Harmonix created a patch, which was submitted to Sony on December 4th, this patch would have allowed the Guitar Hero III controller to function with Rock Band. However this patch will not be making it to your PS3, Why? Because Activision objected to the Patch, they do not want there controller to work with rock band.
Now am I the only one that thinks this is extremely stupid on Activision’s part? I was planning on buying the GH3 bundle pictured above. Why? because I’d be getting a bunch of new songs in GH3, and a 2nd controller to function as the bass guitar on Rock Band, once I found out about Activision blocking the Patch I said forget it, why pay for the bundle now? I already have Rock Band, Which in my opinion is a far better game.
Honestly I don’t know what Activision was thinking, Granted yes Rock Band is a competing game but the second I leared they were releasing the bundle with only a single controller I would have created the patch myself, look at how many people will be needing a second controller if they want to rock the entire band, in comes GH3 to the rescue, there sales would have rocketed.
As far as I’m concerned I have no intention of buying GH3 unless this patch is released.
