Sony BMG released a unique iPod Game tonight called musika (iTunes link) (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewGame?id=260035515&s=143441):
Your music, your game! musika is a groundbreaking music visualizer game for your iPod that taps into your song library to create original game play. Characters appear on screen with a wide variety of visual effects. If you see a character that's in the song title, hit the center button. Faster reactions will earn you more points and special icons can be hit for bonus effects.

The $4.99 game requires a 5th generation iPod. It is not compatible with iPhone.

It reminds me of Singstar, without the karaeoke part: after all both are made by divisions of Sony.

Interesting, bet it will munch through the battery life though.

Original and fun. I love quirky games. For me this is the type of game the ipod needs, not the Lost stuff...

Does it come with a rootkit? Eh-eh?




Also, it hooks into your music library - wonder if Sony might be interested in knowing what music you're playing and where it came from?

sony produces a game for the competitor :)
well, probably they earn more money selling music than selling mp3 players.

It looks odd, but definitely original.

Wonder how good it really is ?

First impressions anyone ?

ROFLMAO!

I think the "Helio's Revenge" thread will be referenced as much as "G5 PowerBooks Next Tuesday" and spy shots of unreleased Apple products in elevators.

Time will tell.

I'm interested in this. But then, iPod games are few and far between so I usually go for new games. However, ....

I'm traveling at the moment and so have no access to my 'home' iTunes library. Is it possible for me to buy this and get it to my iPod using a computer with iTunes on at a hotel? :confused:

So we can play NES games on our iPhones, but not iPod games? Come on Steve, what happened to the multi-platform checkbox in XCode? No ARM support? And you hacker boys get on it fast! I want to play iPod games on my iPhone! (please)

And, has anyone thought of emulating a TI-89, that would save sooo much space in my backpack.

Yeah, but would you really want to pack a $500+ phone around at an high school?
