Every song from Metallica’s upcoming album “Death Magnetic” will be available for gamers to download and play on “Guitar Hero III” and its sequel “Guitar Hero World Tour” on the same as-yet-unannounced day it is released to retail, the band said on its Web site.

Microsoft also mentioned the availability during the E3 gaming conference underway in Los Angeles. A dedicated Metallica “Guitar Hero” game in the vein of the recent Aerosmith title is also in the offing, but it’s unknown when it will see the light of day.

Aerosmith-only “Guitar Hero”

Activision launches Aerosmith-only “Guitar Hero”

Aerosmith fans can finally get their chance to step into the shoes of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry as video game developer Activision Inc released its Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game on Friday.

Dozens flocked to the Hard Rock restaurant in Times Square to see the legendary five-member rock band debut the game and try out the latest Guitar Hero addition.

Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford even brought his sons to take a look at the band’s creation.

The game features 30 of the band’s most notable hits such as “Love in an Elevator” and “Sweet Emotion.” It also includes songs from various artists Aerosmith performed and collaborated with over the years, including Run D.M.C.’s “Walk This Way” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You” by Joan Jett.

There is even a special guitar controller emblazoned with the band’s red-and-white logo for hard core fans.

The game and guitar controller bundle for Microsoft Corp’s Xbox 360, Sony Corp’s PlayStation3 and Nintendo Co Ltd’s Wii sells for $99.99, with an additional PlayStation2 version for $89.99. The game is also sold individually for each of the consoles and costs $59.99 and $49.99, respectively.

The Aerosmith game is the first Guitar Hero edition that focuses on an individual rock band. The previous three versions of the game featured various rock music genres that ranged from grunge, classic rock, metal, punk and ’80s hits.

“This is an experiment for us,” said Charles Huang, co-founder of Activision’s RedOctane unit, which oversees the Guitar Hero franchise. “There are certain artists that have so much great music like Aerosmith, Metallica and Van Halen … but we wanted to do something much bigger.”

Beatles on Guitar Hero before iTunes???

Beatles reaching Guitar Hero before iTunes?

The Beatles are close to securing a deal that would see their first digital music releases through music games rather than direct downloads from iTunes or or similar stores, says the Financial Times. The UK business paper claims sources who say that the pop rock group may have deals “in a matter of weeks” that bring songs to Guitar Hero maker Activision as well as to Rock Band co-creator MTV Games. While no specifics are mentioned, the deal suggests a Beatles-themed title and alludes to the possibility of making Beatles songs available as downloadable content.
While no involved parties will publicly confirm or deny the talks, the alleged deal would require the approval of the Beatles’ own Apple Corps, their parent label EMI, and Sony/ATV, the owner of most Beatles copyrights. However, any agreement would be valued at “several million” US dollars.

The move would also be crucial to translating the Beatles’ songs into a non-CD digital format, which has yet to take place. The group’s Sir Paul McCartney has predicted a 2008 launch but has said that contracts and the final setup stages themselves have prevented a quick launch; the surviving band members and the estates of George Harrison and John Lennon are said to want an ideal release.

Apple Corps chief Jeff Jones has been more “active” than late founding member Neil Aspinall was in moving the digital conversion process, the paper says.

The Times article doesn’t explain the motivation that would lead to a release of some songs as game-ready pieces rather than traditional music, though Sony/ATV head Martin Bandier notes that permission to play Beatles covers during American Idol has spurred a renewed interest in the music through alternate channels, including as soundtracks and through cellphone carriers./p>
