Just when you thought that Guitar Hero has reached the end of its novelty, it only goes and announces a special Aerosmith-flavoured edition.

Expected to launch in June, the imaginitively titled Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will see you play as guitarists Joe Perry, Brad Whitford or bassist Tom Hamilton. Any rubber-lipped friends will have to mime along as Steven Tyler.

Yet again your band will go from "Unknown" to "Legend" but we're promised that the band's memories of stand-out gigs will be included in the story, as well as featuring music that has inspired the wrinkly rock veterans. As Tyler quotes so eloquently in the release: "Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies.”
