Guitar Hero Expansion Answers Aerosmith Enthusiasts' Prayers

I don't know about you guys, but playing with Aerosmith is just something I didn't even dare to dream of. Having them in my living-room would be another thing, but thanks to Guitar Hero, I will be just one of the millions of happy fans that can make both of their dreams become reality.

"Guitar Hero: Aerosmith" is much like Guitar Hero III, but with more of a personal feeling for all those classic rockers out there. They now have the opportunity to be a part of the Aerosmith history, from the Nipmuc High School to the star-studded halftime show at the Big Game.

The game offers an exclusive chance to enter the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, by offering all Guitar Hero and Aerosmith lovers out there the opportunity to fill in Joe Perry's shoes and play alongside Steven Tyler in some of the best concerts the world has ever seen.

But the way this story was on the front page (the first sentence being the only full sentence on that front page), that just sounded plain SICK!

Angrychinchilla5559d ago

I want to pick this up but not for $60. When it's $40, i'll get it. Looking forward to that

pwnsause5559d ago

why couldnt this just be DLC? its stupid and it makes no sense. i hope this stupid trend doesnt continue, cause it fails HARD.

SullyDrake5559d ago

They should of saved it for GHIV, and released 2 or 3 whole Aerosmith albums, like they do on Rock Band.

Now, the upcoming GH Metallica I might get, cuz love 'em or hate 'em, Metallica are first and foremost a guitar band.

And a GH Opeth would actually make me yell "F*CK YES!" out loud.

freakyzeeky5559d ago

I wonder who is actually going to buy this game...

SullyDrake5559d ago

She loves Aerosmith, so this game is for her.

I hate Aerosmith. I coud tolerate the game if it had "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" because I ADORE that song, but they excluded it for some reason.

One of the draws of music games is variety... There's almost always something for everyone. This is why GH Aerosmith fails.

titntin5559d ago

Having played and finished this its a real failure.

Only 31 songs - about 12 of them from other artists. I did enjoy many of the other songs, but the lack of variety being forced to play Aerosmith is a real let down, and the whole experience is far too short, and a little easier than GH3 - I got gold stars and always 5 stars on first play through.

Of course, I actulla yhate Aerosmith, so thats gonna be a big factor here, but ob ly real die hard fans should apply for this one!

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!

Staircase4847d ago

First thing i thought when i read the title.

T9X694847d ago

Yup, IMO Guitar Hero died after 3.

e-p-ayeaH4847d ago (Edited 4847d ago )

Then why it concerns you?

EDIT: I really wanted a Megadeth´s ver.

squallheart4847d ago

lol now theres some good news seeing how all those band specific games didnt fair much


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).........

BeaArthur4909d 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.

Chris3994909d 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."


2Spock4909d 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-pie4909d 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.

raztad4909d 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.

coolcole934909d 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.

Megaton4909d ago

With massive ad campaigns reeling more and more consuming zombies/pop culture retards into the gaming world, you're gonna have more "gamers" who are completely clueless to what's actually going on in the industry. We at N4G are an extreme minority, and even here a lot of people still went out and bought MW2 knowing the things Activision does.

It's hopeless.

erathaol4909d ago

Even if sales begin to falter, as they are already doing because they are driving their major franchises into the ground, Activision will continue to be at the top because of one major reason: Blizzard. Everyone seems to casually just block it out of their minds that the two companies are one and Kotick is President and CEO of the whole thing.

Got to hate how life just likes to bite you in the butt sometimes.

... it seems they can.

You need to get the message across with your wallet!

If you LOVE gaming, and if you HATE the way Activision is doing business: DON'T BUY ACTIVISION GAMES (or buy them used) and certainly DON'T BUY THEIR DLC!

It's THAT simple!

Pika-pie4909d ago

^^ I bought MW2 used for that exact reason
