EA Rock Band deal 'under discussion'

Viacom evaluating series' future distribution

EA will continue to distribute Rock Band games for the time being - but Viacom has admitted that the deal is "in discussion".

The news comes after EA COO John Scappert said: "We continued to have talks with [Viacom] and hope that maybe there's an opportunity to continue the relationship beyond that."

CFO of MTV owner Viacom, Tom Dooley, added: "As far as Rock Band distribution, EA is continuing to distribute our products, our products notwithstanding the issues in the industry and in the category last year, is still a very strong product.

"We are in discussion to evaluate future distribution relationship, and we'll let you know when that is determined."

No doubt other potential distributors ears have pricked up...
