Well, considering I love Guitar Hero and am getting GHIII for Christmas and I don't like Rock Band, this fails to affect me.

There isn't another controller? So there's a game out that absolutely no one can play?

You would have to buy another bundle just for the guitar. Eventually, both GH and RB will have extra guitars to sell, sometime in 2008. It's telling to me that Harmonix is willing support third parties as it applies to controllers. Activision is going for lock-in. Interoperability is good for the gamer; unfortunately, Activision is sacrificing our interests in a petty attempt to screw a competitor. It's very short sighted. Not only might they sell more hardware, they would be generating excitement for games of both systems and the genre on the whole. Everybody wins.

Instead, Activision is being corporate dick and that violates The Law.

Ah, if only being a dick was actually a violation of the law.

Haha, with the "Banned Asshole" user title.

Yeah activision pretty much sucks.

They also put 10 zillion more ads and product placement type things in GH3.

Screw you Ed, we can do whatever we want. We just merged with Blizzard Entertainment to form the super-mega-ultra corporation: Activision Blizzard. Now, with our powers combined, we can see to it that you the only guitars you'll be using will cost more than your car.

Also, the new Activision Blizzard doesn't believe in coupons, rebates, or customer satisfaction.
