Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Rock Revolution (PS3/X360)

Brought to market by the company that created the music videogame genre with breakthrough titles such as DanceDanceRevolution, Karaoke Revolution, Beatmania and Guitar Freaks, Rock Revolution provides an unmatched rock experience.

Rock Revolution ships with over 40 rock songs that span a broad range of bands and eras, along with a wide variety of downloadable songs available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game. When players take the stage, they can choose from up to 15 realistic characters, where they will perform in stunning unique and authentic venues. Additionally, up to six players can rock together online, or up to three players offline can jam in modes such as versus, co-op and band battle. Rockers can also tackle the game solo in the Career mode, where they are tasked with taking their band to the top of the charts by performing songs, learning techniques, creating set lists, and completing challenges.

Rock out anywhere with NDS version, using the stylus for intense rhythm matching sessions. Players can engage in single or local multiplayer modes, putting an entire band experience right in their pocket.

Rock Revolution, rated "T" for Teen, is now available for Xbox 360 and the PS3 and is compatible with most drum and guitar peripherals. Konami will be releasing a Rock Revolution bundle version that comes complete with a copy of the game and a drum peripheral on November 11th, 2008. Rock Revolution is also available now on NDS and is rated "E-10" for "Everyone over 10".

Boogie SuperStar (Wii)

Girls around the world will have a blast singing and dancing their way to stardom, performing today’s hottest music hits.

“Boogie SuperStar provides girls worldwide with a gaming experience that is truly for them,” said Russell Arons, Vice President of Marketing, EA Casual Entertainment. “We listened to what girls wanted in a music game and aimed to provide those elements with Boogie SuperStar including total character customization, today’s most popular songs, engaging game play, and the ability to play with their friends.”

Girls can rock out to Boogie SuperStar, performing real dance moves using the Wii Remote™ or singing their favorite songs into the microphone. They can select their favorite songs made famous by popular artists such as Natasha Bedingfield, the game’s featured spokesperson, as well as Rihanna, Fergie, Katy Perry, The Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5, Leona Lewis, Alicia Keys, Good Charlotte, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Emily Osment, Metro Station, and many more. In addition to the nearly 40 songs available on the North American version, more than 25 additional songs are available on the International version of the game, giving girls the choice to perform hit songs made famous by local European artists.

In Boogie SuperStar, players are discovered by a team of judges and whisked away to a secret island, where they learn the coolest dance moves and show off their singing and dancing skills in the ultimate competition, the Boogie Star Show! Girls can perform with a friend, competing as a team in the Boogie Star Show, or, they can compete against one another with as many as four players. As girls improve and win Boogie Star Shows, they are able to unlock exciting treasures, such as new outfits, new dance moves, and more of their favorite songs, on the way to achieving SuperStar status!
