The lights are on
Q-Games, the developer behind the PixelJunk series of games, is bringing a collection of music visualizers to the PlayStation 3.
The app will be available on Tuesday, August 13 for a limited two-week price of $2.99. After that, the app will be $4.99. It will include six visualizers with names like Fibre, Alien Contact, and Conscious Thought.
On the PlayStation Blog posting for the new music application, Q-Games producer James Mielke says that the reason Q-Games was interested in creating a visualizer was born of PixelJunk's previous music visualizer application, PixelJunk 4am. PixelJunk 4am required a PlayStation Move and camera, limiting its user-base. This new visualizer app can be downloaded and used by anyone with a PlayStation 3.

Our TakeI really like music visualizers on the consoles. I took a lot of advantage of them when I first purchased my PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. When I first purchase the consoles, there's wasn't much do with them right away, so using them as music players was a good way to make me feel like I was getting my money's worth. I especially like the Gaia visualizer on PlayStation 3. I haven't really used them lately, though. Maybe a new batch of visualizers will reignite my interest.

It's about time someone did!
Yay, I guess.
No thanks I'll stick to that awesome Earth one on Ps3.
reminds me of the old days playing cd's on my psone. :D
Awesome, I could use these for when I have my PS3 on and I'm busy doing something else.
Nice. I like their art style and those 3 visualizers are getting old.
Are they actually charging for visualizers? What?
While it would be cool to have some new visualizers (Earth's cool, but the others are pretty typical) I'm not paying people money for these things.
How about something like this?
