Guitar Hero was the best selling video game of 2007, and now it’s branching out with a new version – and it will be the first music-based game to feature one band.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will allows gamers to experience the band’s Grammy winning career, from the first gig to becoming rock royalty. As fans progress, they can rock out to Aerosmith’s greatest hits, as well as songs from artists that the band has either performed with or been inspired by in some way.

“We are extremely excited that Aerosmith chose to team up with Guitar Hero, bringing one of the world’s all-time best selling artists together with one of the biggest video game brands, to deliver a new and unique interactive way for our customers to connect with the artists and their music,” explained Dusty Welch, head of publishing for Activision/Red Octane.

“This partnership will give Aerosmith, a band that has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, a powerful and innovative platform to reach their fans and new audiences.”

The game is due to roll out in June on Microsoft's Xbox 360, Sony's PlayStation 2 and PlayStation, plus Nintendo Wii.
