Last week we learned how Courtney Love is planning to sue Activision for turning Kurt Cobain's corpse into a performing monkey in Guitar Hero 5. For some reason, she has a problem with Activision forcing a likeness of her dead husband to perform contemporary pop songs. Thank Christ then, that Jon Bon Jovi has stepped in to support her and defend Cobain's honor.

"I don't know that I would have wanted it either," said Mr. Bon Jovi, when asked about Activision's necromantic puppetry. "To hear someone else's voice coming out of a cartoon version of me? I don't know. It sounds a little forced.

"I had the paperwork, they wanted me to be on that game and I just passed. But no-one even broached the subject with me that I would be singing other people's stuff. I don't know how I would have reacted to that."

According to Activision's lawyers, the evil publisher has done nothing wrong and hasn't used Cobain in any way that Love didn't authorize. Still, Activision better listen to Bon Jovi. If they're not careful, he won't sell them "Living on a Prayer" again.

Enough teasing: Vib-Ribbon is headed to PlayStation Network

There was an out-of-nowhere nod to Vib-Ribbon at Sony's E3 press conference this year, and then nothing. No follow-up announcement. That wasn't very nice at all. But everything will be better, soon enough: the cult PlayStatio...more
