Guitar Hero Aerosmith demo walks this way

Considering it came out in June, it's a little curious that Activision is only now releasing a demo of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith to Xbox Live Marketplace. Somehow, we get the feeling that pretty much anyone interested in Guitar Hero: Aerosmith already has it. If, somehow, you're interested in this game and have yet to try it out, go give it try. Oh, one last thing, the dashboard details are priceless: "Get a taste of Guitar Hero®: Aerosmith - There's never been a band like them; there has never been a game like this." Really? Never?

The Guitar Hero / Rock Band guitar matrix v2.0!

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith recently released and we have Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band 2 to look forward to later this year, meaning we're getting a bunch of brand new guitar peripherals. Take into account the older guitars from Guitar Hero II and III as well as the original Rock Band and you're left with a confusing instrument compatibility mess. Our head hurts just thinking about it. But team Joystiq has done their best to make sure you understand which guitar peripherals work with which games, breaking down the information into a convenient Guitar Hero / Rock Band guitar compatibility matrix (version 2.0). Make the jump to view the complete matrix of guitar compatibility and be in complete peripheral compatibility awe and, possibly, complete compatibility disgust.

Deals: $10 gift cards and Assassins for the cheap

This week at Circuit City, you can grab a few gift cards with your new video game purchases. Purchase either Unreal Tournament III or Beijing Olympics 2008 and get a free $10 gift card. If you're looking for new Xbox 360 Arcade hardware and are willing to purchase LEGO Indiana Jones as well, you'll be treated to a free $20 gift card. Their other deals include a free art poster with Civilization: Revolution and Assassin's Creed for the super low price of $30. Outside of Circuit City the deals are slim, but Best Buy is giving away a free eighteen month calendar with a SoulCalibur IV pre-order and Toys R Us is giving away a free $10 gift card with the purchase of a Guitar Hero: Aerosmith bundle or just the game (in store only). Now go fanboys, go and get your shop on.

Photos of a losing Guitar Hero: Aerosmith racecar

A few weeks back, we mentioned that a Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (and Target) sponsored racecar would be tearing up the NASCAR track. Well, that race went down this past weekend where the GH:Aerosmith car finished in a very sad 38th place. Bummer. But thanks to loyal fanboy SToNeP2277 who attended the racing festivities, we received a few pictures of not only the racecar prior to its losing finish, but also the promotional trailer and RV they had setup on the race grounds. Check out all the NASCAR pictures below and be sure to note the very glam red rope they had setup.

Shipping this week: Guitar Hero: Latest Iteration edition

While there are technically two games coming out this week, there's really only one. You see, one of them is the Gears of War re-release (which we thought came out last week). That's all well and good for the folks who have yet to pick up Epic's super gory and very playable shooter. Just remember to watch out for that host shotty. Strangely enough, the new game releasing this week isn't all that new either. It's Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, which is, you guessed it, Guitar Hero with a lot of Aerosmith tracks. Whether or not you regard that as a good thing is entirely up to you. One point in defense of Aerosmith: they did give us Alicia Silverstone.

Weekly deals: Free goodies with GH:Aerosmith

It's Sunday, it's time for a weekly deals roundup, so let's get to it.

This week, Best Buy has GRID on sale for $50, is giving away free movie cash with the purchase of Hellboy II or Wall-E and is giving out a free copy of the Aerosmith: Greatest Hits album with the purchase of ANY Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game or bundle. Circuit City has 4000 MS point cards for $45, LEGO Indiana Jones for $43, GTAIV for $55 and are giving away a free guitar strap with any Guitar Hero: Aerosmith purchase. Finally, just like Best Buy, Target is handing out a free copy of Aerosmith: Greatest Hits CD with any Guitar Hero: Aerosmith purchase. As always, feel free to share any deals or discounts you have to share in the comments below.

Complete Guitar Hero: Aerosmith track list revealed

With its release date quickly approaching, we've been in the dark regarding Guitar Hero: Aerosmith's complete track list. That is until this morning when we were graced with the complete track listing thanks to Eurogamer and my oh my is there a lot of Aerosmith. Though, that was expected. You can browse all the musical goodness after the break where we've listed all the songs in their appropriate tiers including the bonus tracks.

We have one giant complaint though, what happened to Deep Purple and The White Stripes? They were both previously confirmed way back when for inclusion in GH:Aerosmith. And, darnit, we want our promised The White Stripes! We're willing to trade in one of the 872 Aerosmith songs for our Stripes, get rid of "Nobody's Fault" or "Draw the Line", we don't care. Anything to get a track from The White Stripes ... humph!

