Activision announced new Aerosmithy content for Guitar Hero III, a game that already features the likeness of the fish-mouthed Steven Tyler as your avatar. But now there's a whole new expansion pack centered around Aerosmith songs. To celebrate, I shall repeatedly play "Train Kept A-Rolling" in Rock Band. Oh, wait, no I won't, since I hate that song. Here's the announcement:
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb 15, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fire up the fret board, crank the amp to 11 and get ready to rock this way with Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq:ATVI) Guitar Hero(R): Aerosmith(R), the first 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 from the franchise with the #1 best-selling video game in 2007, puts players in the shoes of Perry (guitar), Whitford (guitar) and Hamilton (bass), as they rock out alongside frontman Tyler and drummer Kramer. Gamers will experience Aerosmith's GRAMMY(R) winning career, from their first gig to becoming rock royalty, in a way that no other entertainment vehicle offers.
To encourage folks like me to warm up Aerosmith, they'll offer "Dream On" as a free download. Which is quite enough Aerosmith for me, thank you very much.
