RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

EA Planning Major Music Game

Posted on Wednesday, December 15 @ 08:47:02 Eastern by


Ever since the release of the original Guitar Hero, the music game genre has spread like wildfire. There's been over a handful of Guitar Hero releases and the Hero franchise now includes the likes of world-class DJs with DJ Hero. You can now live the fantasy of being in a band with Rock Band, or dance like Michael Jackson.

But after severely disappointing sales struck the entire music game genre this year, many believe that the consumer market is overly saturated with music games and the peripherals needed to play each game. EA, on the other hand, thinks all the genre needs is "one big hit" to recover.

The video game industry is no different than the movie, music or television business...

One big hit will change everything. And at EA, new hits are on the way.

These statements almost guarantee that EA is working on a new music franchise that they're putting much confidence in. Let's just hope that it isn't a one-hit wonder and can help keep the music genre competitive and continuing to grow.
