Peter Moore to replace John Riccitiello as EA CEO?

Are you in the mood for a whopper of a rumor? Let's hope, because we've got one here for you: anonymous sources tell Game Front that Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello is about to be let go, and that current EA Sports boss Peter Moore will step in to take his place. It goes without saying that you should probably take this with a grain of salt (or five), but if this is true, it could mean huge things for Electronic Arts, which has been experiencing some stock price woes recently.

(Update!) iOS Rock Band app unplayable after May 31

If you're a fan of the music game Rock Band and have the app on your iPhone or iPad you may notice a pop-up that has been showing on the game. According to the pop-up, the mobile game won't be playable after May 31. I have a feeling since this was a premium purchase app when it was new, there will be unhappy people who lose access to the game.

Sony PS3 Mass Effect 3 multiplayer events may be coming soon

Apparently Sony is working on getting the online multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, which have until now only been live on the Xbox 360 and PC, to the PS3 console. A lot of hubbub was made over the last several days after it was revealed that it was Sony's fault, not game developer Bioware's, because for some inexplicable reason Sony was preventing the events from happening on the PlayStation Network.

Mass Effect 3 copies tied to weather balloons and sent aloft

I have played both the first and second titles in the Mass Effect franchise and these are some my favorite games ever. Being a gaming geek, I even read the book that launched about the same time as the original game. Any fan of the franchise knows the third installment is coming on March 6. If you want to get your hands on the game a full week before it hits stores, you don't need to be professional game reviewer; you just need to have some spare time.

EA Announces Bulletstorm Demo Landing on Xbox LIVE and PSN January 25th

Bulletstorm is one of those rare titles that, even if you see all the videos and read all the reviews on it, you still need to actually play it to get a sense of what the game is about, and why it's so unique in its place amongst all of the other First Person Shooter (FPS) titles out there.

Harmonix Confirms They’ll Keep IP Rights to Rock Band and Dance Central

With the official announcement from Viacom and developer Harmonix that the two companies would be splitting up, and the latter would be considered an independent studio again, there was some confusion as to what the future of downloadable content (DLC) would look like for both games. We previously reported that Harmonix said that DLC for Rock Band would continue right on schedule, but there was some confusion as to whether that had anything to do with Viacom, or if it could change at any given moment. The developer has confirmed to Joystiq that they do indeed still own the IP rights for both games, and that everything is still up to them.
