This coming Tuesday, January 27 (yes, you read that correctly, Tuesday), we're all VERY proud to welcome Bruce Springsteen to the Guitar Hero World Tour family, as you'll be able to download the Bruce Springsteen Track Pack for FREE from the PlayStation Store.

The Track Pack has two great songs, the classic anthem "Born to Run" (if you don't know, go ask Dad about it and watch him reminisce about his younger days as he begins to sing at the top of his lungs) and Bruce's new single "My Lucky Day". We're giving this to you on a Tuesday, as it coincides with the release of Bruce's new album "Working On A Dream".

Bruce has been pretty busy lately, as he won a Golden Globe, performed at the Inaugural Celebration, is releasing a new album AND will perform at halftime of the Big Game in Tampa on February 1. So do yourself a favor and add these songs to your ever-growing Guitar Hero World Tour set lists! We hope you enjoy playing these songs as much as we enjoyed delivering them to you.

iPhone Developer Quits Day Job After 'iShoot' Hits Number One

50°
288w ago - Developer Ethan Nicholas at Sun Microsystems has handed in his two weeks notice after finding success with an iPhone game.

His game iShoot Lite went live on January 3, 2009 and less than ten days later, it was the top app on the iTunes App Store with a massive 16,792 downloads in one day!

To quote: "iShoot Lite" went live on January 3, 2009. Less than ten days later on January 11, the original iShoot rocketed out of obscurity as the number one Top Paid App in the iTunes App Store with 16,972 downloads in one day.

It virtually blasted the reigning number one iFart app off its perch overnight. iShoot simultaneously grabbed the Top Free App number one spot as well.

For an app to reach number one and remain there, some 10,000 plus downloads per day are required. That's roughly $21,000 a day for this $2.99 app after Apple takes its 30-percent stake.

Nicholas attributes iShoot's meteoric rise to the release of his 'Lite' version, giving millions a free chance to experience the thrill of launching tank artillery. It's important to note that a $2.99 price point was no barrier to the ultimate success of iShoot.

"I'm still in shock," Nicholas said, "I've given my two week notice at Sun Microsystems. I'm gonna do this full time now."

289w ago - Today gourangaman656 let us know of a PlayStation 3 Development Kit DECR-1000 A (TOOL) that has hit eBay [Register or Login to view links]!

The seller is haly20, and at the time of this writing the current bid is only US $1,125.00.

Needless to say, if the auction doesn't get pulled over the next 10 days the price is likely to exceed $10,000.00 but still quite interesting as they are extremely rare to find!

What is so good about a PS3 TOOL over a PS3 Debug/Test console? Among other things, this unit can dump/debug the PS3 Hypervisor and Kernel... meaning PS3 Devs and hackers would LOVE to get their hands on one!

To quote: This auction is for a PlayStation 3 Development Kit, MSRP $10,250. It has been opened for photographing and that is all. BRAND NEW IN BOX. The console is sold as-is, with all accessories and manuals in English.

The system appears to have two slots for HDD's with HDD's already inserted, along with a Blu-ray slot. All photos are original and if the part you are looking for is not in the description, it is not included.

I will ship in the box that it came in. This thing is incredibly heavy shipping is as you see on the calculator. If you have any questions, feel free to...
 

Resident Evil 5 Demo Hits XBox 360 January 26, PS3 a Week Later

100°
289w ago - American gamers will finally get a chance to try long-awaited sequel.

Joystiq [Register or Login to view links] that the long-awaited Resident Evil 5 demo is coming very soon.

While it's been out on Japanese consoles for quite a while, American audiences haven't gotten a chance to try the game.

It will come to the Xbox 360 on January 26, and enjoy a week of exclusivity. After that, we assume the following Thursday, the PlayStation 3 will have its turn.

Resident Evil 5 is on the most-anticipated list for a lot of gamers this season, but early previews have some wondering if it's too similar to its predecessor. Luckily, soon players will get a chance to test the game and see how they feel about its similarities for themselves.
