Those of you standing around waiting for the Guitar Hero III downloadable content announced the other day can now sink your Microsoft Points into half of the promised new releases - or not, in the case of a Christmas freebie - as Major Nelson's blog announces and Live Marketplace confirms the upload of new content.

The Christmas song "We Three Kings" (as rockified and performed by Steve Ouimette) is available for free, along with three songs from Europe - Die Fantastischen Vier's "Ernten Was Wir Säen", Extremoduro's "So Payaso" and Trust's "Antisocial", each of which costs 200 Microsoft Points.

What isn't there so far is the promised Warner/Reprise Track Pack featuring Linkin Park's "No More Sorrow", Mastadon's "Sleeping Giant" and The Used's "Pretty Handsome Awkward", all based on master recordings, and Activision has yet to tell us exactly when that will hit.

Oh yes, and on first impressions "We Three Kings" is pretty wicked, albeit impossibly hard in places. Bit like the game itself.
