Beatles Rock Band on Fox News

edited June 2009 in The Beatles: Rock Band
So I have the tv on in the background while I'm working and they just did a segment on Rock Band: Beatles on Fox News. The correspondent was giving a report from E3 and after the wrap-up the talking head asks her (trying to sound intelligent and hip), "Do I need to get a new XBox for that...wait, no, is it a new Guitar Hero"? The correspondent didn't know how to answer him and they both just kind of blew it off.

A. What an idiot
B. This is a reason that Guitar Hero always be a major player because of their brand name recognition with people who are not familiar with the genre. These are the people that buy the Guitar Hero game for their kids because of the name brand.

    A) Why do you watch Fox? They are like the most biased news channel ever and should be shut down by the government or something because they lie about EVERYTHING.

    B) Guitar Hero started it all. Rock Band stole Guitar Hero's idea from them. Rock Band is better and I have it but Rock Band did coppy like everything from Guitar Hero.

    Harmonix created Guitar Hero AND Rock Band. How could they steal their idea from themselves?:confused:

    For the record, Harmonix didn't even come up with the idea; they were failing just like every other rythm gaming developer in America before Red Octane asked them to make a game revolving around the controllers they were making for GuitarFreaks.

    HMX blatantly stole the concepts in GuitarFreaks and then made the game playable, which is why everyone knows it now.

    Amplitude and Frequency are considered failures? Where do these people come from?

    i would say based off idealy. They clearly mention it's based off it because they wanted to bring the idea to America after Konami's version failed. (Link) They even teamed up with konami during the karaoke revolution series. This is where the singing portion idea of rb came from. What Red octane came in they merely took the part that activision does in current gh takes care of.

    Of course they are. They all are. Some are Left and some are Right. Who cares.

    The OP was talking about The Beatles:Rockband. Go troll you politics somewhere else.

    This is like Xbox 360 and PS3. Most of the time, game footage will be shown on 360. In most movies and TV shows they said things like, "Come play my Xbox" or "We have a (Insert 360 exclusive) night"
    Its just a small thing.

    Reading a thread carefully before insulting someone is fun. You should try it sometime.

    Do they not teach the first amendment in school anymore?? Shut down by the Gov't?? Wow this country is in trouble if this is how Americans react to things they disagree with. I have news for you, ALL NEWS CHANNELS ARE BIASED. Think for yourself and never sell out your Bill of Rights/any or your freedom. /political rant

    Wow! Have you been living under a rock for the last 2 years? HMX is the design firm that was behind Guitar Hero. I'll stop here in order to keep the mods from sanctioning me.

    Fox News anchors are not paid to be bright.
