Activision may be looking into making a standalone karaoke game it appears. They just recently filed a patent on the name “Sing Hero”. Whether this game is actually something they have planned for the near future or they are just wanting rights to the name is uncertain. They also have acquired the name Drum Hero but we have yet to hear anything about that.
With DJ Hero on it’s way, it’s safe to say that we won’t be hearing much, if anything, about Sing Hero in the near future. For the time being they are focusing their attention on the upcoming DJ Hero game. After that, they will probably let us know about this Drum Hero game, that is if they are still planning to make the game. We are going to sell probably five or more ‘Hero’ games this year. We will see several Guitar Hero’s, a DJ Hero, and possibly even a Drum Hero yet this year.
If you are into these types of games it’ll be a good year for you. If you are more of an action gamer, I’m sorry to say, there’s not much coming your way from Activision in the near future. What’s your take on all of these instrument games? Do you think it’s really necessary or even smart of Activision to be putting it’s entire company name into the music gaming industry?
