Back to Sony
Well I switched back to Sony. After about a year of debating whether or not to keep my XBox 360 or get a PS3 I decided over the weekend to trade in the 360 for a PS3. I had thought about keeping both but I really don’t need two gaming systems. So far I like it, the graphics are good and the game selection is pretty much the same.

Gibson vs. Guitar Hero!?
Well I'm confused. It looks like Gibson is suing Activision for patent infringement in their Guitar Hero series. To be brief Gibson guitars are the licensed guitars in the game, they always have been since the first game. The suit revolves around simulating a musical performance using an instrument. Last time I used a Guitar Hero controller it was just that, a controller. I can't recall being able to actually make music with the "instrument" only push buttons in time with the discs. With friends ......
