Cross Compatibility for Music Games. Woot.

by Paul

It looks like one of my biggest wishes has come true. The major publishers of music based games, Activision, Neversoft, Harmonix, and Konami, have worked out an agreement with Sony that will guarantee that games will be compatible with the musical peripheral for each game maker. That means that owners of Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero: World Tour, and Rock Revolution will be able to buy one set of pretend instruments on the PS3 and buy all of the games and enjoy them… well except in the case of Rock Revolution. I don’t know how much enjoyment you’re going to get out of that dog.

Don’t worry Xbox 360 owners, you won’t be left in the cold. Microsoft confirmed that they had worked out a similar deal for the 360. Niiiiiice.
