SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Activision Inc on Friday unveiled a new "Guitar Hero" video game focusing on the rock band Aerosmith, taking the billion-dollar franchise in a new direction.

Called "Guitar Hero: Aerosmith," the new game will arrive in stores this summer, a surprise to many analysts and fans who had expected the next title to come out closer to the year-end holiday shopping season.
Aerosmith, known for hits such as "Dream On" and "Sweet Emotion," is the top-selling American rock band of all time, with sales of 66.5 million albums in the United States alone.


The game will feature about 30 Aerosmith songs as well as others from various acts that have opened for the band. The price has not yet been set.
"The premise is that it's going to cover the 30-plus years of the band, from high school all the way through the rock superstardom of today," Kai Huang, head of Activision's RedOctane unit, which guides development of the franchise, told Reuters in an interview.

When Activision reported quarterly earnings last week, analysts grilled the company on its plans for the franchise, expressing concern that sales would slow this year because many players who bought earlier versions with guitars would opt to buy the lower-price stand-alone game disks.
Huang said Activision had not yet decided whether it would offer a special controller with the Aerosmith game.


NEW DIRECTION
The focus on a single band marks a new twist for the franchise, whose three main titles featured dozens of artists spanning classic rock, grunge, metal, punk and other rock subgenres. Last year, Activision also released "Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s" with songs from that decade.
"It's just a completely new way to interact with this music and with Aerosmith, and we think there's more opportunity to do that in the future," Huang said.
By spotlighting a single band, the company has also come up with a way to counter rival music game "Rock Band" from Viacom Inc unit MTV and Electronic Arts Inc, Activision's top competitor.


To recreate the sense of attending an Aerosmith concert, developers held motion-capture sessions with band members, including energetic frontman Steven Tyler and lead guitarist Joe Perry. "As you play," Huang said, "you're going to be seeing Joe and Steven doing their moves onstage."

The GHIII thread was getting a lot of GHA talk so I figured its time to start a new thread for this title. I'll update as more info is available.

Will pick this up if it ever drops to $20 used and i have a nice big gamestop coupon to go with it. Otherwise, PASS. The free 'dream on' song was so incredibly easy it pissed me off.

anyone else hoping for a bundle with a different guitar design? i wasn't a big fan of the ghiii guitar (it wouldn't rest on my leg well at all). also, buying a bundle would beat buying the game alone plus a separate guitar.

other than that, i'm pumped for more songs...
do or do not, there is no try...

He's a good guitar player, but since this title will almost certainly weigh heavily on more recent Aerosmith songs, I'm going to wait for the bargain bin on this 'un.

This REALLY should have been a Rock Band release. I mean, really. If they are going to give any BAND a game.. why should you only play as a guitar?? This makes me mad.

It also makes me mad that it'll probably be $60. This is $30 at best. Seriously. I AM interested, as I do like Aerosmith, but not for anywhere near the $60 range.

The best thing you can do is vote with your wallet, hombre. No GH game is cheap yet (hell, even the GH/GHII PS2 double disc set is $60 new!) - but if you can hold out for a few months, this one will drop like a...lead zeppelin, I suppose is the proper thing to say.

I think that was a mis-print on their end. There is no way they would develop a game that would work with peripherals that they don't manufacture. The last I knew they were both still pointing fingers at each other over the whole Guitar Compatible thing. Don't get me wrong, I would love it and it would easily justify a purchase of the game then. Maybe they have put their differences aside. No one wants to manufacture expensive peripherals so hopefully they can come up a solution. The money is being made on the software end of these games and DLC. There was speculation that Rock Band might even be selling at a LOSS in the beginning.

Same. I'd give it a go once through. Paying for more songs for replay value only seems worth it in RB now.

Of all the bands out there, why Aerosmith? Are they even relevant anymore? I've never really listened to their music, so are all their songs filled with great guitar riffs or what?

Where is Guitar Hero: Coldplay or maybe The Smiths? ;)

I wonder if they're gonna milk this series dry with all sorts of crazy spinoffs and such. Well, it works for DDR so why not eh?
I'd love to see one where you can import your own songs and make a chart for them, in a legit way. ;)

Once more...

Casual gamer fans will be attracted to this. Plus in 80's Edition I don't think anyone was eager to play Oingo Boingo, Flock of Seagulls amongst others and that was one of Activision's best sellers this past year. Name brand alone it'll sell. Plus basically all consoles so I think they'll do just fine.

Though yeah, easily agree this should've been Rock Band DLC. Walk this way would've been stupid fun, no matter which version they choose.

Yeah, but let's be honest, it wasn't worth $50 like majority of people bought it for. Yet still sold damn well, so I can't help but see GH: Aerosmith doing just as well. Also I'll admit I was giddy as shit while playing metal health, ambulance and holy diver, but my feelings toward the game are more on par with saying not as high a point in the series as the other games.
