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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
