YOU HAVE FAILED TO DESTROY DOWNLOADING. GAME OVER.

What's perhaps the most puzzling thing about the report of a Metallica computer game is that Lars Ulrich chooses the same point to sniff dismisively about the possibility of there being a greatest hits album - as if the thought of doing that would be somehow worse than letting yourself be pixelated and zapped into the heads of game-players.

Mind you, at least its a shreweder adaptation of new technology than their Napster war: this week, Nielsen announced mens spending on computer games overtook their spending on music in the US; and a quarter of gamers are over 40, so that's right in the Metallica market. (Music now is third bloke purchase each month, behind video games and DVDs)

Thanks to MightyPie for the link (which they sent me ages ago...)
