SUNNYVALE, CA – November 8, 2007 – Adding to the legendary set list for Guitar Hero® III : Legends of Rock, Activision, Inc.

Both packs are now available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and will be released on PLAYSTATION®Store later this month.

The Velvet Revolver Track Pack includes master recordings of “Messages,” “She Builds Quick Machines” and the 2004 Grammy Award winner for Best Hard Rock Performance, “Slither.” The Foo Fighters Track Pack includes master recordings of “The Pretender,” “This Is a Call” and the 2002 Grammy Award winner for Best Rock Song, “All My Life.”

Additionally, later in November, the Boss Battle anthems will be available, free of charge. Originally composed music by Slash and Tom Morello along with “The Devil Went Down to Georgia ” can be downloaded to play outside of Career mode.

The game features a star-studded soundtrack including master tracks by legendary artists such as Aerosmith, Guns ‘N’ Roses, The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine and Pearl Jam, as well as original songs by guitar icons Slash and Tom Morello. While continuing to retain all the key features from their prior legendary performances, fresh downloadable content will be available on multiple platforms, and players can now shred to a killer set list from many of the most popular rock songs ever recorded.

A lot of people already know about this, seeing as they went up last night, but I guess the boss battles aren't available yet, so that's news. As is this very cool bit of info:

Wii needs DLC!
I must have that Velvet Revolver pack! DLC was recently announced for the Wii, so here's hoping.

From a business standpoint, two weeks after release is the perfect time to release the first wave of DLCs if you ask me. Certainly a well thought out marketing plan by NS/Activision. Also, if Slither is as fun to play as it sounds on the commercials I've seen, it should generate plenty of downloads from XBL/PSS (is that the correct abbreviation for PlaystationStore?).

It's also great news to hear about the boss battle packages coming for free later in the month. Playing a standalone DWDTG is obviously going to be awesome (assuming it is standalone and not battle), but two more tracks that are pretty much pure guitar solos are awesome too. I mean, I love CoP, CoD, and Impulse, but I'll always welcome more instrumental/guitar solo heavy tracks to the game.

Slither is a damn tricky song. I'm still amazed at all the crazy chord combos in this game.

Very glad to hear the three encores will be free of charge. That was a good move on their part.

Why don't they show the PS2 any love? Give the ghetto-gamers some new music!

making the boss battles free was a great move. there would have been such a public outcry if people had to pay for those songs when they were already in the game. sure they could have made some money by selling the pack, but this was definately the right decision. also, im still fearful of the price for dlc 3 packs since it will prob be the same as gh2 for 360 which i felt was a bit overpriced.

I think this is a great start for Neversoft's DLC strategy. Having the boss battles free may incline more people to be like "hey since I'm not paying for these how bout I buy one of these other packs with it?" It's 2 packs for the price of one....smart move.
