Megadeth Hopes High-Level 'Guitar Hero' Meetings Produce Results


Once Metallica got their own Guitar Hero game, we all knew it could only be a matter of time before their fellow metal mavens Megadeth came forth with a response. Sadly, Megadeth has not yet secured their own game. However, frontman Dave Mustaine claims something "over-the-moon" may be in the works with Activision and Neversoft.

"I have recently had two very important high-level meetings with the people from Activision and Neversoft, and we are talking about a lot of things, but a Guitar Hero box set is not as attractive to me and the people from Guitar Hero as the new idea that they offered me, as the creative stuff that we are talking about is over-the-moon!," Mustaine said in response to a fan message on

Mustaine sounds pretty confident in his own dealings with the Guitar Hero folks. He does, however, fear that other parties may interfere with Megadeth's quest to break new ground in gaming.

"I just hope that someone doesn't stand in the way of this happening," he said. "I know that there are a lot of really damaging results from our mothership (Warner) having some legal disputes with YouTube and Guitar Hero to name just a few."

Mustaine used some big words in his response without describing anything concrete. I'm just assuming that when he refers to a "Guitar Hero box set" he's talking about what most of us would imagine if he announced "Guitar Hero: Megadeth." So the question is, what's bigger than that? Their own console? Replica guitar peripherals?

What do you think Mustaine has in mind? Would you like to see a "Guitar Hero: Megadeth" game? Sound off in the comment section below.
