The fact that Guitar Hero will be getting an all Aerosmith edition is in no way new news to any of us I'm sure but you might be interested to know what this means for the bands tracks and other games like Rock Band.
Newsweek.com has the full details on it and by there info it looks like Guitar Hero has locked in all the Aerosmith tracks that have not already been released to Rock Band, so if your an Aerosmith fan with Rock Band only you might want to start saving up now.
Newsweek reports: "we persevered, and with an assist from NEWSWEEK business reporter Ashley Harris, we've learned that Aerosmith is indeed exclusive to Guitar Hero for an unspecified period of time. "It's an exclusive deal for this game," Aerosmith publicist Marcee Rondon told Harris. We confirmed this with Tim Riley, Activision's vice president of music affairs, who told us through Activision PR that "I can say that we do have the band exclusively, and their catalog should be exclusive to us beyond the one or two tracks they had licensed out to Rock Band before we made our deal." (According to MTV's Rhythm Game Track Finder, it's one song: "Train Kept a Rollin'.")
Sorry Rock Band but it would seem that Guitar Hero has secured a monster this time and with Aerosmiths fan base I'm sure it will be reflected in sales when this title hits.
Joe Perry had this to say about the game: "It's got our whole career, from the first place we ever played as a band, Nipmuc High School (in 1970, about 40 miles from Boston) to the (2001) Super Bowl halftime show," says lead singer Steven Tyler. "It's 30 years of the legend of Aerosmith and where we played to get where we are."
"It's a cartoon, but it's got all my movements and Steven's movements," Perry says. "You can tell it's Joey (Kramer) playing the drums."
Sounds like this could turn out to be a big hit and lets hope the songs will be open for down load for Guitar Hero III soon after the Guitar Hero: Aerosmith version releases.
Guitar Hero III owners will be able download Aerosmith’s “Dream On” for free between February 16-18 for both PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
The release date for the game has not been set but we will keep you posted.
Steven Tyler had this to say, “Any band that can go from ‘Don’t Want to Miss A Thing’ to the ass-kicking ‘Sweet Emotion’ to the cheekiness of ‘Love in an Elevator,’ to the classic ballad ‘Dream On’ shows why Activision chose us to headline this game based on the diversity of the Aerosmith catalog. Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies.”
I think we all knew that if a one band version ever hit, it wold be Aerosmith heading the show.
