Happy holidays to all music game fans out there. Today, Activision releases two bundles of joy to their followers: DLC and a new Guitar Hero.
First up, the previously announced holiday DLC for Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero is out. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners (sorry, Wii rockers) can pick up the New Year's tune "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" by Steve Ouimette for free, while the "Celebrity New Years Rock Track Pack" explores the mellower side of rock (then again, that's subjective) with "Harder to Breathe" by Maroon 5, "Our Song" by Taylor Swift, and "New" by No Doubt.
The New Year's ballad is free, but the pack isn't. You'll need to fork over 440 Microsoft Points or $5.49 if you want these songs for 360 or PS3. Wii gamers can pick it up for 550 Wii Points. They're also available for purchase per song at the usual price.
And for those of you who got Guitar Hero 5 after the free Van Halen offer ended, Guitar Hero Van Halen is also out today, boasting over 30 years' worth of musical content.
