During today's Activision Blizzard conference call, Activision Publishing CEO Mike Griffith boasted of a "robust lineup" of three new Guitar Hero
titles dropping before the midpoint of the year: Guitar Hero: Metallica
in Q1 as well as "a new Guitar Hero
game for the Nintendo DS" and "a separate greatest hits compilation Guitar Hero
game" in calendar Q2, (through June). In case that's not clear, the Guitar Hero Greatest Hits
pack (or GH2
as we're likely to think of it) will include "full-band versions of some of the most popular songs from previous Guitar Hero
games and will be made available for the 360, PS3 and Wii."
Something tells us that despite some healthy competition from the likes of Rock Band
, with products like this "greatest hits compilation" on the way, we're not going to be ripping our Guitar Hero
tracks anytime soon.
