Neversoft Get Bitchy, Call Out Rock Band's...Cymbals

Illustration for article titled Neversoft Get Bitchy, Call Out Rock Bands...Cymbals

Neversoft, Harmonix, we get it. You guys make competing music games. There's beef. But is there really any need to get so damn...petty? Here's Guitar Hero director Brian Bright, on Harmonix's decision to include cymbals on their Rock Band 2 drum kit:

I don't know how far ahead they planned that - we obviously revealed [our drum kit] much earlier than they did...I've a feeling there was a: 'Oh s***! There's cymbals! How can we put cymbals on our kit?' That would be the easiest way without having to rewire everything and re-engineer the entire circuit board.


Brian. Harmonix invented Guitar Hero. They then invented Rock Band, which GH World Tour is now , for want of a better word, copying. Might be for the best if you keep the "innovation" smack talk to a minimum. GH dev mocks Rock Band cymbals [Eurogamer]

ROckBand 2 over Guitar Hero:WT everyday, though the fact trhat you can finnaly use your RB stuff on GH makes me think about getting it, then the whole Activision can't make good games aspect.

the only Activision game that is even worth Playing are the Call of Duty games andd thoes are only published by Activision, Infinity Ward deserves the Credit. I don't count Call of Duty 3 that game had potential but the game seemed rushed and I would get stuck on corners when I walked and had a lot of Last Gen problems that should have been eliminated by now.
