Aerosmith Rocks Retail Shelves Nationwide

Epic Video Game Collaboration
Lets Players Rock Out With America’s Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Band – Aerosmith

Gamers and music fans alike are now
free to unleash their inner-rockstar as the groundbreaking video game
partnership uniting one of 2007’s best selling videogames and ‘America’s
Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band’ –Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom
Hamilton and Joey Kramer– shred store shelves nationwide with Activision,
Inc.’s Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Players can rock out with friends Aerosmith-style
with the limited special edition bundle, including a copy of the game, wireless
guitar with an exclusive Aerosmith faceplate design, and a collector’s 18-page
tour book.

“It’s going to give guitar and music
a boost,” Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said. “And it’s also going to give new
life to all these songs. It may turn a lot of musicians into gamers and gamers
into musicians.”

Steven Tyler says, “What’s better
than to create a game about us and base it around where we’ve played? And how do
a bunch of guys from Yonkers and New Hampshire make it big?”

“Guitar Hero: Aerosmith offers
multiple generations of music fans a unique opportunity to live out their rock
and roll fantasies with one of the greatest bands of all time,” said Dusty
Welch, Head of Publishing for RedOctane. “The intensive motion capture sessions
and countless hours of input from Aerosmith have heightened authenticity and
proven to be invaluable assets in making, not just a great video game, but an
amazing interactive music experience.”

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith brings these
quintessential rock legends to the interactive realm to create the ultimate
gaming experience. As fans progress through their careers in the game, they can
rock out to scores of Aerosmith’s greatest hits including various tracks
re-mastered by the legendary band for Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, as well as songs
from celebrated artists that the band has either performed with or has been
inspired by in some way. Highlighting the list of celebrated artists is an
in-game guest appearance from one of the pioneers of hip-hop and kings of rock,
Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. Venues from historical moments during the band’s
illustrious career offer the experience of “sweet emotion” and further capture
the essence of the band’s rise to fame.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is now
available for the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, Wii and PlayStation 2. The game is
