Rock Band and Guitar Hero Love the 80s...
This has turned out to be a good week, I guess, for fans of 80s-era metal bands who also like video games....
For the first time, according to an announcement just hitting my inbox from developer Harmonix and MTV Games, fans of the video game Rock Band will be able to download a band's entire album onto their game consoles for playing in the bestselling rock-star-simulator title. That album: Screaming For Vengeance, by Judas Priest, originally released in 1982.
And yesterday, game publisher Activision announced that it will sell a three-song bundle for Def Leppard. The interesting angle? One of the songs in the pack will be available exclusively on Guitar Hero III before it is released on a new album coming out from the band.
