Def Jam Rapstar
Def Jam Rapstar Gets a Kinect Patch and Price Cut
Written By
View author's profile

Def Jam Rapstar has been reduced in price in the US this Christmas, as Konami has announced via the official Def Jam Rapstar site, that the MSRP has dropped to $39.99 for the standalone game, while a look at Amazon reveals that the microphone bundle has also fallen to $49.99. Both have also been reduced by a few dollars on the retailer's site and have also been reduced to £33.81 and £43.81 on Amazon UK.

But that's not all, as those of you that own Kinect rather than an Xbox Live Vision camera can now use the motion sensor to record your performance and upload it for all the Def Jam Rapstar community massive to see. This makes a lot of sense, and so we hope to see more games following suit with Kinect updates of their own in the near future. *cough* Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit's profile pictures! *cough*

So, perfect your best hip-hop swagger, get your attitude in order and go record your best rapstar performance for the whole world to see. But for crying out loud, draw the curtains... the neighbours just won't get it. Just ask Webb... then again, I'm not sure you're supposed to play the game naked.

I may be a achievement whore with over 300k but I will never put this on my gamertag. To me this is worse than my horse and me 2.

Is that for a new achievement to see how much gold you have around your neck?

Out of curiosity is this site hosted in the UK? A lot of content & news articles is done from a UK POV.

I was at a game conference, and this game actually has some of the most innovative features to date. Unfortunately they tied those great features to a very "targeted" game, then made it worse by censoring the lyrics. An M rated version of this game would actually do much better. As for the Kinect update...PLEASE do patch some "old" Vision camera game. Burnout, Fight Night, NFS, Viva Pinata, and if Totem was patched I might actually play it! Lighting conditions are so much better with Kinect!

@6, I think that goes to show how much he despises THIS game...thus the reason he said "I'm an achievement whore but wouldn't play this game".

@5 In the UK they have bad coughing problems it seems!! 0_o

@11, just because people say the word online doesn't make it acceptable.

OT: I'm still sticking with Rock Band. Not interested in the serlist of this game at all.

@11 Just so you know your comment just makes you look an ignorant immature fool, you obviously posted it just so you can use the "n" word. Your language is not warranted this is a respectable site. You are just gonna upset the ones who like the game and start a flame war.

A lot of the music on this game sounds better than todays shit "rock", and thats coming from someone that strictly listens to 60's-80's music. I may not like rap very much, but I'd rather listen to it than shit bands like Linkin Park, Green Day, etc. I may not have played the game but I have read a lot articles on this game and it seems to have a lot of great features. And to that achievement whore with 300k that said they wouldnt put this in their played games, are you fucking stupid? I think the fact that you've played Hannah Montana The Movie already ruined it for you, granting you the title of faggot.

#11- More people DON'T like F1 Racing than those that DO, so does that mean their isn't a market for an F1 Racing game? Of course their is a market for it.

So, your 'more dislike than like' theory is just pure shit, sorry to say. And trust me...a looooooot of white people buy Hip Hop/Rap CD's, as that type of culture and lifestyle is desired by many people of all colors.
