Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Hands-on Mobile and Magmic Games are the two companies that are partnered up in an effort to bring one of the best mobile games of all time to your BlackBerry. Being a primarily business oriented device the BlackBerry has been passed up on a lot of really cool mobile games, but this is one that you can mark off the list.

Personally I am just wondering if you’ll have access to all 5 frets or if they are sticking with the three frets that previous mobile versions have offered up. When you first download the game you’ll get 15 tracks including “Cherub Rock”, “Miss Murder”, “Monsters”, “Suck My Kiss”, and “Trippin On A Hole”.

Harmonix exceeds sales expectations with Rock Band, earns a big check from Viacom

You have to hand it to Harmonix, when it comes to rhythm games, they always seem to be on top of things. While they had success with previous titles, they really changed the industry with Guitar Hero, and kept the momentum going with Guitar Hero 2.

Rumor – Rock Band may not hit most European consoles until September

If rumors are to be believed, some European rockers may have to wait until September before getting their Rock Band on.

Rock Band DLC for February 5

It's Tuesday, and that means there are fresh tracks just waiting to be downloaded for Rock Band. Well, that's if you're an Xbox 360 owner. My apologies to all of the PS3 rockers out there, you still have to wait an extra two days for your new tracks. While I can't say that this week's tracks are some of my favorite tunes, they are all master tracks. This week's bands are KISS, Faith No More and the B-52's. Hit the jump for the track listing.

Rock Band and Guitar Hero sales outperformed legal music downloads last year

Rock Band and Guitar Hero sales outperformed legal music downloads last year

It's a well-guarded secret that I play Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The previous statement was, in fact, a lie. I play them quite often (Rock Band more than Guitar Hero these days) and find myself buying new downloadable tracks on a regular basis. Apparently I'm not alone, as the games actually pulled in more money last year than all of the (legal) digital music downloads combined.
