World Renowned Recording Group Aerosmith Rocks This Way to Guitar Hero(R): Aerosmith(R)

Epic Collaboration Creates First Music-Based Game to Feature One
Band

Free Download of ''Dream On'' Offered to Commemorate Alliance

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb 15, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fire up the fret board, crank the amp to 11 and get ready to rock this way with Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq:ATVI) Guitar Hero(R): Aerosmith(R), the first game built around the legendary music of America's Greatest Rock 'N Roll Band: Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer. Slated for release this June, this latest installment from the franchise with the #1 best-selling video game in 2007, puts players in the shoes of Perry (guitar), Whitford (guitar) and Hamilton (bass), as they rock out alongside frontman Tyler and drummer Kramer. Gamers will experience Aerosmith's GRAMMY(R) winning career, from their first gig to becoming rock royalty, in a way that no other entertainment vehicle offers.

To celebrate this historic, ground-breaking collaboration, Guitar Hero(R) III: Legends of Rock fans will have the opportunity to download and jam to Aerosmith's "Dream On." The song will be available for free from February 16-18 on Xbox LIVE(R) Marketplace for the Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION(R)Store for the PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system. For more information, please visit www.guitarhero.com.

"Having a game built around Aerosmith has been a huge honor and really a great experience for us," says Joe Perry. "We've put a lot of ideas into the game so that fans can have fun interacting with our music, getting inside our body of work and learning about the band's history."

Steven Tyler says, "Any band that can go from 'Don't Want to Miss A Thing' (Aerosmith's #1 smash hit) to the ass-kicking 'Sweet Emotion' to the cheekiness of 'Love in an Elevator,' to the classic ballad 'Dream On' shows why Activision chose us to headline this game based on the diversity of the Aerosmith catalog. Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies."

Perry adds, "On a larger scale, it's cool for us to be pioneers helping to rebuild the music industry through a format like video games. It's great for rock since the record companies are struggling to make sense of how things are changing. Fans want to get and experience music in new formats--and there are going to be some of them who will play the game, then pick up the guitar for real and start bands. It's what's happening now, and it's only going to build more momentum in the future. It's a massive change for the music business."

"We are extremely excited that Aerosmith chose to team up with Guitar Hero, bringing one of the world's all-time best-selling artists together with one of the biggest video game brands, to deliver a new and unique interactive way for our customers to connect with artists and their music," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing for Activision/RedOctane. "This partnership will give Aerosmith, a band that has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, a powerful and innovative platform to reach their fans and new audiences."

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, as well as songs from celebrated artists that the band has either performed with or has been inspired by in some way. 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 being developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system. The Wii(TM) version is being developed by Vicarious Visions. The PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system version is being developed by Budcat. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB.

About Aerosmith

For more than 30 years AEROSMITH has defined American Rock 'n' Roll. Just a brief overview of their remarkable career is truly mind-boggling: over 150 million albums sold, induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, countless awards (four GRAMMY Awards, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards, and 12 MTV Awards), electrifying sold-out concerts around the world and a diehard "Blue Army" fan-base numbering in the millions worldwide. Described by Mojo editor Phil Alexander in a May '07 cover story as "America's greatest hard rock act," the members of AEROSMITH--STEVEN TYLER (vocals), JOE PERRY (guitar), BRAD WHITFORD (guitar), TOM HAMILTON (bass) and JOEY KRAMER (drums)--remain creatively vital, and are the platinum standard for artistic and commercial success in the music business. Through it all they have defeated the odds, silenced their critics and have undeniably withstood the test of time. AEROSMITH are beginning to work on their next studio album, the follow-up to 2004's critically acclaimed HONKIN ON BOBO, which received a four-star Rolling Stone review.

This is really cool news!

Who doesn't like Aerosmith?

I just wish I had more desire to play GH >> RB is hoarding my time. But, this IS a must purchase for anyone who loves GH and/or loves Aerosmith.

I hope this takes off and bands realize the success this can bring them.

Me. Not the only reason I don't think it's a good idea mind.

same here. If this is GH4... no. It can't be.

Amplitude 3 sounds like a better idea at this point (bcuz Amplitude kicked ass and you know it!!)

It scares the heck out of me that this press release mentions I Don't Want To Miss A Thing. I'd rather play Yes We Can 10 times in a row than having to play that song even once. I'm not saying "OMG this song sucks keep it out of the game" because there's obviously a lot of people who like it, but for me, this would be disastrous. I'd absolutely have to use the mute button or else my toenails would fall of in disgust.


Now that I got that out of the way... my opinion on this is "depends". Depends on the Aerosmith songs that are actually in there (hint: Rats in the Cellar / Toys in the Attic"), and how many bands "inspired" Aerosmith.


And then, finally... Dream On as free DLC is EPIC WIN. I'm at home during the weekend and I know that I have two days to download this, but I'm still scared to miss it. That song rocks.


EDIT: This is set to be released in June, and GH IV is already semi-confirmed for November, so no, this is NOT GH IV. Even if it were, we'd just get GH V in November.
