I'm selling GH3.
I am a ps3 owner too so i sent my e-mail to activision if we all boycott there products they will see they made a mistake when there wallets are a little lighter.........
I have sent an email also to Activision but I also think we should express our disappointment to Sony as well. Maybe if we complain to Sony it will help try to get a resolution to this issue. I know Sony is not to blame here but they sure could help things.
Letter sent! I couldn't help but get in on this as i was waiting for this patch to purchase gh3 and now I don't have to.
I was all geared up to purchase "Guitar Hero 3" for 100 dollars to gain an extra controller for Rock Band pending the release of the compatibility patch. Unfortunately it seems like you guys don't want my 100 dollars, because you've decided to block Sony from posting the patch for us.
I guess I will keep my 100 dollars until spring and spend 60 of it on a second Rock Band guitar from Harmonix and keep the extra 40 dollars I save.
That's okay with you though right? You are a multi-billion dollar company, and my 100 dollars is of no concern to you. You didn't get to be such a big company by being nice to people now did you!
Keep up the good work and thank you for saving me my hard earned money,
fun stuff... I'm kind of glad they blocked the patch and gave us a reason to ***** at them. I think they screwed up bad with guitar hero 3 (though i do like the guitar itself) and have been waiting for a reason to send them funny notes.
there was another post on this forum a few days ago, it listed a website that has listings of 'high up' people at major corporations.
that post lists www.planetfeedback.com and to send your letter through them, who can in turn help make sure it get into the right person.
maybe it could be an alternative way (or aditional way) to contact activision with your complaint.
i, myself, will send a letter by both means shortly.
basically you just fill out a couple of questions to give them an idea of where exactly this response should go, whether it be a compliment, complaint, suggestion or something else. then a place to voice your concern, submit it and they review it and submit it for you.
its free, and easy, maybe its worth a shot? but please people, keep it respectable. there are ways to get your point across without insults and curse words. the more respectful your language is, the better the chance it actually passes planetfeedback's review process.

Theory: the rapidity with which a site posts this story will be inversely proportional to the percentage of their advertising revenue that is due to Activision. The next couple of days could get pretty ugly in the world of gaming journalism.
I've sent my emails as well.
But what about a patch for the guitar hero I & II guitars ??????
Are they not Harmonix products ??
START THE BOYCOTT OF GUITAR HERO 3 NOW!
Seriously. Are these chimps at Activision full-fledged r3tards? If they allowed cross-compatibility, they would sell more hardware. Apparently, they have their heads too far up their asses to realize this would help their bottom line.
And also, why should Activision get to dictate whether this patch comes out or not? Last I checked, they don't have any say - Sony does. Way to take it in the rear, Sony.

My email.... Let me know what you think.
My name is William Stephens. And I purchased Guitar Hero 3 the day it was released. While it is not a bad game, I have to sell it, and both controllers I purchased for it. This is one less game and two less controllers that you will sell. One of the main reasons that I purchased this game was so that I could play BOTH rockband and guitar hero. This gets to my reason for this email. The announcement that you have blocked the patch allowing your guitar to function in rockband has me more than a little upset. This also upsets several friends of mine that were going to purchase your game so they could play BOTH games. I do not understand why you would not allow this, as it would only help the sales of your guitar and possibly game. I am a fan of the music genre, and I feel that I have been cheated by your unfair business decision. I have purchased all available downloadable content for GH3, but sadly, this will be no more. I realize that it probably will not hurt your company, but I must speak with my wallet. On that note, I will not be purcasing anymore games from this company, as I can only see them as makers of both foolish business choices, and ill advised polices. I will be contacting you regularly to voice my displeasure with the childish stance you have taken with this issue. I will also encourage anyone with even a mild interest in videogames about the behavior of your company. I would appreciate a response, however, if you are going to send me a nonpersonal, canned pr message, don't bother. I hate to take my dollars elsewhere, but that is exactly what your company has forced me to do.
edit: I sent it to corporate communication
