Hey Activision! Fuck You Too! Activision Screws Gamers!!

Those of you who own Rock Band and Guitar Hero III for PS3 are aware that the Les Paul Guitar controller won't work for Rock Band. Harmonix, the folks behind Rock Band, developed a patch and Activision is essentially blocking its release (See Google News for complete coverage ).

Activision deserves the shit storm it is receiving. A lot of people are speaking up and I'm adding my voice to the choir. I'm mad as hell and I'm going to let my little peace of the metal world know about it. Activision isn't screwing Harmonix, the developer behind Rock Band. It's screwing the fans, gamers everywhere. Everyone wins with open standards. We get better gaming experiences and the businesses behind them will make even more money.

A METALSETLISTS' FIRST, I encourage you all to withhold your Activision purchases until the matter is resolved. Contact the company

Quoting a fellow gamer at the Rock Band site:
