Over and over on the forums the HMX defenders & PS3 bashers, say dont blame HMX, blame sony. MS has XNA ps3 has nothing...
Imagine a different world. A world where Sony has there own version of XNA, and so does the Wii. Call them PsNA, and WiiNA.
So now you have 3 different systems, 3 different consoles, each with their own set of rules, their own quirks, their own language.
Each is open to HMX to create a RBN. So now you have 3 RBN's.
Every band chooses a system and only works with that one, each song then needs to be 'transfrered' to a different system, each system has its 'exclusive' period, etc etc
How would that solve the problem?
each system would be stuck with its own 'version' of songs and no one system would be able to access all the music.
How is this a solution to the problem?
Reality is that a solution to work across all platforms has to come from HMX. Not anyone else. Unless the intent is for one system to be the 'complete' RB system, and the other two systems just after thoughts for HMX to get the same money, but give less support.
