Guitar Hero Reality show!? You've got to be kidding me?

By no means am I a fan. Personally I hate those games just like any other party games that are out there. But I also don''t hate on people that like them.

But getting back to topic, my sister is always going to some celebrity gossips sites called perezhilton.com and he's always reporting on things that people don't really need to hear. So she went to it today and saw an article talking about a reality show or possibly a live world tour. Here's what the article had to say:


Sources are saying that the widely popular video game could be spawning its own reality television show or even perhaps a real-life concert tour.

The franchise is owned by Activision (the brains behind Worlds of Warcraft) and CEO Bobby Kotick sees the potential in the video game. While he thinks it "might make for a good TV show or a good concert tour," he wouldn't comment on the speculation of a movie as well.

But don't worry video gamers, they haven't forgetten about the actual GAMES. Activision Blizzard this year will release several new games including DJ Hero, which uses a turntable controller for hip-hop, Motown and other dance music, and Band Hero, which caters to younger players and features top-40 hits. : Van Halen and : Smash Hits also are set for release.

We think this might be taking it too far.


In case you still find this hard to believe, than here's the link: http://perezhilton.com/2009-05-09-guitar-hero-tv

What do you guys think? Good or bad idea?

I don't like it. I doubt many people here will.
But I'm sure theres an audience for it. People like stupid stuff.

I just hope things don't go full circle and the show inspires a Guitar Hero game based on the show.

Yes.

And as much I am not really into Guitar Hero some one needs to die for the injustices it is causing. This whole movement has gone too far.

Wasn't there something on tv for Rock Band?

Guitar Hero IS going too far. Waaaay too far. Too many games slated for release, I mean there are more than 5 "(something) Hero" games coming out THIS YEAR alone! And now a reality TV show? *shivers*

Yup.  And it was lame.

Nerdraged because this is incorrect.

No that would be awesome. Then we could finally add another game to this page.

Has anyone taken a look at Bobby lately and thought that this is going to be the guy that runs the Activision gravy train into the rock face of a giant fucking mountain?

Sometimes, I do.

How would that even work?

I'm going to be positive and assume this is sarcasm.

As for the GH TV show, I think it's a great idea...provided this was still 1982 and the networks needed something to fill a spot between Super Password and Press Your Luck.  But, since it's not, I think it's a terrible idea.  Every year an "official" air-guitar championship is held.  Does anyone want to see a televised edition of that competition?  No, and that's basically what GH & RB are.  No one wants to watch a karaoke championship game show, either.  Just because they can put something on TV, doesn't mean they should.
