Mass Gov. Deval Patrick Talks Up Guitar Hero

Democratic Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, is doing everything he can to lure gaming publishers and/or studios to move from their current locations to the Bay State. His excitement of the possible economic boom because of the videogame industry, is starting to ooze out of him. During a town hall meeting in Arlington, the Governor talked a little bit about Guitar Hero.

“This is not your father’s [Route] 128. You know that ‘Guitar Hero’? That was invented here. It was built here.”

Gov. Patrick was speaking about Harmonix who developed the first two Guitar Heros, and they are now the creators of the Rock Band series. We should note that Rt. 128 is known as a technology hub of Massachusetts. While Rt. 128 definitely has its companies along the highway like; Raytheon, Sun Microsystems and Raytheon, Harmonix is nowhere near the route.

Harmonix is located in Cambridge, which is right next to the city of Boston and miles away from Rt. 128.
