Also for this game:

Get ready to experience and create music in an entirely new way -- JAM Live Music Arcade, is set to launch later this year for both Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 PlayStation Network.

JAM Live Music Arcade gives you the freedom to become the DJ, producer, and the band leader for total creative access in a live music sandbox. Players take on the role of lead guitarist, bassist, drummer, singer and synth player, offering a deeper connection to the music through jamming, improvisation, and exploration rather than all the emphasis being on the high score.

Just grab any one of the plastic guitar peripherals most gamers have lying around (or your standard game pad) and you're ready to kick off a music gaming experience unlike any other.

"JAM Live Music Arcade builds upon years of our music experience and some of the successes we had with previous iterations of the JAM franchise, but takes it to an entirely new level allowing creative freedom and a closer connection to the music," says Chad Koehler, VP of Zivix.

"The world loves music, and this product provides immediate accessibility in a totally new way. If you're looking to jam out, turn the living room in to a live show and experiment with a near-infinite bank of sounds, effects and rhythms, then this is the experience for you. If you're interested in a more traditional follow-the-leader type of play, then we've included the Arcade Mode just for that purpose. With the great songs and artists we have and the wide variety refreshingly creative different play modes, JAM Live Music Arcade is the breath of fresh air the music gaming genre needs."

JAM Live Music Arcade is a completely new approach to the music genre with a real-time live music sandbox that allows the player to immediately build and customize their very own tunes. Starting with any one of the 30+ licensed songs featured in the game (including hits from Modest Mouse, Fallout Boy, Fatboy Slim, Rise Against, Atmosphere and more), players jam with and remix all aspects of the song -- guitar, bass, drums, synth and vocals -- to experiment with the song and re-create it to their own personality.

All of this is done with any one of the compatible guitar gaming peripherals -- the entire band is in your hands! Accessible and easy to get started, yet deep and almost endless to master, everyone can touch real music across a broad range of sonic tastes. JAM Live Music Arcade offers an immersive level of musical interaction thatÂ’s inspiring, powerful and contagious.

The official XBLA and PSN launch dates, complete set list and more for JAM Live Music Arcade will be revealed in the coming weeks. For more info about the game, check out www.jamlivemusicarcade.com.
