(Nasdaq: ATVI) has today revealed the news all European gamers are waiting for -- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock will be hitting all European territories on November 23rd 2007. The game will be available for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system, Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo and PlayStation 2, and will feature the brand-new wireless Gibson Les Paul guitar controllers

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is the third instalment of the worldwide smash series of Guitar Hero games, taking the franchise to a new level. Featuring a staggering selection of global smash hit master tracks from the likes of Sex Pistols, Muse, Kaiser Chiefs, Killers, Guns N Roses, Iron Maiden and Red Hot Chili Peppers, among many, many others, it is the game which will redefine music-based videogames.

In addition, the game features original compositions from legendary guitarists Slash and Tom Morello, both of whom are featured as boss characters in the game. An all-new multiplayer battle mode allows spectacular duelling alongside the game’s established co-operative and face-off scenarios.
