As most of you know, Activision have already announced that they are looking to triple the amount of Guitar Hero titles by 2010.
It seems that to reach this goal, Activision is going to be releasing themed games instead of the usual titles with various songs and artists.
We have already seen the Aerosmith game and Metallica are getting their own game in the first quarter of next year as well.
I know that both bands have a huge fan base but neither of them really appeal to me. A new name has appeared that has me rather excited though, Jimi Hendrix.
This has come out of an Rolling Stone interview with Slash from Guns n’ Rosesm who supposedly convinced Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler to do Guitar Hero in the first place. He seems convinced that there will be a Jimi Hendrix version and I really hope he’s right.
While I still don’t think Activision needs to milk the series the way they intend to, making themed games is far better for the consumers as you won’t necessarily like all the bands or artists being featured.
