Metallica scoops us, debuts trailer for Guitar Hero: Metallica on their own site

I don’t know who these Metallica goons think they are, but seriously — what’s up with them getting the first look at Activision’s upcoming Guitar Hero: Metallica?

While it’s certainly a bit unfair, we’ll take what we can get. So if we have to head over to the official Metallica Web site to get our first glimpse of the game, so be it. The trailer looks as expected, with the digital likenesses of Metallica looking like a cross between their real-life counterparts and Statler and Waldorf from The Muppet Show

There’s no information here that we don’t already know, so I guess the next thing on the plate is Activision letting us get our hands on the game. I’m going to go on a limb here and say that it’s probably a lot like Guitar Hero World Tour, just with more Metallica. Can that be a bad thing?

[Update: Apparently, it was Yahoo! Games that went live with the trailer, even before Metallica. Good on ya’.)
