Activision Has 'Nothing But Love' for Harmonix, Not Giving Up On Guitar Hero

One of the many things we talked about with Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, in IndustryGamers' recent interview was the declining music space, and the fact that Guitar Hero and Rock Band creator Harmonix is now up for sale.

It would be nice in a way to see what Harmonix would do with Guitar Hero, coming back to the franchise they created.

[Insert Activision is evil comment here]

It would be Rock Band... it would suffer the same lack of evolution as both Rock Band and Guitar Hero... it would be no different...

I definetly don't play my rockband 1/2 as much as I used to, but Activison better keep their mitts off Harmonix. That company is amazing. Activision to this day is milking the life out of their franchises...

Gotta, say I'm getting tired of both Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Its like Madden.

Then I must say, I can't wait for Guitar Hero: Justin Bieber to come out. MAKE IT A REALITY ACTIVISION! I'm pretty sure it'll sell billions and Kotick's income rate will be exploded like diarrhea from a buffalo.

I love Rock Band but they need to make game expandable and not just the music collection. A weekly/daily challenge like Halo Reach would be interesting. Guitar is just a s*** hole of a music game and makes the genre look bad. I hope Activision passes or the whole genre is over and I best sell my music stuff now.
