Gamers and Music Lovers Experience Music Mixing First-HandFrequency for Playstation2 Lets Gamers Mix Famous Artists' Music (November 20, 2001)
"Frequency provides PlayStation 2 fans with the opportunity to understand music mixing and experience it first-hand," said Paul Oakenfold, world-renowned DJ. "Through its user-friendly gameplay, gamers can take advantage of their video game skills and use them to lay down music by some of the top music acts in the world."
"Frequency is poised to push the music experience to a whole new level for both the musician and gamer," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "Both gamers and music fans will appreciate this simple, yet addictive gameplay and the wide variety of music found in Frequency. With this innovative game, we continue to expand the breadth of unique content available for PlayStation 2.
In Frequency, music mixing begins with one instrument, such as drums where players must hit the appropriate PlayStation 2 controller buttons at the right time in order to match the rhythm of the song; incorrect timing will decrease players' musical time bar. Once this instrument is successfully mixed, players can move on to another instrument, such as guitar and continue through all the instruments to lay down the song and perform all instrumental tracks before the musical timing bar runs out. Players can also compete with their friends and family by saving re-mixes they create onto memory cards and trade them with their friends as unique levels in the game mode, providing a "multi-player challenge." In addition, gamers can compete in a music jam session with up to four players simultaneously.
The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated Frequency "E" for Everyone. For more information about the ERSB visit www.esrb.com.
