Activision: still acting like douches
Heres the skinny.

So I wasn't sure who had heard/posted about this, so I thought I'd throw it up on the ol' c-blog.

Now for those of you to lazy to click, basically Activision has come out and said they want Harmonix to pay them in order to release the compatibility patch for Rock Band.

Now at first you might say, "well that seems reasonable, they only want money for their hard earned work, right?" Well I'd have to disagree with you....

Because you're wrong.

First of all, I think its unfair of Activision to ask Harmonix for money to mod their own friggin game. Yes its true that the controller's themselves are made by Activision and they deserve to be paid for their work. But think about this logically. We'll still have to buy the controllers, and in the end Activision will get money no matter what. It seems to me like the only reason they want this deal is to make even more money. Which brings me to my next point...

By doing this Activision is basically dicking around a group of their own loyal consumers. Think about it, who do you know that owns Rock Band, but not guitar hero 3?

So I say to you Activision, stop being a bunch of douches.
