Activision Refutes Harmonix Guitar Hero Patch Claim - Fight! >
2007/12/13 23:27:15: Posted by DM
Earlier today, we told you that, according to Harmonix, Activision is blocking a patch for the Sony PS3 which would allow the use of the Guitar Hero guitar with the Rock Band software. Well, Activision has responded, and they are none too happy to be blamed. They are fully refuting MTV and Harmonix, and they claim it was actually Harmonix that declined Activision's offer to reach an agreement. And we were just saying we have not had a really good "he said she said" argument in the gaming industry for a while. Click read more for the full Activision statement.

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,

I don't care what Activision says. If there is a patch that is ready to be released, let them release it. All I see here is Activision saying something like "well they didn't develop the patch with us, so they can't use it." That's a bunch of crap. It's available, let them release it.

This is Activision saying 'We want to get paid to release the patch'.
