I'm gonna have to buy up all the guitar hero games, me and my son Sam play these together. Me and all the metal heads are gonna be disappointed because I was waiting for more bands to give up their music for this, oh well, at least I have VAN HALEN.

Activision released a bombshell today during their latest earnings report by announcing that the once-vaunted Guitar Hero franchise will be unceremoniously put to rest for the forseeable future.

"Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing's Guitar Hero business unit and discontinue development on its Guitar Hero game for 2011," the company said in a statement.
