Rockstar wants to see what MySpace Music artists can do with Beaterator, and they're providing the PSPs, the games, and a $5,000 prize for the best track.
Hopeful MySpace Music artists who want to take a stab at making music with Beaterator can visit http://beaterator.ign.com/ to apply for a chance at being one of up to 100 artists that Rockstar chooses to participate in the Beaterator and MySpace Music Challenge. Those who make the cut will be sent a PSP and a copy of the game. From there they have 14 days to create something beautiful and poignant, after which their creations will be tossed up on MySpace and IGN communities to be weighed and measured for 25% of their final score.
The winner will receive the $5,000 grand prize and have their track featured on the PlayStation Network, where millions of PlayStation 3 owners visit every day. Not generally for music, but they do visit.
Artists have until October 11th to sign up for a chance, so if you happen to be a MySpace artist, get going. The rest of you can sit and ponder how fortunate it is that I didn't abbreviate this article's headline.
