Madden 10 hits the iPhoneEA Sports hits Apple’s App Store with a new game that takes full advantage of the iPhone and iPod’s touch screen. This version of Madden 10 should make it easier for the casual player to enjoy Madden. Beginners won’t even need the playbook, because the game automatically recommends the appropriate plays and the control stick is right on the touchscreen making it easy for those used to playing it on the console.

It looks like PS1 graphics, but if you must have Madden on your phone, it will be available for $9.99 in the App Store. If you get it today, it’s a discounted $7.99.

Rock Band Metal Track Pack coming

Posted in EA by Shane McGlaun on August 14th, 2009

rockband2-logo-sbI am a big fan of Rock Band and the last track pack I bought was for some friends that like country music. The only downside to the Country Track Pack was that it was over very quickly. If country isn’t your thing, a new metal track pack is coming soon for Rock Band.

EA, Harmonix, and MTV Games have announced that a Metal Track Pack is coming on October 13 for Rock Band and Rock Band 2. The track pack offers 20 tracks and six of them are new to the platform. That means the majority of the songs are not new so you will want to be sure you don’t already own some of them before you buy. The pack will sell for $29.99.

The full track list is below:
