Viacom-owned Harmonix has sued Konami over Rock Revolution, claiming the game infringes patents related to music game controllers, Bloomberg reports.
The complaint, filed in Boston yesterday, seeks cash compensation and a block on sales of the Konami game.
Konami sued Harmonix and New York-based Viacom in July, claiming Rock Band infringes two of its patents for simulating musical instruments.
More through there.

Blimey. SCEA’s done some power-brokering and, according to this post on the US PS Blog, has got Konami, EA and Activision to agree to let guitars, drums and the like work across each other’s rhythm action games.
Says SCEA’s Michael Shorrock:
For the past several months, we have been working closely with Neversoft and Activision, Harmonix and Konami to ensure that PlayStation 3 guitars and drum sets will all feature a basic level of gameplay compatibility.
For the most part, this means that the titles with musical peripherals will work with the other’s software. A few specific examples include: Guitar Hero: World Tour’s guitars and drums will work with Rock Band 2 and Konami’s Rock Revolution software.
And yes, you guessed it, Rock Band 2’s guitar and drum set will work with Guitar Hero: World Tour and with Rock Revolution.
Conversely, Rock Revolution’s drum set will work with both Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2.
In addition, Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2 will both support the SingStar microphones.
Loads more through there. Good for you, Sony.

Konami’s announced Rock Revolution, a band-based rhythm action game for Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and DS, for release this autumn.
Apparently players are able to work through a variety of classic and modern rock ballads on the drums, guitar, or bass.
Destructoid’s got a good-sized preview of it, include shots. There’s a video after the link.
