Guitar Hero Snags Aerosmith Exclusivity

If you're looking forward to Guitar Hero: Aerosmith in late June, you're probably a fan of the legendary band and a fan of music-based video games. You probably enjoy Rock Band as well as Activision's franchise. However, if you want your Aerosmith fix, it seems you're gonna have to stick with Guitar Hero.

Only one song, "Train Kept a Rollin'," is available for Rock Band, but any Aerosmith tracks in the future will be exclusive to Guitar Hero titles. Evidently, Newsweek received confirmation from an Aerosmith publicist and Activision PR that the band's songs are cemented firmly in the GH realm "for an unspecified period of time." This only makes sense, as the band has a Guitar Hero game with their name in the title. Of course, this erases the possibility of future Aerosmith songs going up as downloadable content for Rock Band, and it begs the question: will other artists go exclusive with either GH or RB? Are the publishers scrambling about right now, trying to nail down exclusive rights? We're not sure, but we imagine the war has already begun...

Look for more on Guitar Hero: Aerosmith as time goes on; probably after the Grand Theft Auto IV craze has had a chance to die down a bit.

Hmmm...I wonder if PS3 could still get the Run-DMC version of "Walk This Way". That would be cool.

Sucks though. There are quite a few Aerosmith songs that I like. But, as I'm not a die-hard fan, and there are thousands of other bands in the world, I won't lose sleep over it.
