Activision, in a genius marketing move to possibly revive a franchise who's sales have slipped in recent years, has announced they will be releasing a 5 song demo of Guitar Hero III with Tony Hawk's Proving Ground which ships October 9. PlayStation 3 owners are out of luck though, as this demo will only be available with the Xbox 360 version of the game.  If Tony Hawk doesn't do it for you, the demo will also be released two weeks later on Xbox Live.

"Music is such a huge part of skateboarding culture and pairing the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock demo with Tony Hawk's Proving Ground makes perfect sense," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane. "We're excited to bring together two highly anticipated games and give fans their first chance to rock out with the franchise that's taken the world by storm."

The demo will be set in the new "Desert Rock Tour" venue. The included tracks are:

  • Lay Down by Priestess (listen)
  • Even Flow by Pearl Jam (listen)
  • The Metal by Tenacious D (listen)
  • Hit Me with your Best Shot as made famous by Pat Benatar (listen)
  • Rock You like a Hurricane as made famous by Scorpions (listen)

I don't know if a five song demo is enough to get me to buy another Tony Hawk game, but then again, I have sat out the last few versions, and Proving Ground looks like it could be fun.  Either way, I can always wait two weeks, and get it from Live.
