Looks like it's time to rekindle the old music rivalry.

It'll be Guitar Hero Live vs. Rock Band 4 and even though we don't have a ton of details on the latter, the recent unveiling of the former seems promising.

But I suppose the real question is this: Do we really care? Yeah, I know this particular industry was worth a couple billion dollars during its heyday in the last generation, but haven't we moved past it? Will this new "war" really be a huge draw in terms of press coverage and community discussion? As both franchises will release re-imagined iterations, I'm sure that's worthy of at least some discussion.

I'm just not sensing the a rejuvenation of interest. Doesn't seem like everyone is jumping up at down at the prospect of seeing these two franchises return. I wonder…once a fad dies, it's difficult to resurrect it. Sometimes, you have to wait a long time; perhaps even a few decades, as is often the case in fashion. It wasn't that long ago that Activision burned us all out on a hundred Guitar Hero entries. Are we really ready for another go-around?

What's your read?

I'm really excited for rock band 4 but guitar hero should stay dead especially since it was their fault for so many releases of its own game and over saturation of the music genre for videogames

I think they both go down in a ball of flames.

Everyone I know who played these games got burned out and is over them. Except for this one guy who's a little too good at the drums on RB. He has a whole custom kit and is in the top 10 in the world in a lot of songs. Yet refuses to play a real drum set because he says he can't play without the note chart.

It might appeal to kids who were too young to play them at the time though, so maybe I'm completely off.

Until they make a Ukulele Hero or a Bongo Band I could care less about these games

I can't wait for Rock Band. Especially if they can keep with their promise of letting us use all the old instruments and play all our purchased songs. As for GH, I never liked it so I will not be getting this version. Neither game will break records but there will be a niche crowd for both games. I will be part of the RB crowd, for sure.

I think with a new generation, people are up to revisit most any genre they previously enjoyed.
