User tunes key to music games
The developers of Rock Band and Guitar Hero have laid out their prognosis for music gaming in the latest issue of Edge, optimistically claiming music games will surpass sales of the previous generation on a new wave of user-created content.
Harmonix head Alex Rigopulos downplayed the notion that the genre was dying and instead offered a bullish look at its future. Rather than fading, Rigopulos and counterpart Brian Bright of Neversoft see continued growth in the years ahead thanks to the rise of user-created song or indie music.
"User-generated content will be absolutely critical to the ongoing success of the genre," Rigopulos told the magazine.
The forthcoming launch of Rock Band Network looks to make that future a reality for the series, whereas music creation tools have been a part of Guitar Hero for some time now.
