Activision’s merger with, well…almost everyone seems to have made them really, really competetive. For weeks and weeks now we have heard about Guitar Hero getting so and so exclusive and stuff like that and to be honest I couldn’t stand it. All of their exclusive artists seem really cool and often i’m left thinking “that would be cool if it was in Rock Band”. I hate exclusives in music games, it’d be like iTunes getting the new [insert popular recording artist] album and no one else being able to buy it. Think about it, it would suck. This is something shared by Harmonix’s Eric Brosious who said this in an interview with IGN.

We prefer not to sign exclusive deals with artists because while it seems like the competitive “business” thing to do, in the long run, it’s really not good for anyone. We think we should be working to get more music out to more people.

That’s what i’d like to see, more honesty within the games industry. Good on ya mate!
