PALL ALTO, CA (Hypebot) –Fan priced download site AmieStreet has taken a page from the fantasy football play book and create a Fantasy Record Label game via a new Facebook app now in beta.
"Use your new favorite AmieStreet tracks to build a Fantasy Record Label. The better your 5-song Fantasy Record Label performs, the more money you'll earn for mp3 downloads from AmieStreet.com. Try to get the highest score as you compete against your friends, and even see how you stack up against all of Facebook. Every song has a score that rises and falls depending on its popularity…"
I test drove it yesterday and found it fast to setup easy and fun to use; although I was disappointed that I could only choose five tracks. The game aspect also solved another problem I've felt with AmieStreet – making it worth my while to wade through the hundreds of crappy tracks to find the rare gems. Also, having my Facebook friends serve as filters has real potential.
