’ll be coming to GH4 which boils down to:
1) More then just Drums, Bass, and Vocals? It’s possible.
2) The ability to create your own guitar and drum sounds (?!.. why?)
3) Song Creation. Yep create your own track! minus the vocals.
4) Song ratings: You can help out bands by rating them high, which allows them to upload more songs.
5) ok, THIS is good.. ALL songs will be master recordings, and beside Def Leopard, look like ‘The Answer’, Van Halen, The Eagles, Linkin Park and Sublime will have tracks.
6) and a new guitar design from Red Octane which has an innovative input mechanic subject for patent. Now to search for the patent… =/
