    Default VH Guitar Hero 5

    Don't shoot the messenger but here it is: (From March 6, 2009)

    Activision CEO Bobby Kotick spoke today at the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference about the challenges facing his company, responding to concerns about growth on a few of its key franchises, like Call of Duty and Guitar Hero. While Kotick was wise to avoid revealing specifics, he may have let slip the next artist-focused Guitar Hero title. If true, it may be a very good fit.

    Early in the Q&A session, Kotick talked about opportunities for new platforms and "line extensions" for the Guitar Hero franchise, which we can theorize mean things like Guitar Hero: On Tour for portables and DJ Hero. Kotick also talked about bands that were "proprietary to our format," including Aerosmith.

    Kotick later talked about Aerosmith again, in response to a line of questioning about artists finding themselves making big bucks off Guitar Hero tracks. He said of the opportunity, "If we're [...] creating a whole new group of consumers, six to eleven year old consumers, who are being exposed to Aerosmith for the first time or Van Halen for the first time, whatever that might be we need to capture much more of that upside opportunity."

    Now, Kotick may just be a big fan of Eddie Van Halen, but the profits to be had selling a licensed Kramer 5150 Guitar Hero guitar controller may have just gotten Bobby a bit too excited. Based on what the Activision CEO said, expect more artist-only titles, and consider Van Halen a fairly safe bet.

    Just to comment, obviously the 5150 controller would say EVH on it, no Kramer logo anywhere...

    Will there be an EVH Wolfgang game controller, and will it have five-ply binding?

    I hope there's an all Van Halen Guitar Hero game. Rythm games are fun and are a great thing to play at parties!

    I am totally clueless on the whole Guitar Hero, Rock Band thing. It's hard enough to find time to improve on my real instrument skills.

    But anything that gets kids at least somewhat interested in music that actually takes an instrument to play, I am all for it.

    I think the most interesting thing to see, (if this game is actually more than a rumor) is who will be in it. The other Guitar Hero games that have focused on bands have all of the members in the game as playable characters. Will Wolfgang or Michael Anthony be in it?? If the game is using the master recordings, it would look a little odd for Wolfgang to be singing all the original back-up vocals (or maybe he did that all tour anyway?), but would Ed ever let Mike appear in a Van Halen game now? Is Ed crazy enough to re-record all of the original songs just to have them in the game and not use Mike?
    If they do it right, this game could really look pretty cool with all of the old set pieces costumes.

    I was very skeptical to say the least about those games until my girlfriend's kids brought it over to the house...

    I found it to be extremely entertaining and dare I say, addictive...

    It's cool because it's not like playing real guitar, but a game mimicking guitar poses, using the right and left hand, etc...

    When I was buying my new amp this past Tuesday, one of the guys at the music store had a family come in and buy a couple of guitars for their kids because the kids were so into the game, they wanted to learn how to play for real...

    I like the idea of younger kids being exposed to VH and if it means it coming from a game, who cares???

    I still think of going to the store a while back with her kids and them singing along to Running With the Devil and Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love...

    No shit. I embrace the chance of the youth of today actually getting good music on the brain instead of Jay-zee featuring Puff Daddy smacking Rhianna.

    I do hate Jay Z and Puffy Daddy but there are some good tunes in that genre... My girlfriend has exposed me to a lot of that type of music and there is talent there, you just have to look for it. I guess Rock and Roll is the same way, there's both good and bad...

    On a related note, I guess in the same speech, they're looking at coming out with a DJ Hero game as well...

    Agreed! I bet they just crap out and use Lars Umlaut as their bass player.

    Does it also mean a keyboard is coming with it. How would they do a song like Jump without it.
