Activision forecasts further declines for the music game market during the coming year...

Despite an unprecedented rate of decline in the music game market last year, Activision has stated that it believes the market for these types of games will decline still further in 2010.

"In 2010 we are anticipating further declines in the music genre overall as the casual consumer proves less robust and the business naturally continues to migrate from hardware bundles to software only sales," said Activision's CEO and President, Michael Griffith in a post-financial report conference call.

"This year fewer SKUs will service a broader audience. In 2009, we released 25 music SKUs and in 2010 we plan to release less than 10. In 2010, we will not want any PS2 SKUs or a high-priced Band Hero product," added Griffith.

"We are focusing our efforts against two major music base products. One, for Guitar Hero and the other, for DJ Hero, both of which will launch in the back half of the year," he said.

These are damning words from arguably the most prolific music game publisher in the world, and it might explain why EA doesn't appear to have signed an agreement with Harmonix to publish Rock Band 3 yet.

That's the way Guitar Hero 6 (Warriors of Rock) is going. I saw it at a pre-E3 press event last month and "Loud and fast" are precisely the words I'd use to describe Guitar Hero 6's angle.

Rather than moving towards its casual audience, which is what Guitar Hero has been doing for the last two or three years, Guitar Hero 6 is going back to the core GH gamers that play until their fingers bleed.

For me if it's a song i like and something fun to play even if it's easy it's a great track choice. you sound like my idiot lil brother who thinks loud and fast is the only way to go.

Dylans actually worked with some insane guitarist. they should use the song dirge from the planet waves album, robby robertson from "the band" shreds that entire album. also, the song tombstone blues might be sick, mike bloomfields badass.

just cause the songs don't make your fingers blister doesn't mean they suck fast music doesn't equal good music, sultans of swing will be fun as hell along with under pressure, smells like teen spirit, what i got, rock show, and more just cuase a song isn't near impossible to beat on the game doesn't make it suck. for me if it's a song i like and something fun to play even if it's easy it's a great track choice. you sound like my idiot lil brother who thinks loud and fast is the only way to go
