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).

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
