Activision has confirmed that it has secured rock band Aerosmith exclusively for use in the company’s Guitar Hero franchise.

Speaking to Newsweek, Activision’s Tim Riley said that aside from a previous commitment to include “one or two tracks” in EA’s Rock Band, the group is now exclusive to the Guitar Hero brand.

"I can say that we do have the band exclusively, and their catalogue should be exclusive to us beyond the one or two tracks they had licensed out to Rock Band before we made our deal," said Riley.

The legendary rock group, lead by vocalist Steve Tyler, are currently set to appear in the upcoming Guitar Hero: Aerosmith on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and Wii in June 2008.
