MacBox, the developer of PhoneSaber, has given word that they've had to pull the app from iTunes after a request from THQ wireless. The chat: friendly. The news: THQ has the rights to Star Wars IP on mobiles. The result: MacBox had to pull the app.

That's the bad news. Here's the awesome news. THQ is going to work with MacBox to make PhoneSaber not only official, but better with actual 'canon' sound effects. MacBox is hoping the app will remain free, perhaps in a promotional capacity for the actual THQ game, The Force Unleashed.
