Before Harmonix made Rock Band they made a game called Amplitude, a controller based rhythm game for the PlayStation 2 where you used the controller to move back and forth between tracks and pressed the face buttons in time to the music.  If you've played Rock Band Unplugged or Rock Band Blitz, it's basically the same thing, just with techno music if I recall.  Anywho, for those who remember those days and yearn for them to return, Harmonix has launched a Kickstarter campaign fund a reboot of Amplitude.  You can check out the Kickstarter page for the game, but be advised that according to the site the game is planned to be released for the PS3 and PS4.  Then again the original game was released for the PS2 so I guess it makes sense.

Cambridge, MA ?? April 28, 2014 ?? Today, Harmonix Music Systems launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund one if its most requested games, a reboot of the 2003 controller-based rhythm action game, Amplitude??

Planned for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Harmonix aims to update this cult classic title for modern game consoles with higher-fidelity visuals, new music, and more!

??Bringing Amplitude to modern consoles is something we??ve been dying to do for ages,?? says co-founder and CEO Alex Rigopulos, ??and our earliest fans have been pleading for this for a decade. We??re hopeful that Kickstarter and the support of the community will allow us to finally make this dream a reality.??

??We think this type of synesthetic, audio-visual experience is perfect for modern consoles, widescreen high-definition televisions, and killer surround sound systems,?? adds Ryan Lesser, Project Lead for the upcoming title and Art Director for the original 2003 Amplitude. ??We??re positive that gorgeous, updated visuals running at 60 frames per second, an updated soundtrack, and other new features are going to be blow people??s minds.??

Folks that wish to help make an Amplitude reboot a reality can head over to the Kickstarter page for more details.
