Gibson files suit against Activision for patent infringement in Guitar Hero

Since Guitar Hero made its debut back in 2005 (has it really been that long?) we've been rocking out with various Gibson controllers. I never really cared for the the X-plorer, but that's not the point here. Apparently Gibson has just realized that the Guitar Hero game infringe on one of their patents.

Gibson requests that Activision obtain a license under Gibson's ... patent or halt sales of any version of the 'Guitar Hero' game software.

Two new DLC packs coming to Guitar Hero III

Two new DLC packs coming to Guitar Hero III

It's not that GH III isn't a good game (it is, really) it's just that after playing the same songs over and over, you kind of want something new to play.

By that, of course I mean putting in your own music and creating charts for it. While Harmonix has expressed an interest in integrating such a feature in Rock Band down the road, we really haven't heard Activision's stance, at least not until now.

Activision takes 3-4 weeks to get you a new Guitar Hero III disc for your Wii

Activision takes 3-4 weeks to get you a new Guitar Hero III disc for your Wii

When you're playing a game like Guitar Hero, one of the most important features is the sound. If the audio sucks coming out, it will interfere with your gameplay, as it is centered solely around making music.  Well when Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock came out for the Wii, people noticed that it only played sound in mono, which really sucks. Finally Activision has setup a replacement program so that you can get a new disc that has stereo sound.
