Video: This is the Beaterator trailer

Look what just showed up in our inbox: the trailer for Beaterator, Rockstar and Timbaland’s PSP and iPhone effort to bring the joy and excitement of beaterating to a new generation of Pete Rocks.

Hopefully this video explains, once and for all, that, no, Beaterator isn’t a “music game,” but rather a music creator, à la Ableton Live. (It’s run-on sentence Thursday.)

And again, if all Beaterator does is give us the opportunity to discover more underground talent, then it’ll all have been worth it.

You do sort of get the feeling that someone came up to Timbaland one day all, “You should make a video game.” Then Timbaland called his agent and, some time later, here we are.
