The demo includes the following songs:
- “Lay Down” by Priestess
- “The Metal” by Tenacious D
- “Even Flow” by Pearl Jam
- “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar
- “Rock You Like a Hurricane” by The Scorpions
The demo also includes the multiplayer option so that you can square off against a friend (as long as you have two guitars handy).
Currently, there are three ways to get the demo. If you’ve read this blog before, you probably guessed that I opted for door #3 (mainly to see if this reported hack actually worked).
- Buy or rent Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground — the demo is included on the game disc
- Buy the latest issue of the Official XBOX Magazine
- Download an ISO off of the internet and burn it to a CD-R or DVD-R
All you need to do is download the ISO file (this should get you pointed in the right direction) and burn it to CD-R or DVD-R using a program like DVD Decrypter (or any other ISO-burning app). Once the disc is finished, pop it into your XBOX 360, go to the Games blade and select Demos & More. The Guitar Hero III demo will show up in the list with any demos that are already downloaded to your console.
I tried the demo on the XBOX 360 we have here at the TechRepublic office and it loaded just fine. I’ll have to wait until I get home this evening to get my rock on with the actual GH guitar.
