Make your way to the Xbox Live Marketplace to grab the musical DLC goods or wait for it to release as Rock Band DLC. Wait a sec ... that probably isn't going to happen. Metallica fans, you'll just have to settle with GHIII.
The discount priced DLC includes content from Beautiful Katamari, Forza 2, Guitar Hero III, Mass Effect and Oblivion with savings ranging from 25-60% off the original prices. That means you can get Mass Effect's Bring Down The Sky DLC for 300 (originally 400), Oblivion's Shivering Isles for 1600 (originally 2400) and GHIII's Foo Fighters Pack for 360 (originally 500).

The RSV2 "Gift Pack DLC" (no longer called the "Fan Pack") includes a set of three re-releases of the multiplayer maps Calypso Casino, Murdertown and CQB Training but now re-lit for a "darker" gaming experience. Today's free GHIII DLC is the July Fourth inspired "Top Gun Anthem" track of which we don't believe Tom Cruise will make an appearance in or would even support. Meh. Go grab your free XBLM downloads, kids, because ... you know ... they're free!

Continuing their downloadable content release frenzy, Guitar Hero III will be releasing another free download this Thursday, July 3rd, just in time to celebrate the Fourth of July.
This Thursday, available as free download off the Xbox Live Marketplace will be the "Top Gun Anthem" as GHIII downloadable content. An iconic 1980's anthem that single handily changed the world. No really, it changed the world! Though, we'll be the first to admit it is a bit repetitive and long, but we can't help but be uber excited to celebrate our Fourth of July festivities with a tribute to our
Update: Readers are telling us that this is actually a custom Guitar Hero II track, but you get the idea of what to expect. Think of it as a dramatic re-enactment of what you'll get! Yeah, sorry for the error.
Acti and Guitar Hero III are pulling another video game promotion card from their marketing deck (shout out to the free Halo theme DLC), with the announcement of a FREE piece of World of Warcraft musical DLC. WoW's viral, underground and cult hit "I Am Murloc" by Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain will be released as GHIII DLC to the XBLM tomorrow, June 26th to celebrate the kickoff of the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational this Friday. But if you're a WoW addict, you probably already knew that. Actually, if you're a WoW addict you probably wouldn't be playing or even own GHIII seeing that your 40 hour gaming week consists of nothing but WoW. Third thought, if you're a WoW addict you probably aren't even reading this blog 'cuz you're busy traveling Azeroth. Humph. Press release after the break.
A reminder for those who, with the aid of Guitar Hero III, were looking forward to jamming out to Coldplay this week, your downloadable content is now available. The GHIII Coldplay Track Pack, featuring the songs "Violet Hill", "Yellow" and "God Put A Smile Upon Your Face", is now ready for your 500 Microsoft point purchase off the XBLM. So, this being a reminder, you can go and get your Coldplay DLC purchase on if you so choose. Also, seeing that this is probably going to be our last post talking about Coldplay, we feel the need to sneak in their Apple iTunes commercial. We thoroughly enjoy the purple and blue smoke that emits from the band as they play ... it's freakin' b-e-a-utiful!
Just as Entertainment Weekly promised, Activision recently sent word that music from Coldplay, including a track from their latest album Viva la Vida, will be making its way to the XBLM as Guitar Hero III downloadable content next Thursday, June 19th. The Coldplay DLC pack will consist of three tracks including their latest single "Violet Hill", their first ever hit "Yellow" and the single "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face". Even though Acti didn't make any mention of pricing, we expect you'll be able to grab this three pack for the standard GHIII DLC going rate of 500 Microsoft points. Official press release posted after the break.
The second of five sets of June's promised Guitar Hero III DLC just released today, bringing with it music from the Isle of Wight to a living room (or den) near you. Available for 500 Microsoft points off the XBLM is the new GHIII Isle of Wight Track Pack featuring the musical tracks "Problems" by The Sex Pistols, "Shoot the Runner" by Kasabian and "I Predict a Riot" by Kaiser Chiefs. And because we loved it so much last time, embedded above is an encore presentation of Kasabian's "Shoot the Runner" video. It's almost like a violent gun filled iPod commercial, no?
