Harmonix sorting PS3 problems: Statement

Harmonix says it's working hard to resolve problems with the PS3 version of Rock Band - including, by the sound of it, the lack of compatibility with Guitar Hero guitars. The developer said in a statement issued to the press on Wednesday:

"Some of you have contacted us about the PS3 edition of Rock Band - from issues with guitar compatibility to frustration that stand-alone guitars and drums for Rock Band have not yet hit stores.Please know that these issues have our full attention. We are listening and we read everything that is posted on our forums. We are committed to providing the best play experience possible and working hard to ensure that we solve these problems as soon as possible. We promise to keep you updated and, in the meantime, we thank you for your patience."

the problem isn't the game, its the console

You'd think everyone would realize it by now. It is too bad to see developers waste time working on a game for the PS3, wasting their time/money with very little pay off. When they could easily put all effort into just a 360 version and not waste their resources on an undesirable console.

The "undesirable console" thats currently outselling the 360?

Man, when will u guys realize that the PS3 is selling just as well as the 360. I'm not arguing over which one is better, but look at the numbers, they're both selling equally.

games4fun3948d ago

you two are pathetic, so how is eternal sonata doing? its an old game i know but if you keep bringing up old topics...

jctoyou3948d ago

Play Behind!

i have the rock band version of 360 at 80k while ps3 at 40k in terms of sales :/

actas1233948d ago

a patch means that there is a problem in the software. If there was a problem with the hardware there won't be patches at all..

You also said that HD DVD was out DOMINATING Europe in sales even though 75% of the market was Blu Ray. Go back to circle jerking your buddies.

PS3 Limps on and on3948d ago (Edited 3948d ago )

Did you guys notice that Madden 08 has a pretty high attach rate on the PS3? This despite the world famous 30 frame rates per second?

People don't know about this crap, they think Rock Band is Rock Band.

Just like shoppers don't go around thinking of XBOX 360 as Red Ring of Death. XBOX 360 is XBOX 360.

EA still has MS' Ballz in their mouth and they seem to like the taste. EA is a third rate company, they should not focus on one console since they are supposedly neutral and are considered a big company. F U EA. Sony made you a lot of money and this is how you repay them? ungrateful morons.

N4GayFanturds3948d ago (Edited 3948d ago )

break over 1 million sales (in the US). Not one. R:FoM & Motorstorm are the top sellers.

360 owners are game buyers - P$3 owners watchers??

So, why would devs bust their BALLZ to make a decent game for that system? Look at the sales of CoD4 for both systems. IW wasted their time on the PniS3.

EDIT @5.1:

Install base & headstart has NOTHING to do with why CoD4/PS3 is underselling CoD4/360. Nothing. 13+ million users did NOT buy CoD4 on 360. PS3 is how many millions strong & has yet to break 1 million on any game sales.

"ONCE YOU SEE UT III, GTA IV, DMC4, MGS4, LBP, Killzone 2, Burnout Paradise (PS3 version confirmed as more superior) and Gran Turismo 5 to name a few. Those titles are all potential million+ sellers."

Fanboy talk for Sony's slogan: Wait B3yond

Fighter3948d ago

Do your homework before you come up with the numbers. The PS3 has already surpassed the Xbox 360's first year sales in less than a year and they will likely takeover by next year.

I'll admit that the PS3's library is really small right now amd the 360 has more titles that gamers want so it makes sense that 360 owners buy a lot of games. Once you see UT III, GTA IV, DMC4, MGS4, LBP, Killzone 2, Burnout Paradise (PS3 version confirmed as more superior) and Gran Turismo 5 to name a few. Those titles are all potential million+ sellers.
