The music rhythm games used to be one of the biggest in gaming. But after the 2008 recession gamers had less money and there were so many music games that it was neither necessary nor affordable to keep buying them or their plastic peripherals. Music rhythm games aren’t gone for good though as Harmonix recently announced Rock Band 4.
Approximately diddly squat is known about Rock Band 4 other than the fact that Harmonix has ditched their MTV overlords in an effort to make the game a purer experience. Harmonix isn’t going totally solo though, as the developer has now announced that Mad Catz will be co-publishing Rock Band 4 later this year.
