Er, I thought it was about the game itself.

I think these journalists have failed.
I'm a communist. Really.

Silly activision, systems for electronically simulating participation by a user in a pre-recorded musical performance are for gibson!

Aaaaand I'll never buy a guitar from them. If I happen to like something they make I'll friggin steal it, I hate this kind of stuff, and I hate that its actually a plausible endeavor for big corporations to pursue. As if they don't swindle enough money out of their customers with their overpriced guitars.
We're only strays.

Damn them for forgetting that head mounted display thingy maflager (that is the technical term atleast)

Gibson lost their other cases, this is next on their "to do" list.

Imagine how many people bought guitars after playing this game, should be thanking them, not sueing.

one guy on the gibson sues MTV and EA article says

"So is Gibson so mad that real guitar sales are down they're suing anything remotely related to it? Watch out, Kotaku! You're encouraging people to buy Rock Band & GH! Gibson will probably sue you next. Along with Gamestop, Gizmodo, Target, and the maker of jelly beans."

tyronelab posts

"federal lawsuit against GameStop, Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart, Amazon, and Toys "R" Us.
http://www.joystiq.com/2008/03/21/g...ajor-retailers/"

found that a bit funny

but this is a really doucebag move and its making me hate gibson. I mean their ****ty UG articles are one thing.. but this is ridiculous. Wouldnt karaoke classify under their suit?

gibsons sued a bunch of people
i think they just need the money


Thing is, they don't need the money at all. You wouldn't either if you charged $4k for a guitar that probably cost -$1k to make.

Their actually suing both EA, activision but also MTV.

Quote by Article
This new lawsuit relates to the same U.S. Patent involved in the lawsuit filed by Gibson Guitar recently against various retailers in the same court. Gibson Guitar had made good faith efforts to enter into a patent license agreement with the defendants in this case. The defendants have not responded in a timely manner with an intent to enter into negotiations for a patent license agreement. Gibson Guitar had no alternative but to bring the suit, and it will continue to protect its intellectual property rights against any and all infringing persons.


I think that explains Gibson's reasoning about all this... but they are being a little bitchy about it. I don't think they'd have any money woes if they would just lower the prices on their guitars. Then people could actually be able to AFFORD them AND they would sell. Simple, isn't it?

Why Gibson waited three years to file this lawsuit, instead of doing it when the first Guitar Hero was launched back in 2005 is also questionable. Maybe it has something to do with the billion dollars the franchise has sold since then.


Maybe? lol

You people complain about Gibson too much. They have my support at least.. mainly because I don't like Guitar Hero, yet I do love Gibson.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

That's it, I'm putting a boycott on Gibson products... actually I just can't afford them
