Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) did a little bragging on Guitar Hero at a town hall meeting in Arlington on Monday night.
Patrick, who lobbied game publishers to relocate to Massachusetts during a West Coast junket in February, was enthusiastic about the state's economic prospects during his talk with citizens, according to Wicked Local Arlington:
This is not your father’s [Route] 128. You know that [video game] ‘Guitar Hero’? That was invented here. It was built here.
Route 128 is well-known as a technology corridor in Massachusetts. Guitar Hero creator Harmonix is based in Cambridge.
