Did Somebody Say *NOT* FREE?!? Guitar Hero 3 DLC Incoming…(Update 1)

Guitar Hero 3 Yellow

Even though it was QUICKLY pulled from Major Nelson’s blog, the miracle that is Google Reader has captured the evidence in glorious cache. It turns out that there will be a “Companion Pack” for Guitar Hero 3 which will include 3 extra songs for you to enjoy. What’s better is… ready for it? IT’S FREE. “Like OMFG!!!11! O RLY? BBQ!” free. Considering how Red Octane and Activision have been completely against satisfying the customer, this marks a huge turn in their attitudes. Granted, I know the packs following this won’t be free, but if you average FREE across another pack of (assumed price of) 500 MSP, that’s 6 songs for $6.25 USD. I’ll bite! Anyway, here are the (no longer existing) details from Major Nelson:

Content: Companion Three Pack
Price: Free
Availability: All Xbox LIVE regions
Dash Text: [ESRB: T (Teen) MILD LYRICS,MILD SUGGESTIVE THEMES] “Carcinogen Crush” as performed by AFI, “Putting Holes in Happiness” as performed by Marilyn Manson. Remixed by Nick Zinner”, “Tina” as performed by Flyleaf. For all song credits please visit www.redoctane.comEnjoy the speculation… and you heard it here first!

UPDATE 1- According to the good folks at X3F Major Nelson has confirmed to them that these 3 songs are not Free on the marketplace. To get them free you must first purchase the GH3 soundtrack which includes a code to get these songs. Sucks Huh?

  1. What’s making me unsure about this is that it was “free” when first announced, but as a bonus download on XBLM if you bought the sound track. You’d get a download code for it. Might explain why it was pulled.

    The Manson remix sucks, by the way. As much as it might surprise some, their new album has a decent amount of guitar work on it and that song might have been fun to play… but the remix basically loops the same riff ad nauseum and gets rid of all of the lyrics except “putting holes in happiness”. I was disappointed.

  2. Still no Ac/DC. Not the Manson song I liked…

  3. it was almost to good to be tru…and ya, y no ac/dc. i wonder if acdc wont sell the copyrights or something. or maybe red octande just dosen’t like the guitar in it, despite how much everyone pleads for just one of thier good songs. And im stilling waiting for the speculated halo song for gh2….i would easily spend 400 points on just that song.

  4. See, Red Octane/Activision still hate people.

  5. Ugh, I guess it was too good to be true. It’s only fair then that I still hate Red Octane and Activision in return…

  6. Throwing around that hate thing pretty liberally huh. I got some words coming for this DLC thing.

  7. So utterly disappointed with the Manson remix.
    The original would’ve been great but that remix is some of the worst crap I’ve ever heard. I want my fuckin points back!!!
