Console-less Guitar Hero on the way, says Kotick

Activision boss Bobby Kotick is his own man. He doesn’t need consoles to shovel his guitar-based brand of music game to the masses. No sir.

“You should expect to see many of our products to be playable on the television independent of a console,” he said this week, speaking at the Deutsche Bank Securities Technology Conference in San Francisco.

Like, seriously. He added:

“I think what the untethered Guitar Hero does is it maybe equals the playing field a little bit more and gives you leverage with first parties on downloadable content and the business model.”

This’d be awesome. Kotick won’t be able to threaten console manufacturers any more, however, which would be a bit rubbish.
