Sugar-Coated Drug-Dealing Game Approved For iPhone 73

Pocket Gamer writes "Of course, Apple wouldn't allow such a salacious games as Dope Wars on the hallowed corridors of the App Store. What Catamount's done is sugarcoat its game (quite literally) and turned it into Prohibition 3: Candy Wars — a reskinned version of the exact same game."

If Metallica released their next album online with a "pay what you think it's worth model"... therefore the ability to pay nothing for the download, you'd all be hitting it like a crackwhore. "I wouldn't even download it for free..." Bollocks. You know you would, with the excuse of "just to see how bad they've gotten". Get off your high horses. You know you want it, morals be damned.

Analysts See 80GB PS3 Dropping To $499 For Holidays 103

Gamsasutra reports on analyst predictions of another PS3 price drop in time for the holidays. This time, the 80GB sku would take the place of the now fully-cleared-out 60GB unit. "Jesse Divnich from fantasy video game prediction market simExchange has said much the same, adding that 'after examining more closely the hardware sales of the PS3 over the last 6 months we have come to the conclusion that the PS3 cannot remain competitive in the current North American environment at its current retail offering at $499 and $599 ... To remain competitive against the other consoles, the Sony PS3 would have to reduce its 80GB SKU by $100 down to $499. Other options, besides a price drop, could be the bundling of more free software titles, which has always been a popular option during the Holiday season.'"
