Rockstar's music game dated - movie

Hip-hop rhythm actioner, Beaterator, coming October

Beaterator? It had slipped our minds too. Probably because it's original unveiling was back in March 2007. But it's coming soon and here's a movie of it in action.

The project is the result of a collaboration between Rockstar Leeds and hip-hop artist Timbaland. And the game's coming out on October 2.

"I've worked closely with Rockstar Games to make something completely unique," said Timbaland. "Beaterator is like taking my music studio and turning it into a suite of tools anyone can use. We can't wait to hear the beats people make and share with the world."

As Rockstar explains: "Featuring thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, Beaterator puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that's portable, accessible and fun."