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith goes fast, goes NASCAR

In an effort to appeal to the manly sports-minded crowd, Activision and Target have teamed up to sponsor Dario Franchitti's NASCAR Dodge and plaster it with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith prettiness. Just look at it above, isn't she pretty? Dario will drive the Guitar Hero themed racecar during the NASCAR Sprint Cup's New Hampshire Motor Speedway race on Sunday, June 29th. Hopefully Franchitti doesn't wreck his prettified car on Sunday, because we know Steven Tyler would NOT approve of damage done to anything sporting the Aerosmith name.

Joystiq plays Guitar Hero: Aerosmith

Joystiq managed to wrap their hands around a guitar and try out Guitar Hero: Aerosmith before its official release next month. The verdict: it's a lot like Guitar Hero III with a helluva lot more Aerosmith. There are new venues, some new characters, and other minor changes, but overall it's the same game (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). Head over to Joystiq to read their impressions and sneak a peak at GH: Aerosmith's track list.

Rock out with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Slurpees

Nothing screams rock God like a 7-11 Slurpee, so that must be why Activision, Microsoft and 7-11 have partnered to offer up Guitar Hero themed Slurpee cups at 7-11 stores nationwide to help promote the upcoming release of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. And know that the promotion isn't just so fans can collect GH cups, you can also win all kinds of Guitar Hero goodies, games, and Xbox 360 hardware with online entry codes that are available on each Slurpee cup.

So, go ahead and drink sweet Slurpee deliciousness until brain freeze takes over, because you have a long way to go to catch up to to Steven Tyler's eighteen Slurpee a day consumption. Though, it really isn't fair, his body's liquid intake device is unusually large.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith - 9 new hero shots

Guitar Hero isn't without its share of strange-looking character models and Activision has just dropped nine new screens of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith proving it yet again.

These new shots showcase the world famous title band Aerosmith along with popular in game guitar rocker Judy Nails. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith hits the Xbox 360 on this June.

Video: This is how Aerosmith rocks the guitar

There's a brand new Guitar Hero Aerosmith "Rock Out Trailer" that recently released which aims at pulling you back into the Guitar Hero world. Which it does, because GHAero's look really hasn't changed all that much from GHIII, except for the addition of real-time ribbon physics that have been added for Steven Tyler's microphone stand. And we don't know if it's just us or not, but don't you think the cartoon version of Steven Tyler is a bit on the manorexic side? We can count his ribs ... just saying.

Aerosmith exclusive to Guitar Hero, Rock Band DLC denied

Rock Band fanboys who never plan on ever going back to the Guitar Hero days yet fully support Steven Tyler and his band will be shedding a tear today. Shedding a tear because it was just revealed that Aerosmith struck a deal with the Guitar Hero franchise allowing them exclusive use of their music, meaning no Aero love for Harmonix or Rock Band. Which isn't all that surprising seeing that Activision has been treating Aerosmith like royalty lately, with plans of releasing a special Guitar Hero: Aerosmith edition later this June and licensing their likeness, names and music. All said, Rock Band owners can still experience a bit of Aerosmith with the game's "Train Kept A Rollin" track which was licensed prior to the band's agreement with Activision. It'll be the only Aerosmith Rock Band sees for a long, long while.

GH: Aerosmith: Same old Les Paul, new faceplate

Activision recently sent word about Guitar Hero: Aerosmith's bundle offer and for everyone who was hoping for a brand new wireless guitar peripheral, we have the enjoyably-twisted honor of crushing your fragile guitar dreams. How it's laid out, with any $99 Guitar Hero: Aerosmith bundle purchase you'll receive the game, a special Aerosmith tour book and a wireless Gibson Les Paul guitar controller as was bundled with GHIII. But with a special red Aerosmith faceplate. No new guitar technology, just a new faceplate. We aren't sure if we're supposed to feel cheated or angry at ourselves for expecting something entirely new. Humph to it all.

Guitar Hero Aerosmith trailer 'Same Old Song and Dance' but is still 'Amazing'

As everyone knows, Activision's first foray into the band-dedicated Guitar Hero releases kicks off with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith this summer. While we've joked about the title in the past we're excited to see how the final product will hit with fans of the billion-dollar franchise. One interesting note from the video is the text that follows the introduction of legendary rockers. After gazing upon the awesome interestingly animated faces of the band, the trailer introduces the gamer as "and you." This disappointingly points at the inability to play as Joe Perry, Brad Whitford or Tom Hamilton. But we'll wait and see. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is set to rock on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii this June.
