One of the most influential bands in history isnt on Rock Band? They practically define the term "Rock Band". Plus I think a lot of there songs would be fun to play. Just imagine playing that great riff from Sweet Emotion or trying to sing Back in The Saddle. I dont know why there cooperating with Activision and making a Guitar Hero. They would do better being in Rock Band.

    Aerosmith's one of my favorite bands, and I sadly don't see them coming to RB anytime soon because of GH. They'd be way better on RB, and they have so many great songs that would work.

    It's gonna be just the same.
    You'll get to do drums, vocals and bass like you would on rock band with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.
    Only thing that's different is that the game is based on all their best songs and that you probably won't get the character customization as customizable as RB.

    I really would like to play Dream On really soon, though!

    There is almost no way RB will get any more Aerosmith, the next entire Guitar Hero game is based COMPLETELY off of Aerosmith. That's right, 8 sets of Aerosmith songs.

    Sorry to burst your bubbles.

    If I was Harmonix, I'd be snatching up any Aerosmith songs that Guitar hero didn't use. I'm hoping "Fallin' in Love (Is hard on the knees) won't be part of GH due to it's suggestive title.

    While I would LOVE to see some more Aerosmith on RB I don't see it happening because of the GH game based around them. I already have that on preorder!! It would be great to sing to walk this way though......... Guess that is what I have a nice Sure and a Marshall for!!

    An article I read said it was a "timed" exclusive. This would be like the OXM "exclusive" songs, the Euro "exclusive" songs, etc.

    Give it a month or two after the release, and we should get some Aerosmith songs as DLC for Rock Band. Calm down, you will get to ruin your vocal chords. :)

    Also, I think that should GH:Aerosmith prove to not be a hit (which I think it won't), then we will see them as Rock Band DLC sooner.

    Activision is running the GH name into the ground. I don't think many of the Rock Band players will even bother renting the game from somewhere.

    I just think this is a bad idea, and that this is where we see GH start to die.

    Yeah, GH: Aerosmith is gonna SUCK. I wish Aerosmith would realize Rock Band is way more suited to their music.

    Not so. . . But it just isn't going to do any good for the time frame for which they sell the game. An exclusive isn't nessasarily a "permanent" exclusive. All I'm saying is it probably isn't going to happen any time in the next 12-24 months.
    I saw this happen time and again in karaoke licensing. Someone would tie up rights to an artist and that would last almost like clockwork until 12 months later the rest of the karaoke world (competing manufacturers) would jump on the rights and then you'd see 12 more versions of the same song released.

    I guess all I'm saying is, that exclusive may only last as long as their production run and retail window. By next year they could be up for grabs again.

    Never say never. . . Aerosmith is EXCLUSIVE to GH in 2008, possibly 2009. No one would EVER sign a permanent agreement. That would be stupid.

    You've got some good points U2Phreak. I'm not familiar with licensing but I am almost sure that nobody would sign a permanent agreement.

    Here's my point.
    Its 2025 and you just bought your new Playstation X. And the new platform features a game called World Rocker where you can virtually join your favorite band on stage. Aerosmith has been offered a landmark $1,000,000,000 deal (its 2025. . . the dollar is worth nothing, okay!) to sign over their discography to XYZ software company, oh, but they can't. . . Their stupid attorney back in 2008 signed an lifetime exclusive agreement with a now defunct title called Guitar Hero and Activision, GH's owner would still hold them to the contract and now Aerosmith has to walk away from the deal that would have secured their grandkids through retirement.

    Can you see why this would never happen? Aerosmith isn't that stupid.

    i suppose that the only hope we have is that the GH version doenst sell well and that Aerosmith realizes what a better platform RB is. Hopefully that exclusivity is limited to a time period.

    Sorry to break it to you, Aerosmith has an exclusive deal with Activision and Neversoft. There is no way, unless it was licensed before the deal with Activision took place, that 99% of the songs on Guitar Hero : Aerosmith will be released on the rock band platform until at least GH : Metallica is released.

    However, rumours are that another Aerosmith song will be on its way to RB. And ofcourse, that doesn't rule out songs that AREN'T on the GH game coming onto the game either.

    If there is even the remotest, 0.000001% chance that An Aerosmith Song with creep into the DLC batch, I only wish for one song.

    "Fever".

    It FITS Rockband itself if you read the lyrics.

    Unfortunately the ppl behind Guitar Hero decided tht their game sucks donkey balls so much that they have to buy out the rights to certain bands to even hope to compete against RB... Lol... I dont really see how thts gonna work. All its gonna do is make us do is get pissed at them(not HMX)! More than likely its gonna cause some riots and mass destruction of GH stuff everywhere(HOPEFULLY!!!).
