Def Jam Rapstar gets release date, price, seven new songs

Konami has revealed that its hip-hop music game Def Jam Rapstar will drop on October 5, coming bundled with a microphone and selling for $70 on the PS3 and Xbox 360, with the Wii version costing $60. Additionally, seven new songs and two freestyle tracks have been announced for the game.

With EA and Activision likely dropping their next music games this fall, Konami is looking to provide an alternative to rock with Def Jam Rapstar when it releases on October 5 in the U.S (the game will hit Australian stores the month after). The game, which has currently only been announced as part of a microphone bundle release, will have over 40 tracks for hip-hop fans to test their mettle with. With today's reveal of seven new songs and two exclusively-produced freestyle tracks, we are now aware of just under 20. The full list is below, with new additions in bold:

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
