Rumor: Guitar Hero: Aerosmith to Use Drum and Mic Peripherals

Joystiq Writes-
While you might think a game titled Guitar Hero: Aerosmith would have you playing, you know, guitars, a Best Buy advertisement for the latest mistake chapter in the rhythm game franchise claims you'll be able to play as all of the "famous rock legends" in "America's greatest rock and roll band" -- including the drummer, Joey Kramer, and band's own lady-lookin'-dude, Steven Tyler, using a drum peripheral and microphone peripheral

damn sounding like a little rockband game but still could pull it off

Mr_Kuwabara5696d ago

I just hope that if this is true, that they don't dumb down the guitar notes like Rockband's.

xplosneer5695d ago

RockBand is fun on guitar overall, but nowhere near as challenging as Guitar Hero. Still though, GGAHT is killer in single player mode!!

Activision copying Rock Band, much?

Just like Guitar Hero III, Neversoft and Activision will turn the Rock Band idea into a piece of sh*t too. Just watch, they'll make it bad enough with a bundle that costs $200 and hope it'll sell like hot cakes because of the brand name. And they'll make the timing window so wide you could play perfectly on Expert---even if you had no arms!

I'll stick with Rock Band---the Original Rock Band game---thank you.

pwnmaster30005696d ago

they should put something like drums, piano and vocal and maybe bass.... yeah bass to

akaFullMetal5695d ago

well where else is activision going to go, rockband has evolved the guitar hero phase, so all they can do now is copy or some how even evolve the genre, which i doubt they will, so they will copy.

Matsuiichi5695d ago

I'm not saying it isn't necessary, and I totally agree with you! It's just that it's stupid that pretty much their entry into the rhythm genre is piggybacking off of Harmonix's success, while copying their Rock Band idea.

I understand why they're copying, but I still think it's really stupid. :P

No band-specific Guitar Hero games this year

Neversoft's Brian Bright has told GamerZines that Activision has no plans to launch any band-specific Guitar Hero games this year, telling us that "this year they (Activision) really wanted to just focus on two games," presumably the recently announced Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock and DJ Hero 2.

How about no Guitar Hero games at all this year!

Staircase4845d ago

First thing i thought when i read the title.

T9X694845d ago

Yup, IMO Guitar Hero died after 3.

e-p-ayeaH4845d ago (Edited 4845d ago )

EDIT: I really wanted a Megadeth´s ver.

squallheart4845d ago

Activision Can't Keep Screwing People Over and Stay Number One

Craig Hasselback writes: "Activision just continues finding new ways to go from the popular publisher that stayed the course and rose to number one, to being the big jerk that is too big for their own britches as my grandpa would say. Since becoming the number publisher, Activision has done everything possible to piss off gamers."

Well sadly, until the average gamer realizes that they are getting screwed over, Activision is going to be number 1 for a while(as much as I hate to say it).........

BeaArthur4907d ago

Well since the population of sites like this only make up less than 1% of the fan base they will probably be on top for awhile. We can see what Activision is doing but those 2.5 million that just bought the new MW2 map pack have no idea.

Chris3994907d ago

A consumer's only power is with his/ her wallet. Until people start speaking with that, there will be no change. And as Bea pointed out, we're in the minority here, us informed enthusiasts.

The average consumer is entirely unaware of the conflict going on at ActiBlizz and the fragmenting of Infinity Ward. Nor do they care. I guarantee that come fall of this year (about time for another MW release, no?) they'll be standing at their local Walmart waiting to pick up a copy of MW.

"Like pigs to the trough, people gobble up each new COD release."


2Spock4907d ago

Well there are rumor's of activision holding your family hostage if you don't buy their games. Ohhh crap speaking of which i need to go buy "How to train your dragon" on all platforms....hope it's not to late.

Pika-pie4907d ago

They can only be number one for so long without giving us new and original franchises. They can only milk things for so long.

Music games are on the down
Tony hawk ride was a massive flop
WoW wont last forever
COD is all they have. Seen as how MW3 wont be made by infinity then it wont be as successfull.

raztad4907d ago


General consumer is not aware of developers, publishers or those details. Dont expect COD to go down because IW demise, and it makes sense, why people should be concerned with game industry inner politics? fans take things to heart but random Joe doesnt care.

coolcole934907d ago

Perhaps we should make some positive PSN chain spam.

Make one about how Activision are ripping you off and to send it to everyone on your friends list.
