Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos
said in a recent http://arstechnica.com/articles/culture/alex-rigopulos-interview.ars/2 that he would leave to make a sequel of Amplitude for the PlayStation 3 console.
He noted that the game is still close to his heart and would love to do it for the PS3. Amplitude was released back a few years ago for the PS2 and made gamers control a 'beat blaster' down a path of different shapes and lengths, containing up to six tracks.
To quote: Before Guitar Hero blew the music and rythm genre wide open, Rock Band developer Harmonix was working on smaller titles, like FreQuency and Amplitude. And though the developer has gone from a small developer of just a few dozen to a staff well into the hundreds, they haven't forgotten where it all began. In fact, they may even be doing a sequel to Amplitude.
"[Amplitude] is still close to my heart. I love it," Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos said in a recent interview "I'd love to do a sequel to Amplitude, actually. I would love to come back and do it right for the PlayStation 3, for example".
As of right now Sony owns the rights to Amplitude, which would mean the title would be exclusive to the PS3. More PlayStation 3 News...
