Harmonix not happy with music games exclusivity fights

In a chat with IGN, Harmonix audio director Eric Brosious has said he is not too happy to have to continually fight with the Guitar Hero franchise to try and secure exclusives for Rock Band. He admits he’d much rather try and get as much music available to download as possible instead of have to put together various deals with companies.

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,” he comments. “We think we should be working to get more music out to more people.

The interview then goes on to talk about better balancing amongst songs in Rock Band 2, and other kinds of DLC. Definitely worth a read if you like to rock!
