Sony Neutral On Rock Band Patch Issue

Harmonix once said if the consumers demanded it, they will do it. Consumers demanded a patch for Rock Band to support Guitar Hero III's Les Paul PLAYSTATION 3 controllers, so they got to work. They submitted a patch to Sony Computer Entertainment America, but Activison objected to its release. Sony's stand?

"This is a matter that needs to be resolved between Harmonix/MTV and Activision regarding Intellectual Property," said a SCEA spokesperson to 1UP. "At SCEA, we of course want this resolved and to ensure the best possible gaming experience. We encourage MTV, Harmonix and Activision to discuss this among themselves so there can be an amicable resolution in the best interest of the consumer."
Hopefully, MTV and Harmonix will force to patch to a go-ahead, as this doesn't really give us much answers. Hopefully we will see the patch early 2008.

"There will be new game modes, split-screen cooperative, split-screen versus, an editor for the battling ships, remastered music and sound effects, enhanced visual effects, a music attack mode and clan support."

New SSX Coming? Hint in Burnout Paradise Demo

If you downloaded the new Burnout Paradise demo from the PLAYSTATION Store, you may have noticed a hint of SSX's next coming in Paradise City.

Listening to Crash FM radio in your car from Radio Big, SSX3's DJ Atomika hosts. She mentions getting a message from Mac Fraser, one of the playable characters of SSX3. His message? That the snow on the mountain is falling and should be ready to ride by winter.

If you ask me, that highly suggests a new SSX is coming to consoles. Oh, why the wait?
