This makes me sad. Not because it's not as good as say rock band, and that it might actually have a chance if they improve it, but because we already have a great title like this from Konami: Guitar Freaks N DrumMania.

Yeah, this just makes it look like Konami are ripping themselves off because I cant see it being as good as there arcade offerings. Still, looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

All I have to say for now is that all you guys crying for Dream Theater in Rock Band, well Pull Me Under will be in Rock Revolution.

There's too many band simulators coming out. But RR might not have peripherals on Wii. If this is true I'm going to laugh so hard at Konami as they board the fail boat.

Omg Dr. Feelgood.

Even though thats in RB i think. but still..

This should be fun, i know I'll get it, cause I buy all the Guitar Heroes and Rock Band, and I'll get this too. But the board being vertical will be kinda weird.

If they were the so called "Originators",(sp?) was it REALLY necessary to add a blue and orange to the guitar? I would have loved it if they made it super hard using just GRY since that's what I was used to in Guitar Freaks. Bleh @ this game.





Will RB drums and GH guitars work for this on the 360? jw. >_>

I was looking at the gameplay for this. The kit might be great (I think GHIV's is better because it's not all one solid mat almost) but they really need to change the visuals. It looks like a 2D crappy version of almost exactly what RB and GH are. I just want them to either make it on par with those visually, or do something to differentiate themselves.

Seems like everyone is jumping on the music rhythm game bandwagon these days and seeing as Konami was somewhat instrumental in starting the whole genre it makes sense that the would come out with their own answer to Guitar Hero and Rock Band. That answer is Rock Revolution. Rock Revolution is mainly centered around the drumming although there will be guitar and bass available as well. There were no guitars in evidence but they were keen to show off their drum kit which features a total of six drum pads and a pedal. They also made sure to show us how quiet the pads themselves were so we could avoid the problem of "annoying family and neighbors with the constant tapping. I'm sure I have NO idea what they were referring to with that...

The game will be coming out for the PS3, Xbox 360. Wii and the DS with each version having it's own distinct features but all will include a career mode and forty songs to play along with. Oddly, the console versions will not include vocals, but the DS version will. There is no official song list yet, so keep your eyes peeled for more announcements regarding that but I did see a few that were available on the demo which were Blitzkrieg Bop, Detroit Rock city, We're Not Gonna Take It and All The Small Things. There are eight playable characters and various locales ranging from garage to county fair to rock arena. Unfortunately, even though they showed off the drum kit at the presentation, they didn't provide any photos of it so keep an eye for that as well.

Is Rock Revolution going to be a Guitar Hero or Rock Band killer? Probably not, but it will be interesting to see how it actually does in the market. I'm afraid however, that this might be a case of too little too late.

Konami makes the crappiest commercials. I think they're relying on "fanbase" too much. Sure they get away with that shitty commercial for DDR Hottest Party 2 (seriously go search it on YouTube I'll wait...)






You're back? Okay well Rock Revolution is pretty much the only "new" thing they've done with their Bemani products in America. They average joe gamer is gonna look at the 3 products and see RR as the weaker product.

Talking about Samba De Amigo, heres a funny trailer for the game. I like how it pokes fun at the 'wii would like to play' ads. Plus monkeys are aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeesome.

This game is going to be a failure. I already know it. Konami is going to be looked at as the copy cat.

I'm so hype.
