Sony’s upcoming motion controller is all the rage at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Supported games have been announced, demos have been show, and the general concept has been well received.

But is motion control the wave of the future for video games or is it simply a fad that will eventually fade away?

Get Your Rock(Band) on with Double Microphone Edition

The Beatles: RockBand has been available for some time now.

While some of us have taken the jump and are loving the Rock God lifestyle*, we know that there are some of you out there who might not have embraced the new wave of music game just yet.

It seems that Harmonix are aware of this too, as they have put together a tempting new musical package.

Forget Rock Band – Guitar Hero Beatles is coming…

This Week In Rock Band – The Foo Dropkick A Blurry Melon

Do you enjoy the music of the Foo Fighters? Harmonix thinks you do, and they know everything music related. Everything. So there’s more Foo for yoo. A new pack (of the three track persuasion) will commemorate the return of the Fighters to Rock Band. But wait, there’s more.

Next 15 Beatles Rock Band songs unveiled; brings total to 25

The Beatles have composed over 200 songs so narrowing down the list to 45 for their upcoming version of Rock Band could be a difficult task. Announced at this years E3 were the initial ten that would be included in the game; “I Saw Her Standing There,” “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “I Feel Fine,” “Taxman,” “Day Tripper,” Back In The USSR,” “I Am The Walrus,” “Octopus’s Garden,” “Here Comes The Sun,” and “Get Back.”

We now have the next fifteen that are to be included, bringing the total to 25. With only a fraction of tracks left, any guesses on what songs are to be announced next?

Rock Band to give artists their own (limited) stage

Rock Band to give artists their own (limited) stage

Harmonix and MTV have announced today that Rock Band will allow artists to upload their own music in the future.

Much like websites such as MP3.com and others that sprang up many years ago, the team behind Rock Band intend to allow independent musicians to upload their own work and sell it to Rock Band owners.

Whilst this does solve one problem for Harmonix and MTV – namely the delivery of a regular stream of licenced music – the new system will also offer challenges that require considerable thought.

This Week In Rock Band – Three For All

Everything comes in twos. Knowing and Push. Napalm and Cordite. This guy and Trophy Whoring. Too bad no one told Harmonix. Three bands, three songs, three packs. Three is the new two.

Judas Priest, Big Dipper and The Dead Weather drop original master recordings (some live) this Thursday in the Rock Band Store. The big story here is the alternative rock supergroup The Dead Weather; their three pack will (almost) coincide with the band’s debut album Horehound.

This Week In Rock Band – Green Day, And Manson, And Slayer…Oh My!

There’s a new tour in town and its name is the RockStar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Okay, so it is more a festival than a tour, but facts are facts: this one kicks the Vans Warped Tour’s ass from here to next Thursday and here’s why: it’s a metal and rock festival.

Six tracks from RockStar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival performers such as Slayer, Cannibal Corpse and Marilyn Manson are contending for your hard earned dollars, pounds or euros against an arguably far more popular threesome. Green Day is coming to town.

This Week In Rock Band – We Don’t Need No Instructions To Know How To Rock

The Vans Warped Tour is in full swing and so is the content on the Rock Band Store. Three more tracks from bands you may never heard of (but should) make their way to your PlayStation 3 this Thursday.

Damn Foreigners, taking all the good jobs Rock Band DLC spots. Feels Like the First Time, Headknocker and Blue Morning, Blue Day could be yours in the first Foreigner Track Pack. In case you need instructions on how to rock, don’t ask us. We don’t need them and we don’t have them. We’re hot blooded; go ahead and check it…and see. Now if we could get the legendary ‘Foreigner Belt’ as DLC we would be all set.

E3 09; PS3 Attitude’s Best and Worst of E3 2009

June 2009 marks a historic moment for PS3 Attitude. It was the first of what we hope to be many E3’s to be covered live from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the course of four days, we would cover three different press conferences, multiple booth tours and live demos, and who know’s how many crossings from the South Hall to the West Hall, not to mention the meeting rooms upstairs. There were both ups and downs, good games and bad, but overall, it was an experience like no other.

Join us as we recap some of our favorite (and least favorite) moments of E3 2009 along with some never before seen pictures taken by yours truly…

E3 09; Beatles Rock Band “All You Need Is Love” not so exclusive after all

It looks like the recently announced Xbox 360 exclusive song for Beatles Rock Band, “All You Need Is Love,” is not so exclusive after all. In speaking with Jeff Castaneda of MTV Games, PS3 Attitude asked if the PlayStation 3 would be seeing any love. Instead of the usual ‘no comment’ we expected, we were actually surprised by what he said…

This Week In Rock Band – Cranberry Zombie Minister

We have another debut this week; a three-way debut. Ministry is bringing more metal to the Rock Band library with a three pack from hell. We say bring it on.

The Zombies are coming! The Zombies are coming! They are a 60’s English rock band, get it? The Cranberries complete the hat-trick debut with just one track, but we’ll take it anyway.

This Week In Rock Band – Welcome To His Nightmare

Alice Cooper is making his Rock Band debut this week and we don’t even have the proper face paint to honor this momentous occasion. Who is Alice Cooper you ask? UrbanDictionary.com has him as “One of the greatest rock artists ever who only stupid people havn’t [sic] heard of.” We have to agree.

As far as Taking Back Sunday goes; sorry boys, you are not worthy.
