SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bruce Springsteen will make his videogame debut on January 27, 2009, with two downloadable songs available exclusively in Activision Publishing, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI - News) Guitar Hero® World Tour.

Coinciding with the release of his new album, Working on a Dream (Columbia Records), the two-song Track Pack will be available for download simultaneously with the album's release on January 27, 2009. The Track Pack, which features the iconic Springsteen song "Born to Run" and "My Lucky Day," a brand-new track off his new album, Working on a Dream, will be free to download during the first week of the album's release.

"Bruce Springsteen has been a defining force in Rock 'n Roll and we are incredibly excited to have him make his video game debut with Guitar Hero World Tour," said Robert Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard.

Springsteen's longtime manager Jon Landau said, "Activision has been a leader in getting music to the public in new ways and we are very happy to have them making these two songs available to their audience."

The Bruce Springsteen Track Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Store for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and as singles for Wii(TM) for free between January 27, 2009, and February 4, 2009.

edit: OH! Way to half-read, Smike. Okay, free for a week, gotcha. Well, I agree then, free is free, and free can't be bad. ;) Doesn't mean it's good, but it can't be bad either! I just saw a pricetag and assumed the original stuff about it being free wasn't true. Whoops. Definitely need sleep.

Free Bruce? Now that's just awesome!

(On a side note, I was beginning to have severe withdrawal symptoms from the scorehero news drought lately... I probably shouldn't be checking the front page every 15 minutes )

Wait, three three songs? I thought it was only going to be two.

Oh hell yes, Neversoft. That's 7 free songs already, soon to be 10, soon to be 15.

Wheeeeee.

Those 5 free songs they gave away with Guitar Bundles.

But yeah, it's only two songs dude. Still, pretty cool that they are giving Born to Run away for free. I'd pay money for it.
