Activision has responded to Harmonix and MTV Gamesrecent statement regarding a compatibility patch that was supposed to allow Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock‘s controllers and those from other third-parties to work in Rock Band. According to Activision, the two companies from the other side are painting a very misleading picture.

Harmonix previously stated Activision is preventing Sony from releasing a patch, but the giant video game publisher says otherwise. Activision told GameDaily:

In fact, Harmonix and its parent company MTV Games/Viacom recently declined Activision’s offer to reach an agreement that would allow the use of Guitar Hero guitar controllers with Rock Band.

The letter went on, saying it’s the competitor that prevents use of Guitar Hero guitars in Rock Band. “Harmonix and MTV Games/Viacom are unwilling to discuss an agreement with Activision,” it read,

Similar to Harmonix’ “when consumers have choice, everyone wins,” Activision’s mantra is “to provide consumers with a seamless marriage of best-in-class hardware and software.” Activision also said, “We are focusing our efforts on innovating hardware and software that are designed to work together, work flawlessly and provide an enjoyable gaming experience.”
