I personally don't really care for Guitar Hero, but I think it's a load of bull what Activision is doing. It can't really be worth it for all the bad press. It's also scary to think that if their merger goes through, they'll be the world's largest gaming company - even dwarfing EA.

What a clever, clever name.

Activision has [url=http://activision.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/activision.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=19652&p_created=1197598466&p_s id=9EOPE8Ti&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p _sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm 93X2NudD04ODYzLDg4NjMmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2 PSZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX2 5sJnBfcGFnZT0x&p_li=&p_topview=1]replied[/url to the shit storm

To Music Gaming Fans:

The recent announcement by MTV Games/Viacom's Harmonix division that Activision is blocking Sony from releasing a patch and their plea to enable Rock Band software to work with Guitar Hero hardware paints a very misleading picture.

In fact, Harmonix and its parent company MTV Games/Viacom recently declined Activision's offer to reach an agreement that would allow the use of Guitar Hero guitar controllers with Rock Band. We have been and remain open to discussions with Harmonix and MTV Games/Viacom about the use of our technology in Rock Band. Unfortunately for Rock Band users, in this case Harmonix and MTV Games/Viacom are unwilling to discuss an agreement with Activision.

Activision's top priority is to provide consumers with a seamless marriage of best-in-class hardware and software. We are focusing our efforts on innovating hardware and software that are designed to work together, work flawlessly and provide an enjoyable gaming experience.

Best regards,

Activision


An offer "that would allow the use of Guitar Hero guitar controllers with Rock Band"? I read that as extortion. Activision wants to be paid.

You don't think they would let all this bashing slide do you?
