Activision has revealed it will be sneaking a Guitar Hero III demo into the Xbox 360 version of Tony Hawk's Proving Ground.

The full skating bundle will be released here on 9th October, meaning you'll get a two week head start before the GHIII demo rocks its way onto Live.

When taking a break from kick-flipping and break-neck-pipey-manual-shift-pumping, you'll be able to strum along to five fresh tracks in a Desert Rock Tour venue.

  • Lay Down by Priestess
  • Even Flow by Pearl Jam
  • The Metal by Tenacious D
  • Hit Me with your Best Shot as made famous by Pat Benatar
  • Rock You like a Hurricane as made famous by the Scorpions

It should tide you over until the full rock package hits shelves later in October.

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground follows on from the excellent Project 8 instalment last year. This time the skating legend and developer Neversoft aim to bring us more community, customisation, and online features than ever before.

You'll be able to make your own videos and hang out in an online Skate Lounge, you see, as well as enjoy a revamped Skate park creation feature and seamlessly board around with your pals. Trick modes have been polished up, too, alongside the addition of two new moves: Nail the Grab and Nail the Manual. We prefer RTFM.

Look out for our thoughts on it as October approaches.

Meanwhile you can drop in to our Tony Hawk's Proving Ground and Guitar Hero III gamepages for more information.
