Activision have confirmed that Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is coming to a multitude of formats this year.
Nice way to whore out Guitar Hero. Keep releasing games based off one band for $100 w/ guitar and you'll make millions and billions in no time. >_>
Dream on coming as a download for gh3?!!! yeah baby i need to buy gh3 asap
I can't think of anything worse than a GH game with only aerosmith music. For me, they represent everything that is wrong with cheesy US rock music, and this will be the first game in the series that I will definately NOT buy.
I sincerley hope this is not the beggining of a trend, and activision starts to remember its the diversity of the music in these titles that makes them fun...
lol @ activision Now that Rock Band is out I'm never buying another GH game unless it has something extremely worthwhile. As long as RB keeps the DLC coming I'm set.
Why don't they just add more music through DLC? If they keep releasing a new GH game every year then how many guitars will GH fans have? This is crazy.
Stupid. That's like Official Manchester United Football Manager. So limited.
didn't Surfer Girl annouce this? Or did I missunderstand something?
Well who would of predicted one of the most popular rock/guitar bands coming to guitar hero?
WOW surfer girl really must be an insider huh...
It wasnt hard to predicted...I predicted it myself
On either Nov,Dec,or Jan's Gamestop video (that constantly rolls through stores) you would of seen that Joe Perry (forget if it said Steven Tyler too) was a guest star at the Guitar Hero 3 Release Night Party thing.
*puts pieces together* yep...obviously it was already a done deal before GH3 came out. If you are a gamestop employee, you should have seen this video 2394872394723 times and would know what im talkin about.
Sorry but these guys are raping us with DLC, £70 for the game then everyweek its a few ££ here and a few ££ there.
Having consoles online now allows developers to take advantage of us. Basically you end up buying things you dont even really want purely because your bored or learnt the selection of songs you currently own.
EDIT: it wouldnt be so bad if they came with an MP3 version of each of the songs so at least you could listen to them at your leisure.
I've yet to download any song for GH3 that wasn't already free. Maybe if they offered a chance to listen to a clip of it before you download or something, I would probably be willing to put some money for a few. I'm not familiar with every song, and I dont' want to have to go to my computer and look the song up for a sample just to decide on if I want it or not.
you could just go onto youtube and watch a video of someone playing it to see if you like it or not
Wow nothing but Aerosmith music. How'd they work that deal out. Did Aerosmith come to them saying "We want to be popular again!"
With all the sales Wii is getting for GH3 I hope they release 1+2 disc so we have that as well.
It seems like this franchise will be going off of name recognition for a bit until Rock Band completely dethrones it. How long can it last I wonder?
I would pick this game up, but I would rather d/l these songs for the GH3 instead.
...building an entire game around 1 band??? C'mon, how many people do you know who are really crazy about "Crazy"?
If they start donig this, they will lose a lot of their base to Rock Band, no question about it.
this game will flop, royally.
"this game will flop, royally."
Whaaaa? you realise this game is out and has sold very well right?
so mighty douche when exactly did guitar hero-aerosmith get released?
I did not say that Guitar Hero would flop. I happen to like Guitar Hero III better than I do Rock Band. I am referring to the "Lets make an entire game center around 1 band that a lot of people like for 1 or 2 of their songs" game that Activision is coming out with. I think it's a HUGE mistake. I happen to like Aerosmith, and I still think it's a HUGE mistake.
But whatever...if it floats your boat.
Wow, really? So we get to pay full price for something which may as well be an expansion pack?
Ugh. They're going to Sims-up to the Guitar Hero franchise. It's going to become even more polluted and, eventually, meaningless.
This sort of thing would work infinitely better with Rock Band. Why? Because Rock Band is about a BAND. What better way to "relive the career" of the band than by actually playing through that career as a BAND rather than just the guitarist/bassist?
Offer this for $10-20 as DLC on Rock Band and you have a license to print money. But as a new Guitar Hero game? No thanks.
Go Aerosmith! Can't wait to play MaMa Kin on Guitar Hero! Day One Purchase for me.
There dozens better bands in the world. Wrong decision. Definitely I will not buy even at bargain price.
If its more than $35-40 (which it will) then f*** that. Its a concept that may work, seeing as the game is called Guitar HERO. I'm not sure that Aerosmith as the first band is a great idea, but thats just me.
Would be a Led Zeppelin one. No other band has their level of variety, and thus, every other one would get old. Fast.
Price to license Aerosmith: Who cares
Price to Buy GH: Aerosmith: To Much
Playing as Aerosmith in Guitar Hero: Worthless
Activision sucks huge monkey nuts for this.
Activision seems to be taking a lesson from EA: milk the franchise for all it has by breaking a big product down and charging more for the sum of the parts. I don't like this. First, I don't like Aerosmith that much. Second, couldn't they just put the songs on the DLC rather than waste the manpower making new graphics and burning discs that are probably not going to sell that well?
to quote AVGN "id rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear" then have to listen to aerosmith. or GnR...
I liked GH because it offered so many types of rock. UGH! I don't see how this is going to do Activision any good. I mean if you're a die hard Aerosmith fan then by all means your prayers have been answered. I would've gone for a AC/DC GH or Led Zepellin. C'mon, Aerosmith? I like the band but not enough to buy a GH game dedicated to them.
