MEGADETH are planning to follow in the footsteps of fellow rockers Aerosmith and Metallica and develop its own GUITAR HERO video game.
Frontman Dave Mustaine is a big fan of the popular music simulator, and is desperate for the veteran band to land its own edition.
And he reveals he's in early talks with gaming executives to sign the deal.
Mustaine writes on Megadeth's official website: “I have recently had two very important high-level meetings with the people from Activision and Neversoft, and we are talking about a lot of things, but a Guitar Hero box set is not as attractive to me and the people from Guitar Hero as the new idea that they offered me, as the creative stuff that we are talking about is over-the-moon!”
But the singer hints there could be obstacles in the band's path and alludes to a past dispute between the band's label WEA and Guitar Hero bosses.
Mustaine adds, “I just hope that someone doesn’t stand in the way of this happening. I know that there are a lot of really damaging results from our mothership (WEA Records) having some legal disputes with YouTube and Guitar Hero to name just a few.”
