In a perfect example of bullshit at its finest, Activision has blocked the release of a compatibility patch for Rock Band PS3. The promised patch would have allowed guitar compatibility and support for third party peripherals on Rock Band, including Activision’s Guitar Hero III controller. Harmonix submitted this patch nearly two weeks ago and had it approved by Sony for a December 4 release.
However, Activision gave PS3 players and Harmonix the proverbial finger by objecting to the patch. The reasons for this aren’t readily apparent (other than Activision being an ass hat), but Sony still has the patch in their keeping - and there it will stay until something changes. A boycott of Guitar Hero III perhaps?
Happy holidays to you too, Activision.
