This is better than a telenovela.

What kind of possible agreement could Activision need? The fact that the 360 already allows compatibility means there shouldn't need to be one. I hate being screwed over, even if its unintentional, so since I can't return GHIII, I'm just going to avoid buying Activision games until they resolve this matter.

The 360 version allows it because it isn't proprietary Activision technology inside the controller, it is proprietary MS tech that Rock Band also utilizes. PS3 is open, so the guitar is proprietary Activision tech and as such, does not work on Rock Band. Activision of course wants a cut back for this, but IMO all they are doing is hurting sales. The only way to get an Activision controller in the first place is to buy GHIII so allowing Rock Band to use the controller doesn't hurt their sales of GHIII in any way.

How does Activision abusing the PS3 users is greedy Bill's fault ? Please explain and specify if you are an Activision Fanboy or a PS3 fanboy (or a human, because humans hate B. Gates)

Can these two companies just end their cat fight and do whats right for PS3 users?

I am assuming the agreement would involve some form of monetary compensation and that is the reason why HMX refused.

Definitely sounds like "reach a (monetary) agreement". Can't they just pull hair and slap each other like the teenage girls they obviously are, release the patch and have this over with?
