PSW Magazine: GTA IV to get In-Game Music

50°
348w ago - According to PSW magazine, GTA IV is set to get custom music via the in-game mobile phone. It will play any music floating around on your PS3's HDD.

This coupled with Criterion's 'Burnout Paradise' update, shows that a way has been found to get around Microsoft's in game music patent.

How this has been achieved hasn't yet been revealed, but at least its looking up for Sony. Also announced were a few other small features of the game. When in public you can get the cops called on you if you are so much as brandishing a gun in front of them.

Mini-games will include: Bowling, Darts, Drinking games.

You can do multiple missions at once.

Different NPC pedestrians will be harder or easier depending on the type of NPC (e.g. an old lady will be easy to knock down, but mid-age men will be more likely to beat you to a pulp).

The game will feature wall piercing like COD4 with the more powerful weapons. The hospitals wont take your weapons if you choose to pay $100 for the privilege.

Some NPC's will hang on to their car as you steal it. A drink of beer will make you stagger around wildly and the screen will blur.

And finaly NPC characters will speak other languages each other.

Labels deny deals on file sharing

360w ago - Three major record labels have denied signing deals allowing their music to feature on a new file-sharing service offering unlimited free downloads.

The service, Qtrax, boasted it would carry up to 30 million tracks from "all the major labels".

But Warner, EMI and Universal all say they have not licensed their music.

Qtrax said it expected an agreement to be reached with Warner and that terms had been agreed with the others even if deals had not been formally signed.

Discussions ongoing

Qtrax aims to allow users to download music from the major labels for free, with advertising revenue used to pay licensing fees.

But Warner says it "has not authorised the use of our content on Qtrax's recently-announced service".

And Universal and EMI said discussions with Qtrax were still ongoing but that licensing deals were not in place.

A spokesman for Sony BMG - the other "big four" record label - was not available for comment.

Qtrax president Allan Klepfisz said that, while a deal with Warner had not been signed, he expected terms to be agreed "shortly".

The Pirate Bay To Bring Back OiNK

50°
373w ago - The Pirate Bay is currently working on an OiNK replacement in an attempt to bring the hundreds of thousands of music albums back online that disappeared during the raid. The replacement will be released within a week and on the BOiNK.cd domain.

BOiNK will be a little different from OiNK. For instance, the tracker will be public and it will start out with a lot less torrents than OiNK had when it was raided. The success of BOiNK will mainly depend on the former OiNK community, who will be asked to upload their old OiNK torrents.

The most important thing about BOiNK is perhaps the message it sends out to the IFPI and the BPI: It shows that that if you stop one tracker, others will pop up days after. It is a hydra. Call it a slap in the face if you want.
