- The Guitar Hero videogame - where players use a guitar-shaped controller to "play" along with musical notes that stream across the screen - was released in 2005, and the franchise has become a cultural phenomenon that has done over $1 billion in business.
- Gibson has been a high-profile partner in the game, licensing Activision the right to model its controllers on Gibson guitars and use their likenesses in the game.
- The media has reported that Guitar Hero has "saved guitar music," because it has inspired many people to pick up the real thing (which, we can assume, has brought some nice business Gibson's way).
What I'm wondering is: Is there something wrong with Gibson deciding to do this now?[poll id=30]Got a side in this guitar duel? Tell us about it in the comments section.
