New GUNS N' ROSES Track for Guitar Hero III?

According to Product Shop NYC, Activision has announced it will release Guitar Hero III, the fifth version of the guitar jamming game, in early 2008. The soundtrack will include a wide variety of material, including tracks by QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and (possibly) new GUNS N' ROSES. As of now though, the only tracks confirmed for the game are listed at the bottom of this article.

Guitar Hero III will also include more master recordings than previous iterations and a greater number of original recordings. The company also confirmed that the game would be getting two new controllers — a Gibson Les Paul guitar model for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii consoles, and a Gibson Kramer guitar for the PlayStation 2. Both controllers will be wireless. The new game will also get a host of new features, including a "multiplayer action-inspired battle mode," and authentic rock venues. An expanded online multiplayer mode will allow gamers to compete with other guitar heroes worldwide.

RedOctane's head of publishing, Dusty Welch, said that the team had listened to fans' requests for this edition of the game. He commented, "Many of the top bands and songs we've tried to get in the past are now on board, and we've definitely got some giant aces in the hole to say the least."
