Konami Levels Lawsuit Over Rock Band 100°
July 12, 2008 // 8:27 pm - Gaming is big business, and just like any big business, it has its fair share of courtroom proceedings. The latest big lawsuit is Konami Corp. vs. Viacom Inc.'s Harmonix studio; the former party claims Harmonix's Rock Band game violates patents.

According to Bloomberg, Konami issued patents in 2002 and 2003 that "relate to simulated musical instruments, a music-game system and a musical-rhythm matching game." They are now arguing that Rock Band goes against Konami's acquired patents, and they're demanding cash compensation, plus an order that would stop Viacom and Harmonix from utilizing...

Ion Reveals $299.99 Price for Premium Rock Band Drums 50°
July 11, 2008 // 10:01 pm - Thought $180 for the original Rock Band package was expensive? You ain't seen nothing yet.

The official Web site for Ion's professional Drum Rocker (as recently revealed in Game Informer) lists a $299.99 price for the deluxe drum controller. Only the Xbox 360 version of the set is currently available for pre-order, though Wii and PS3 editions are "expected to ship later in the year," according to the site.

It's important to note that this is not the official drum set that will be packaged with Rock Band 2, but rather an...

Rock Band Guitars Incompatible with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith 500°
July 1, 2008 // 7:55 pm - Most likely you remember the stink that was caused when Activision refused to approve the patch that would allow Rock Band guitars to be compatible with Guitar Hero 3, even though GH 3 controllers were accepted for Rock Band.

Activision cited concerns about intellectual property, and generally infuriated a lot of people by pulling a bait-and-switch on Rock Band, leaving more than a few gamers out in the cold.

So time has passed, and time heals all wounds right? It was with a hopeful heart that some people bought a copy of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, and tried firing it up...

GameStop prices GH: WT bundle at $190, play Rock Band instead 100°
May 23, 2008 // 9:55 pm - The general consensus seems to be that Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock was a gross misstep for the series. It appeared that Neversoft made up the note charts rather arbitrarily, with many songs being made difficult for difficulty's sake.

And Rock Band, which came out just over a month after GH III, has taken the videogame world by storm (well, in North America – it came out today in Europe) with its rocking party atmosphere and smart packaging of DLC.

However, as we've now seen, Activision is attempting to cash in on the "full band of plastic instruments" phenomenon...

Konami joins Rock Band Revolution Tour 50°
May 16, 2008 // 7:21 pm - Konami has unveiled a multi-platform, multi-instrument rhythm title called Rock Revolution.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are being handled by Zoe Mode, a Brighton based developer who made EyeToy Play Sports and collaborated with Sony London Studio on Singstar.

The DS and Wii editions will be developed by HB Studios, who are just wrapping up Big Beach Sports for Wii.

Only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will include extra peripherals. Konami boasts that the game will feature "the most realistic drum peripheral on the market," with six pads and a kick pedal that...

Metallica 50°
May 16, 2008 // 7:04 pm - During a promotional trailer for the band's forthcoming studio album, Metallica has declared said that its music is the "most requested" on both Rock Band and Guitar Hero.

You may remember a few years back that the aging US rock chuggers were on the verge of appearing in their very own vide game under the Vivendi / Sierra moniker. The "high action, third person vehicle combat game packed with fully customized vehicles and weaponry, endless terrain and desperate, murderous opponents" was due out in 2005 but it never happened. There was even going to be voice-overs from band and background...

Rock Band: 3 Million Units Shipped, 10 Million Songs Downloaded 50°
May 3, 2008 // 4:07 pm - According to GameDaily, Viacom (parent company of MTV, which owns Harmonix), has announced that Rock Band has managed to ship "more than three million bundled units" since its launch last November. That's certainly a healthy number, and one that likely rivals - if not trumps - Activision's competing title, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

On top of this, Harmonix has revealed that over 10 million songs have been downloaded off the Internet, which only proves that those downloadable packs are both highly sought-after and extremely lucrative. And much like Grand Theft Auto IV and Take-Two,...
