Dexter: From TV Series to Videogame
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last years, Dexter is still a cartoon character that has a sister called Dee Dee.
But if you pay attention to TV Series and are well informed on the latest shows that became a hit, Dexter is actually a criminal by night, and crime analyst during the day.
And if you’re a gamer and love Dexter, you’ll be glad to know that a videogame is being made based on the series. To please almost everyone, it will be available for different gaming systems, such as PlayStation 3 from Sony, Xbox 360 by Microsoft, and most likely to computers too.
The Dexter game is being developed by Marc Ecko Entertainment, and as difficult as it might be, they are trying to make it pretty similar to the series, or in other words, follow the same “story”.
Nokia launches online music store in Germany
The biggest cellphone player in the world – Nokia – has invested in the market of selling music on the internet, by opening an online store in Germany.
To be honest, I’ve never heard of Nokia selling songs online, maybe because this is only their second store getting live attention, with the first one being virtually located in Britain – launched last year, on November. Maybe it will become more popular in the upcoming months, thanks to the plans to launch the same project in other countries, such as Spain, Italy, Australia, and others.
The only problem is the price of each song – 1 euro – which equals approximately to $1,52. A bit high when comparing to other stores.
Is Nokia trying to compete with iTunes? Or Amazon? It can’t be with Wal-Mart…
