Rockstar makes iPhone debut with Beaterator

Rockstar's music game gets the 'app' treatment

With the company's wares not performing up to expectations on the DS and PSP, it should come as no surprise that Rockstar is now looking to Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch as potential new gaming platforms. The company announced via their newswire that its first official game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the Timbaland-headlined music-creation title Beaterator, has released today for $4.99.

At 1/8th the price of the recently-released PSP iteration, Beaterator for the iPhone and iPod Touch obviously won't be a straight port of the version that appeared on Sony's platform. In the release announcement, Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser said "The entire application has been revamped to provide an extremely accessible and innovative experience for iPhone and iPod touch owners."

Rockstar has also promised an iPhone/iPod Touch version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which was originally slated for a fall release. As for Beaterator, you can find it right now for $4.99 (iTunes link).

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
