In a way, that's basically what we just said, except for the fact that I just went the extra mile and went all the way back to "GuitarFreaks" by Konami.
Well he is implying that Rock Band did something unique apart from putting all the instruments together in one game. Konami did all the individual parts long before Harmonix ever became known by the masses. I prefer to give credit to the original company that made the closest thing to the original game rather than who-ever happens to be popular in the moment. Drum Mania was the game I was thinking of by the by. Check out the drums and then look at what GH:WT has planned. Try and say they are ripping off Rock Band after that.
