Aerosmith tracks exclusive to Guitar Hero, not hitting Rock Band

Guitar Hero Aerosmith

Looks like artist music is going to start becoming exclusive to specific brands, as it has been made public through Activision PR that all Aerosmith tracks are going to be exclusive to . What this means is that, no matter how good the Rock Band Store gets (and it is very good), you will never see any more Aerosmith tracks appearing in that franchise. Sure, owners do get one Aerosmith track, that being “Train Kept a Rollin,” but seriously, that is just a drop in the bucket.

What we are wondering is, as these music/rhythm-based games continue to flourish, how many other artists are going to sign on for the exclusive? What do you guys think?

it just other step for artists to make more money and get their music heard.

ah, i like the idea of them staying with guitar hero, i dont like rock band XD
i think its an exremely cheap ripoff of gh.
maybe thats aerosmiths reasoning…..

I don’t see that a particular band being exclusive to one franchise as being a bad thing. When one band gets mentioned in a blog, like AeroSmith, they get free publicity. And as they say, any publicity is good publicity.
