Thanks to the lads at Official Xbox Magazine we’ve got word of three upcoming packs of DLC for Guitar Hero III. The OXM kids make buckets of cash for doing this sort of thing, so let’s let them tell it:
Expect a Foo Fighters pack with All My Life, The Pretender and This Is A Call, a Velvet Revolver pack with Slither, She Builds Quick Machines and Messages and the final pack for the boss battle music.
That all sounds pretty in line with what we’ve come to expect from the series as far as DLC, but following that logic these packs will also be exorbitantly priced. I suppose we have gamers’ natural tendency towards a sedentary lifestyle to blame, but would it really have killed anyone to not buy those 500 point rehashes out of protest? This isn’t Selma, Alabama and people aren’t going to be sending dogs after you or training fire hoses on your ass if you stand up for what you believe in — or more importantly, what I believe in: not spending all of my lunch money on Incubus songs.
Activision, you have one chance to prove yourself. If you blow it, we will take this to the streets. I left a message with Chuck D this morning, and we’ve already got like 60 “Free Mumia” signs, so we’re one Danny Aiello away from a riot.
