Rock stars, I’m sorry. Activision will stop selling downloadable songs for Band Hero, DJ Hero and the entire Guitar Hero franchise on March 31st – so if you haven’t yet nabbed all the tunes you want, you’d better be quick.

There’s some light remaining in the dark: Guitar Hero servers will remain online, and any songs that you’ve purchased in any game before the cut-off date will still be completely playable.
If there’s still a few gaps in your musical library, act fast: Select songs on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii will be available at a discount for the next two weeks – but once they’re gone, they’re gone.
We knew this day was coming. Peripheral-based music/rhythm games have plummeted in popularity over the past few years, and there’s been no new Guitar Hero release (boxed or DLC) since 2011.
Still, it’s a sad day for music fans – we don’t know the specific time that the servers will be closed, so don’t leave this one too late.
