Rockstar Games has announced a 2nd October launch for PSP music game Beaterator. Or, as the game is now known, "Beaterator, presented by Rockstar Games and Timbaland".
Beaterator was once a mere Flash game on the Rockstar website. But so popular did it prove that Rockstar soon fleshed the music mixer into a proper product.
These days, Beaterator packs thousands of loops and sounds, and a suite of mixing tools Timbaland - who helped on the project - reckons are as good as his own.
"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," said the renowned hip-hop producer.
The original version of Beaterator can be played on the Rockstar website.
