Rock Band and Guitar Hero pioneer Harmonix has successfully Kickstarted Amplitude with just hours to spare.

Based on its PlayStation 2 cult classic of the same name, Amplitude is a rhythm-based action game in which players rush along a rollercoaster of digital beats and notes, destroying gems with their Beat Blaster ship…

Harmonix creative lead and art director Ryan Lesser says: "Amplitude is a fast-paced rollercoaster ride through an all-digital landscape, where musical notes have been 'silenced' by encapsulating gems. By destroying the gems with their ship players release the music within.

"Each track on this crazy ride represents a specific instrument, so gems can activate sounds including guitar riffs, bass lines, drum beats, vocal lines and more. Players blast through each song section, building the music, darting from track to track, and locking that soundscape together before transitioning to the next musical area."

It’s currently only confirmed for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, although this of course may change further down the line should it be a success.

Anybody here got fond memories of Amplitude and Frequency on PlayStation 2?

Hoping Amplitude makes the leap to PC?

apparently the person who wrote this didn't even bother to look up why this is only for PlayStation platforms.....Sony owns the rights to the series.
