Gaming Press/RIP Guitar Hero

11Feb11

Shocking news from the gaming world this week as Activision kills Guitar Hero and shutters Red Octane.  Although Viacom recently dumped Harmonix for less than the price of a Rock Band game, Harmonix swears the franchise is not dead riding high on a Metacritic rating of 93 for Rock Band 3.  Much higher than the Metacritic rating of 7277 for Guitar Hero’s last ride, Warriors of Rock.  Here’s the buzz from the gaming press:

Destructoid “There Will Be No More Guitar Hero DLC”
Edge “Harmonix Saddened by Guitar Hero Cancellation”
Engadget “Activision Kills GH to the Consternation of Fake Musicians”
Eurogamer “The Show Goes On”
