Guitar Hero Live To Shutter GHTV Online Portion

The return of Guitar Hero and Rock Band made a lot of fans nostalgic and remember a simpler time. One with big plastic accessories and cool soundtracks that they gathered with their friends to play. However, Guitar Hero Live was something that was very different from previous iterations of the franchise, and it was to set itself apart from the competition of Rock Band 4.

Now it looks like the time has come for Guitar Hero Live to be put out to pasture, as it has been announced that the online portion (GHTV) will be shutting down later this year.

This is a real shame but of course not entirely unexpected. It was one of those things where we knew it would happen, and it was only a matter of when.

I'm glad they're giving ample notice. I use Guitar Hero Live from time to time. It's such a fun game with plenty of great songs and I love the new controller layout. The issue is that most of my time was spent on this online portion... :( Offline-only would be... not so great. The soundtrack on the disc is okay but I couldn't see myself playing it more than a couple times, unlike Guitar Hero III and Rock Band 2 where I could play all those songs literally hundreds of times. Though "Bangarang" by Skrillex is one I've played a lot!

I will lament the shuttering of this service. At least this makes sense, unlike the shuttering of Miiverse. UGH. Sorry, I won't get on that tangent on here.

Game was trash. Wish they would just remaster the original trilogy in a bundle set...

I enjoyed it. The new guitar was a welcome change. Then always online portion was a terrible mistake.

I think the controls just didn't appeal like the previous game did the new guitar tried to make it more realistic but lost the fun feeling

Real shame the new guitar was so good but the online portion of this game was so slimy you had to buy tokens to play the songs u wanted or u could play the tv mode that just cycled through random songs
