Plagiarism[edit]

Most of the following was simply stolen from the "about us" page at the official Harmonix website. I've moved it here for reference. (The page it was taken from: [1])

Was it cited? If so it's fine. Doshindude (talk) 22:56, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

public or private?[edit]

How is Harmonix a private company when they are owned by a public company? I'm not a business expert... Tehw1k1 03:02, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

moved?[edit]

I have friends working at Harmonix and they just moved their offices across the street to the space upstairs on the East corner of Prospect & Mass Ave. Not sure if the whole company moved or what, perhaps there's a press release or something somewhere? Slugabed 14:10, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Brian Gibson[edit]

Is Brian Gibson of Harmonix and Megasus the same Brian Gibson that's in Lightning Bolt? The Megasus article says that he is, but when I edited the Harmonix article to reflect that, it was reverted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.236.240.18 (talk) 05:16, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, he is. Dfan 21:40, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

FAQ: Guitar Hero name[edit]

Many readers may be visiting wondering why Harmonix is no longer developing games with the Guitar Hero name. The Activision/MTV purchases of RedOctane/Harmonix (i.e. the franchise went to Activision while the talent went to MTV) should be clarified on this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by IQpierce (talkcontribs) 16:58, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Konami Suing Harmonix[edit]

Don't have a lot of time to explain it all: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601101&sid=aHQODoKwFYrA&refer=japan Teancum (talk) 16:40, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

That shouldn't have to happen. Rock Revolution and Rock Band are not even related in Gameplay. Rock Revolution has mostly cover versions of the songs and they sound nothing like the real versions of the songs that Rock Band uses. I watched a youtube video of System of a Down's Chop Suey song on both Rock Band 2 and the one on Rock Revolution. The one on Rock Revolution sounds nothing like the one on Rock Band 2. Therefore, Rock Band uses the real versions, I think a few are cover. They aren't the same names either, just 1 common word ROCK. So in my opinion Konami shouldn't have to sue Harmonix at all. But since it is happening, Harmonix should counter it out so they don't have to pay the millions that Harmonix paid to make Rock Band. Guitar Hero 4 or (World Tour) is doing the same thing as well with a band mode as well. This is as far as I can take it until someone repliesKagemaru the Ninja of the Shadows (talk) 18:25, 19 October 2008 (UTC)--Kagemaru the Ninja of the Shadows (talk) 18:25, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

The Gert Jonnys[edit]

Really? Members of Harmonix are members of an internet meme Swedish dansband from the 60's? Can we get some verification on that? --Smacksaw (talk) 14:46, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

This may be really minor, but shouldn't the Guitar Hero info box be collapsed while either the Rock Band (since it's their main franchise) or Harmonix games infobox be uncollapsed? Not really sure if I should just change it or not, so I brought it up here (not sure if there's a proper protocol to it). I guess if no one objects I'll change it in a few days, if I'm in the wrong just change it back. KearF (talk) 03:21, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Kasson Crooker and Freezepop[edit]

Kasson Crooker Is a employee of Harmonix and his former band Freezepop Is included in many Harmonix games, developed while he was a member. I feel the band should be listed, but i am unsure how. Should it be "Kasson Crooker, Freezepop (Formerly)" or is convoluted enough to not list it?
