Universal Music Group and Tapulous, Inc, have partnered to generate new music games for the iPhone and iPod touch. Yesterday, a special edition of Tap Tap Revenge with pop star Lady Gaga, went live for $4.99 in the Apple App Store.
The partnership will also bring a variety of music-oriented games featuring UMG artists in 2009. Users will be able to purchase top hits from UMG artists to play in the upcoming Tap Tap Revenge 3.0 game. Tracks will be available for $.50 per track, marking one of the first examples of inside application commerce in an iPhone game.
If you are anything like us, we won’t need to hit up Griffin or Avenue to find our late-night kicks. Just playin’ – kind of.
