Codemasters Ships American Idol
November 19, 2003

Codemasters, a global interactive entertainment software publisher, announced today that the officially licensed American Idol video game, based on the reality television phenomenon, has shipped for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. The American Idol video game lets players create, train and compete as “American Idol” contestants.  Like the television show, players will be critiqued by “American Idol” judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. American Idol for PlayStation®2 has a MSRP of $39.99.  

"Now everyone in the family has a chance to become an “American Idol” right in their own living room," said Steven Lux, Senior Vice President of U.S. Marketing for Codemasters.   “The American Idol video game captures all of the excitement and drama of the show, from auditions to the finals.  Players can perform their favorite songs and even get judged by the celebrity trio, Simon, Paula and Randy.”

American Idol for the PlayStation®2 is a music-based rhythm/action game, providing players the chance to experience the energy and excitement felt by real-life Idol contestants through interactive gameplay.  As a contestant in the American Idol video game, players will have the option to create, style and train their “virtual self” in the hopes of eventually being crowned as the new “American Idol.”  New fashions and styles will also become available as players progress, to help create an even more customized Idol personality.  

With 40 “top ten” music tracks to master, players can perform favorites including “A Moment Like This,” “Oops, I Did It Again,” “Genie In a Bottle,” and “Bye, Bye, Bye.”  Up to 4 friends can play American Idol and secretly vote on each other’s performances in the special Party and Karaoke Modes.  To really mix things up, players can try out their moves by using a Dance Pad to control the gameplay.
