Def Jam Rapstar gets release date, price, seven new songs

Konami has revealed that its hip-hop music game Def Jam Rapstar will drop on October 5, coming bundled with a microphone and selling for $70 on the PS3 and Xbox 360, with the Wii version costing $60. Additionally, seven new songs and two freestyle tracks have been announced for the game.

With EA and Activision likely dropping their next music games this fall, Konami is looking to provide an alternative to rock with Def Jam Rapstar when it releases on October 5 in the U.S (the game will hit Australian stores the month after). The game, which has currently only been announced as part of a microphone bundle release, will have over 40 tracks for hip-hop fans to test their mettle with. With today's reveal of seven new songs and two exclusively-produced freestyle tracks, we are now aware of just under 20. The full list is below, with new additions in bold:

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
