Once again: Konami, you suck.

This is why I refuse to play any Konami games. They can't learn to grow the hell up.

part 3?

it's part 5, 6 or something

Andamiro - PIU
Roxor Games - ITG
Mad Catz (?) - Mc Groovz Dance Craze
Harmonix - Guitar Hero
Amuseworld - EZ2DJ
Harmonix again - Rock Band
Pentavision - DJMax

Plus, DDR X has been released and DDR fans are quite disappointed at it.

I had a feeling this could happen with the DJMT/Jubeat issue, but I felt I was exaggerating.

Guitar Hero and Rock Band did succesfully render GF&DM obsolete... and now I'm REALLY hoping that DJ Hero and that other hip hop DJ game do the same with IIDX.

Plus, I don't think Konami would have enough lifetime to sue the avalanche of US rhythm games that GH's popularity is provoking

you know that's definately not going to happen. IIDX has too far of an international fanbase to have those other two american clones bring down IIDX.

I'm really getting sick of this. Don't they realize how shamelessly pathetic they look?

Going after Roxor I could see.

Going after Harmonix for releasing in Japan I could see.

This... what? Konami has a Korean division?

Oh goody, another reason for me to add to my list of WHY I will NEVER buy anymore Konami games (besides the fact that their games are quite mediocre.)

First, they've killed In The Groove and pissed off ITG's fanbase, and to add insult on that injury, released TERRIBLE DDR games after successfully obtaining rights to ITG.

Now that Pentavision is doing real well on the PSP, Konami decides that it's time to fuck them over.

Well Konami, you still haven't changed my mind about you. I'm still disappointed in your games, and I'm even more upset that your industry has to resort to litigious actions such as this just because you're getting butthurt. Well guess what, IT'S CALLED COMPETITION! If your game isn't doing so well, it's probably because your game is BORING AS HELL! If someone else's game is doing better than yours, well...


Konami, drop this fucking lawsuit, and go back to fixing and improving your games. That's what you guys need to be focusing on. Seriously, even your fanbase is sorely disappointed in DDR-X, and this time, you can't blame RoXoR for that!

And one more thing, you can't blame Pentavision for beating you to the PSP first.
