BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: There wasn't a whole lot of new software at Leipzig ? although, of course, it was the first time that most Europeans got a glimpse of the games we saw at E3 in July. But there were a few intriguing new titles that we'll probably see in the U.S. as well.

Sony led the way, again, with "Heavy Rain," a moody PS3 thriller from "Indigo Prophecy" developer Quantic Dream. The company also scored with "EyePet," a virtual critter that reacts to your movements through the PlayStation Eye camera attachment. One game, however, that's not likely to cross the Atlantic is "SingStar: Queen" ? as in the rock band Queen. The "SingStar" karaoke series has never quite caught on stateside, but who wouldn't want to sing like Freddie Mercury?

Konami offered an intriguing new action game, "Lords of Shadow," which it described as "a dark fairy tale" and "an epic battle between good and evil" set in the Middle Ages. Sega has revamped its zombie-hunting franchise with "House of the Dead Overkill," which has the flavor of a missing episode from Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse." And Ubisoft has something for fans of "Super Monkey Ball" and "Ape Escape": the virtual pet we've all been waiting for in "Monkey Madness."

Forget SingStar... There needs to be a Queen pack for Rock Band! ;-)

I never heard of SingStar since I live in the USA, but yes, I agree 100% that Queen needs to do Rock Band or like Aerosmith, Guitar Hero......

The only games on the horizon that I care about are from Capcom. Mega Man 9, Resident Evil 5, and Street Fighter 4, baby.

Couldn't agree more :).

I was just checking that a couple of days ago. I hadn't played Rockband in a while and I was looking at the song packs available... No Queen :S.

I would love "drumming" to Queen songs. That's my favorite instrument from the bunch, although I like to sing as well. Great game!

Give over people.
You're all asking for yet ANOTHER excuse for Queen to release their greatest hits songs on a "different format".
maybe I'm getting too negative in my old age, but if they release what you're asking for, they'll simply use it as an excuse not to release something we haven't got.

It would have been great promotion for The Cosmos Rocks to get C-lebrity on Rock Band 2 or the new Guitar Hero.
