New York Cityâ€™s Hard Rock CafÃ© hosted a press conference today, June 27, with a video sneak peak of â€œGuitar Hero: Aerosmith.â€ The entire band was present for the preview before the game hits shelves on Sunday, June 29, 2008. It will be released for Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 2 and 3.
The game will feature songs from the bandâ€™s repertoire that spans four decades. Initially, players will begin as guitarist Joe Parry and work their way up to guitarist Brad Whitford and bassist Tom Hamilton, as well as more prestigious venues. Steven Tyler spent two weeks in a rubber suit to animate himself for the game to make sure is was â€œall that Aerosmith is.â€ This is the fourth installment of the popular game and the first to feature a specific band. â€œGuitar Hero: World Tourâ€ is also set to release in October of this year and the release date of â€œGuitar Hero: Metallicaâ€ is yet to be announced.http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003822009
