Is Guitar Hero becoming Guitar Zero? One of the biggest breakout hits of the last few years has undoubtedly been Activision's Guitar Hero franchise. From its humble beginnings as a clone of Konami's Guitar Freaks, to its current status as arguably the biggest franchise in gaming, Guitar Hero has become more than just a gaming phenomenon. It has become a bona-fide money-making phenomenon, launching Activision into the number one video game publisher spot ahead of traditional giant Electronic Arts.
So is Activision's love of Guitar Hero and the money it brings in going to lead to the Guitar Hero series ending up in the same mess Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is currently in?
