    Activision made announcement today that it is working on a new Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game built around the legendary music of America's Greatest Rock 'N Roll Band: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer. Slated for release this June, this latest installment puts players in the shoes of Perry (guitar), Whitford (guitar) and Hamilton (bass), as they rock out alongside frontman Tyler and drummer Kramer. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is being developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 entertainment systems. The Wii version is being developed by Vicarious Visions, while the PlayStation 2 game is being made by Budcat. To mark the announcement, Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock owners will have the opportunity to download Aerosmith's Dream On song for free from February 16-18 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360. "We are extremely excited that Aerosmith chose to team up with Guitar Hero, bringing one of the world's all-time best-selling artists together with one of the biggest video game brands, to deliver a new and unique interactive way for our customers to connect with artists and their music," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing for Activision/RedOctane.

    I've been thinking about getting Guitar Hero here lately. I'm just scared I'll end up playing it 3 hours a day. :laugh:

    I think Red Hot Chili Peppers would be a better guitar hero title. Just my personal opinion...

    No, the chilli peps are good, but lets face it, they are no Aerosmith. I havent played the other two versions, but it seems Legends of Rock are missing alot of good tunes and bands. Not to mention, some of the bands and songs on it suck bad. Tom Morello, I just dont think the Rage Against the Machine Lead Guitarist is all that.

    Chilis? Jesus...they can't play anything but the same old shite over and over again, and when they do something different it's utter shite.

    I've got the 3rd and it's a great game, but like WarEagle said, it does have it's fair share of crap songs.

    And an entire game devoted to Aerosmith? Don't get me wrong, Aerosmith are an absolutely awesome band, but even that's too much. There has to be some variety to keep you going on it.

    Aerosmith...it's all fine and dandy, but I can picture Queen or the Beatles or Pink Floyd being better.

    But that is probably because I love those bands.

    Why Aerosmith? I can think of many bands better suited to this game compared to them.

    Don't count them out. I never knew GH3 was on the PC but it is. They don't spend any time advertising the PC version.

    Either way, one can buy a guitar/amp pack for not much more than what this game costs. It would be much more beneficial than this game.

    Squier and Amp is $150. It has 21 frets and strings. Bang for buck seems better.


    But that is all IMO.
