Steven Tyler and Co. debut on Wii, 360, PS3, and PS2.
The first band-branded Guitar Hero game is out this week, with Aerosmith being the chosen group to head the lineup of songs. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith features 25 Aerosmith songs and 16 songs from other artists, including the Kinks and some of Joe Perry's (Aerosmith's lead guitarist) solo work.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith comes out this Wednesday on the Wii, PlayStation 2 and 3, and Xbox 360, and will be available as a stand-alone game or bundled with a guitar, ranging from A$149.95 (US$139.63) to A$169.95 (US$158.25).
