Speaking during Activision Blizzard’s Analyst Day last night, company boss Bobby Kotick claimed that Guitar Hero: Aerosmith had netted the ageing rockers more money than any of their previous albums.

“[Their] version of Guitar Hero generated far more in revenues than any Aerosmith album ever has,” said Kotick.

“Merchandising, concert sales, their ability to sign a new contract [have] all been unbelievably influenced by their participation in Guitar Hero.”
