Pink Floyd Interested In A Music Game

Veteran British rockers Pink Floyd have told the BBC that, were the offer to come up to create a Rock Band/Guitar game based on the band, they'd definitely "consider it".

It's an unusually positive outlook from an old-timey rock band, who call the games "interesting new developments", particularly since so many other ageing acts—Aerosmith excluded—are so down on the genre.

But don't think it has as much to do with video gaming as it does music sales, with Floyd's Nick Mason saying "I think we'd consider it. I think everyone's looking at new ways of selling the music because the business of selling records has almost disappeared."

"I'm of the old guard who are really sad about that, because I always liked the concept of the album—rather than just cherry-picking tracks—and also the business of the art work that went with it."

    Well dudes! Sign yourself on for a 'Guitar Hero:Pink Floyd'!! I would love to see them get immortalized on Guitar Hero. The lack of David G's guitar skills is severe on our Guitar Heros.

    I'd play this, oh my yes I would.

    I vote we let the people who did RB:Beatles do it, cause the backgrounds in that were trippy as hell, and PF should be even more so.

    All in all it's just another Guitar hero game on the shelf.

    Hopefully if this does come about, it will be a Guitar Hero game and not Rock Band.
    Either way, this would be the very first Guitar Hero game I would actually be excited about to get on day one, and no9t after it drops to GH: Aerosmith prices.
