Laugh all you want at dudes standing in a lounge and playing on a plastic guitar – it’s a stupid amount of fun and it’s left a big gaping hole in this generation of consoles. Whenever you’re in the mood for a quick jam on Guitar Hero or Rockband you have to pull your PS3 or Xbox 360 out the cupboard, dust it off, and plug it in to get your fix. According to a close source at Kotaku Activision are hard at work on a new Guitar Hero that will be revealed to all at E3 later this year.
According to the source the visual style will be a “more realistic” approach than before on the current gen consoles. They contacted a spokesperson at Activision who had this to say:
[quote]We don’t comment on rumour or speculation, but have previously said, that as one of the most beloved entertainment franchises, we would only bring Guitar Hero back if we developed the right innovations to usher the franchise into the new generation of gaming[/quote]
Don’t know about you lot, but I’d be pretty chuffed to see the franchise return to current gen consoles.
