The Onion Settles Gibson Vs. Guitar Hero

Kotaku writes: "It's difficult to see Gibson and Harmonix/MTV fight over patents-like watching your once ice-cream-loving parents argue about the financial merits of eating in-the fun has been sucked from dessert and nothing that Bryers can say will fix it.

So does Gibson's 1990's filing entitle them to a a piece of the Guitar Hero pie? No clue. Luckily we have the Onion who ran some "man on the street" responses to the difficult situation. Our favorite was from Bruce LaSaard, Elevator Installer. "Excuse me, but after last week's championship game at Ray's Creekside Tavern, I believe it is I who owns Guitar Hero."

Well said, fictitious man-on-the-street. Well said, indeed."

The story is too old to be commented.

Gibson have always been extortionists. Currently in the UK it costs around £1200 ($2379) upwards for a brand new Gibson Les Paul Standard and the quality control is horrendous! Do Not waste your money; try Vintage ( ) Tokai, Burny or Epiphone instead.
