291w ago - Konami has unveiled a multi-platform, multi-instrument rhythm title called Rock Revolution.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are being handled by Zoe Mode, a Brighton based developer who made EyeToy Play Sports and collaborated with Sony London Studio on Singstar.
The DS and Wii editions will be developed by HB Studios, who are just wrapping up Big Beach Sports for Wii.
Only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will include extra peripherals. Konami boasts that the game will feature "the most realistic drum peripheral on the market," with six pads and a kick pedal that mimics an actual kit.
A five-note guitar peripheral can be used for lead guitar or bass. So far there's been no mention of a microphone.
Wii and DS uses will have to contend with using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to emulate playing a guitar and drums, which should - if nothing else - be hilarious to see how it works.
The initial release will feature forty songs and downloadable tracks will follow on PS3 and Xbox 360. According to Shacknews, Konami has confirmed all songs will be cover versions.
No set list has been released so far, but spotted during the demonstration were Blitzkrieg Bop, Chop Suey, Run to the Hills, Cum On Feel the Noize and Joke and the Thief.

The return of Bishi Bashi Special! Classic Konami PSOne title marks publisher's first download release via PlayStation Network in Europe Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has released its first title available via Sony's PlayStation Network download store in the form of PSOne classic, Bishi Bashi Special.
Originally released in 2000, Bishi Bashi Special is the definitive party game, and comprises over 80 fun mini-games - each madder than the last. Converted from two of Konami's Japanese arcade machines - Super Bishi Bashi and Hyper Bishi Bashi - the compilation is designed to test the player's reactions, timing and stamina.
As the name suggests, some involve simply bashing the controller buttons as quickly as possible, while others require pixel-perfect movement and extreme hand-eye coordination. All, however, are tremendous fun and doubly so when played against a friend.
The events go by such names as Juggler Panic, Burger Girl, Ladder of...
