Game Review: Guitar Hero 5 Mobile for BlackBerry by GLU


Guitar Hero 5 for BlackBerry is a musical rhythm game developed by GLU and distributed by Bplay. The Guitar Hero series is a megahit on game consoles and pioneered a whole new genre of expensive controllers and premium downloadable extra songs.

WES Exhibitor Spotlight: Bplay


Bplay logoYou might be wondering what Bplay, a game and theme publisher, is doing at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium, but hey, suits like games too. The most recent addition to their catalog is, of course, Guitar Hero, but they’ve also got games like Leisure Suit Larry: Love For Sail, Surviving Hollywood, Star Wars: Battle Above Coruscant, Caesar, and the upcoming Texas Hold ‘em King 3.

As a gamer myself, I can’t wait to see what they have on offer at WES.

You can pick up the initial 15-track release now, and a subscription for future releases will be available soon.
