Nov 11th 2010 9:27AM @km3k Viacom owns MTV, thus the "MTV Games" label attached to Rock Band. EA is the distributor through the EA Partners program, all they really do is deal with the boxes that get shipped out to stores, etc.
Viacom owns Rock Band. If they sell Harmonix, they're probably keeping the Rock Band IP for themselves.

sea of interactive games. We feel very lucky to have Mike Bilder at the
helm. And by 'helm' I actually mean 'desk.' We're not really on a ship --
just a regular company... in a building and everything."
I forgot how much I fucking love Jellyvision.
Jun 10th 2008 4:21AM Usually EB or Best Buy, depending on what's closer or if I'm at home or on campus.
For PC, I insist on buying games through Steam.
Apr 29th 2008 4:53AM You *are* aware there's a Best Buy in Braintree...right? No way in hell would I risk my life on the J-way at 1 AM
Feb 4th 2008 2:33AM The UI is in the hands of the handset manufacturer. Android is modular, and the only required parts are the kernel, a few core services, and the runtime. Google will provide some basic apps (like a contact list and home screen), but manufacturers can choose whether to use them, modify them, or implement their own.
Jan 23rd 2007 4:09AM Er, this just means they're implementing 2.0.6, which fixed a few small bugs and well...um...*class* balancing issues. It's been on the PTRs for a while, and only makes sense that they make it live.
Jan 17th 2007 4:30AM "Blizzard is very tricky with their advertising. It is not 8M subscribers, but 8M copies sold. There is a huge difference there."
No, it's 8M active subscribers. From Blizzard:
World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees' territories are defined along the same rules.
You gotta admit, 8 Million is a hell of a feat.
Jan 16th 2007 2:31PM I didn't sleep. At any minute UPS will arrive, and I must be there to sign...I....must....sign...no...sleep...
