PS3 Rock Band Compatibility Spat

Two weeks ago, Harmonix created a software patch for the Sony PLAYSTATION 3 version of Rock Band that allowed for guitar compatibility and support for third party peripherals, including enabling use of Activision's Guitar Hero III controller with Rock Band. The compatibility patch was submitted, approved and had been scheduled for release by Sony on Tuesday, December 4. Unfortunately, Activision objected to the compatibility patch's release. The patch remains with Sony, but we have been told that it will unfortunately not be released due to Activision's continued objection.

This is ridiculous. Considering Activision's stance right now, when Guitar Hero IV ever comes out, who's going to want it. I haven't seen much DLC for GH3 lately...yet, WEEKLY for Rock Band. If this trend keeps up, by the time GH4 comes out, people will not care as much. We'll have our Rock Band loaded up with songs/ playing THAT game (with our newer peripherals by that time). Activision has nothing to lose by releasing the patch....make your fans happy!

People should write a well written, but concise letter of complaint to Sony, Activision, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and the consumer affairs department/Attorney General in your particular state.

It's important that you indicate in your correspondence that you are in communication with the Federal Trade Commission and the consumer affairs department of your particular state because they often have the ability to render considerable pressure even if there is little legally they can do. Additionally, no company wants an Attorney General or the FTC breathing down their necks.
