Why 2010 will be the year of the music game comeback

In recent years, the music video game industry has pretty much been declared dead in the water by mainstream gamers who played Guitar Hero III or the original Rock Band once or twice in 2007.

Comeback? I didn't realize they were played out. The only exception IMO are the Guitar Hero games since they come out so often. Still, its not Activision's fault since the only reason they put out so many is because consumers keep buying them. No one can blame Activision for giving the people what they want.

rockband is going the way of guitar hero just coming out all the time and now making bands like green day even though they released alot of DLC for green day

If they mean actually innovating the music game genre rather than rehash band related music games then I hope so. Rock Band 3 is going in the right direction of being able to utilize your own guitar. Though it's all good to see this come about, this seems like the last major thing that can possibly come about for the music genre. After this only track packs and DLC should be utilized.
