I'm posting this in the hope that somebody from Harmonix will read this. I wasn't sure where else to really post this, so if anybody knows how I can contact Harmonix more directly, please let me know.
I'm in a wheelchair and can't use my legs because I'm a paraplegic. I love the Rock Band series and play the guitar, play the bass, and sing. The one thing I can't physically do is play the drums because it requires use of the foot pedal. The only time I ever get to play the drums is when I am with friends and we get an extra person to hit the foot pedal for me while I hit the drums. This isn't exactly a fun way to do it, but it's the only way that I can do so.
I'd like to strongly suggest an option available in future Rock Band games to bypass the pedal, so that all you have to play are the four drums. Without this, people like me (and I'm sure there are many more people like me out there playing Rock Band games) won't be able to enjoy an entire instrument... and that's a HUGE part of this game.
Thank you for your consideration!! (Again, does anybody know how I can contact Harmonix more directly? Thanks!)
