We’ve long been fans of Tris when it started as a fun jailbroken app which brought a (slightly) new dimension to Tetris by relying on touch to move the pieces around. When the App Store launched shortly after the 3G iPhone debut, Tris was ported over to the new 2.0 firmware and available to download and play, that is until a few days ago. The Tetris police apparently caught wind of the app and ordered Apple to take it down. Noah Witherspoon, the college student creator of Tris, reports that he doesn’t have the “time, energy, or resources to fight this battle right now.” So until Noah becomes suddenly rich in time and money, say good bye to Tris.

For a limited time only, EA is offering Command and Conquer: Red Alert for free on its website to promote its upcoming new real-time strategy Red Alert 3. Previously EA had offered Command & Conquer Gold for free so this is the same deal and completely legal. The download links have been up since Sunday but there’s no telling when EA may pull the plug on this awesome freebie. Don’t delay and grab your Soviet and Allied Discs before it’s too late. If you put in a pre-order for Red Alert 3, EA will also throw in Red Alert 2 for free as well! Red Alert has always been known not just for its fun RTS gameplay but also well-done and dramatic cutscenes between campaigns. Red Alert 3 will be no different, featuring the live-action talents of famed actors including Gemma Atkinson, Tim Curry (Hunt for Red October), Andrew Divoff (Lost), Jenny McCarthy (Playmate of the Year), Ivana Milicevic (Casino Royale), Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean), JK Simmons (Spider-Man), Autumn Reeser (The OC), Peter Stormare (Prison Break), and George Takei (Star Trek).

Nintendo Happy – Wii and DS sales = Higher Profit

Even though the US economy is in the pits, that doesn’t mean Japan or Nintendo has to worry. Nintendo has now raised it forecasted profit for the fiscal year by 26 percent, citing exceptionally strong sales of the Wii and DS around the world.

The company expects its net income to jump 59 percent to JPY 410 billion, the equivalent of 3.8 billion USD for the year ending March 31st. Nintendo believes sales of the Wii will grow 42 percent for the year and has reversed previous comments that the DS will see sales drop offs.

“This is a very big, positive surprise,” noted Koichi Takatsuka, a senior fund manager at United Investments. “It looks like Wii and DS are selling well, especially in Europe.”

The news prompted Nintendo’s stock to jump almost 10 percent on the Osaka Securities Exchange.
