+ - Activision scores publishing rights for Bungie->

Bakkster writes "

The partnership is intended to last 10 years and means that Activision, which is owned by Activision Blizzard, will be in a position to publish several iterations of Bungie's next franchise. Given the tremendous success of the various Halo games--all told, they have generated more than $1.5 billion in sales--an exclusive deal to publish Bungie's next series of games is a very big win for Activision, and a blow to its rival, Electronic Arts.

I guess nobody needs to buy a Halo game again."

+ - Rock Band lets independent artist add own songs->

Submitted by Bakkster
Bakkster (1529253) writes "Independent artists will be able to use the XNA to produce the note-charts for their music and sell them in game later this year. Bands will use their original song masters and generate a MIDI file that produces the game 'gems' that players follow along to. Tracks must pass a review process with other XNA members, then a final approval from MTV Games. Songs can be sold between 50 cents and $3, with the artist getting a 30% cut after MTV and Microsoft take their cut. The best tracks will also make their way to the PS3 after a 30 day exclusive period."
