Thank you for clarifying this, Harmonix. When Activision decided to block this patch, they probably weren't expecting it to get out in the open like this and backfire much, but I'm glad you guys are letting everyone know the truth. If they continue to block the release of this patch, I guarantee that I will never be buying another Guitar Hero franchise item in my life.
Here's hoping this situation turns around quickly. I'm off to send my e-mail to Activision now to let them know that they're in the process of losing a customer.
It's completely ridiculous that they would take sure a pro-active stance on prohibiting people from enjoying Guitar Hero III's hardware even more with another game.
Ok, so Activision is the enemy now. It's good to at least know who's what. Thank you for this update.
I'll reread for places that I can call and email and send complaint letters to, to activision.
I don't know this still doesn't sit right with me, why would Activision do this?
But why is there no patch to stop the 360's from working then? This all just screams PR bs to keep us quiet for awhile

I already e-mailed Activision, not only to encourage them to release the patch, but also to let them know that this would influence my decision to buy their products in the future. Between the Guitar Hero franchise and the fact that they're merging with Blizzard, that could stand to hurt...but dammit, they deserve it.
I also just sent a very strongly worded email to activision, and I do urge everyone on these forums to do the same. This isn't just about the ps3 compatibility, but about corporate responsibility to the consumer. This type of business is just rediculous, boycott, they'll have to listen.
So is there going to be a reduced compatibility patch for 360?
Dumb move by Activision, I was all set to go out and buy GH3. Glad I waited.
*Voice Chat, Trophies, Players Met!
*Also give us some exclusive songs since you reamed us with the OXM fiasco!
The list is piling up....really making me hate to love you guys.
Yes, of course, because HMX would say something that leaves them open to an almighty legal whipping!
COME ON MAN! THINK!
I just sent activision a letter as well. Hopefully they'll do an about-face on this ridiculous idea.
If not, anybody else in the bay area who wants to smash some guitars over at RedOctane?
