B-Side News: Rockstar Collaborates with Timbaland on PSP Game
Further evidence that gaming has gone pop; Rockstar Games is working in unison with the hip-hop producer Timbaland to produce the music and rhythm game Beaterator for the PSP. The game will allow for players to become their own music producer, creating original beats and rhythms at their leisure. Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games explained, "Having Timbaland involved in the game is a real honor and only adds to our excitement about the title." Will Timbaland’s famed beats ensure Beaterator’s success? That’s still up for debate, but we’ll be there to find out when the game launches this summer.
