Beyonc?as confessed that she is a gamer who especially enjoys Wii games and Guitar Hero.The singer just finished shooting a TV ad for the game Rhythm Heaven on the Nintendo DSi system, which sees players tap a stylus on the screen in time with music.
"I like all the Wii games. Love Guitar Hero. This reminds me a little bit of a portable Guitar Hero, which is great, because I don't want to carry around a big guitar," she told Entertainment Weekly.
She also said that she is better at Guitar Hero than playing actual guitar.
"At one point I was learning to play guitar, maybe ten years ago. I wrote 'Dangerously In Love' on the guitar. I'm very upset with myself for stopping," the 'Diva' singer admitted.
Beyonc?dded that she would like her own version of Guitar Hero or Rock Band, saying: "I would love to imagine people playing to my songs. I've actually played some karaoke games with the old Destiny's Child songs. It's so funny, because I don't get great scores. I'm like, 'How is that possible?!'"http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/a149967/beyonce-enjoys-video-games.html

The game will also feature PlayStation Network support, reveals Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, hinting that it will be available via digital distribution.

The update will be managed by the director of the first Sigma, Yosuke Hayashi, as the director of Gaiden II left the company last year under bad terms.
The revamped action brawler will be released by the end of the year.http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/a149922/ninja-gaiden-sigma-2-coming-to-ps3.html
