Guitar Hero on the PS3? |

If you follow the link, you’ll see that Harmonix is looking for next-gen developers. For example, the position of “Senior 3D Graphics Programmer” lists in its job description “Work closely with artists, designers, and fellow programmers to design and implement 3D graphical features using the latest state-of-the-art rendering techniques for next-generation consoles.

Harmonix is the developer of the hugely successful game Guitar Hero and its predecessors, Frequency and Amplitude. Last night Todd and I played Guitar Hero for a while, and Todd said that he can’t believe he’s seriously considering buying a PS2 just for the Harmonix music games.

So Harmonix is working on next-gen games, which is great! 😛 Does this mean they’re porting Guitar Hero? Or working on Guitar Hero 2? And what next-gen platforms are they talking about? PS3? Xbox 360? It’s unknown to us peons, of course, but I for one am anxiously awaiting word. – Harmonix Music Systems jobs

    Cool, but I don’t see what the PS3 would bring to Guitar Hero. Better Graphic? ok But the thing is, I don’t have time to look at the graphic while playing this games…

    BTW, In the last Wired magazine, they ask to Sid Mieier what was his favorite game… He said it change every month but that right now it is guitar hero

    If they stick with the same gameplay, upgraded hardware and graphics wouldn’t really improve the game experience. They will need to add new gameplay elements. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. I think that is the best type of game to make; it’s very fun and that market isn’t oversaturated yet, and it’s much easier to develop than a game like God Of War or GTA or Gran Turismo.

    The Guitar Hero developers did say that they would be able to do more with Blu-Ray’s disc capacity. They said they actually dropped certain features from the PS2 version due to disc space requirements. Seems kind of strange since audio is so easily compressed, but they did say that.
