    Why not? I don't play video games but I'm sure those that do would love to have Elvis guitar hero in their collection.

    I also do not think Elvis has the mass market for a video game, let's face it, somehow Beatles have better reached a younger people market than Elvis, and older people are not buying videogames. To release an ALL Elvis video game like the Beatles one, might just plain flop.

    To include Elvis in a 50's/60's rock and roll inspired version of Guitar Hero would fit just right.

    No, it isn't childish

    Since his death Elvis' estate are always copying ideas the Beatles are coming out with first.
    Whether it be the Cirque shows, #1 hits CD, talks of Anthology etc.
    The people managing the Beatles image and music come out with these great ideas and then EPE and Sony copy it for Elvis after they have already had tremendous success with it.
    If Elvis came out with a Guitar Hero it would just be to copy the Beatles again since they recently came out with it and I don't like that i'd love it if EPE or Sony came up with these ideas first.

    I remember when Robert Sillerman came on the scene everybody was saying what a great thing this was because he's got these brand new creative ideas well, what an overhyped joke that turned out to be.

    I'm basically saying Elvis should be doing his own thing instead of just copying the Beatles over and over again.
    He probably would be if the people over at Sony and EPE had any brains but hey look on the bright side at least we get Elvis impersonator contests.

    You know I can't think of any others besides the Beatles either and guess what
    If Elvis came out with a Guitar Hero game it would be entirely devoted to him just like the Beatles.

    except we would get Elvis songs in the game instead

    How original.

    As I said above, Metallica & Aerosmith have their full own versions of Guitar Hero, I should know, I bought them for my daughter

    There are always going to be somebody who will trail blaze an opportunity, you obviously feel quite strongly about the Beatles, I see no shame in following a format if it works!

    I agree that EPE and Sillerman could do more

    Does EPE always have to rip off things the Beatles are always doing first though?

    I feel Elvis would gain nothing by following this trend.

    I'm sorry if I don't know very much about video games

    That Is the point, its not about how good or not is to follow a trend if its working, but that EPE/SONY/Sillyman, are basically doing less than that.

    If its not for FTD Records, Presley catalog would be long time buried for the fans, and we'll be doing nothing but waiting to see when they decide to follow up someone else steps.

    Because Bradley i'm giving my views on whether or not EPE should come up with a video game for Elvis.

    I don't have to know a lot about video games for that.

    This does actually raise an interesting point..... if the people in charge of the beatles "stuff" are forward-thinking enough to include them in more up-to-date projects like video games etc...and EPE seem content to go along with what they think Elvis fans want...the fridge magnets,ETAs,knitted table napkins or whatever....then the future doesn`t look too bright does it?

    True is, people managing the beatles interests, have been clever enough to place, and with good results, beatle interest in younger people. Now, of course they got a market in young people (under 25), and video games will prove to be a hit for them.

    Elvis market, although it is true that there are plenty of younger fans, still depends A LOT in older people (around their 40's) and the original fans that are still around, and they keep feeding their profits on them, without doing much to reach newer generations. Today, this video game thing, Elvis does not have a big market on the generations interested in video games. A probable reason of why Elvis hasn't showed up on this rock band or guitar hero series.

    I voted yes on this thread, but it have to be done very carefully, which songs will be there? another greatest hits compilation for the game? that is what most likely will happen, and I'm sorry but that simply will not do (Wooden Heart, She's Not You won't do for this) for the younger people, and Elvis will be second to many.

    It is of vital importance that they reach deeper into Elvis catalogue, (something that rarely has been done for mainstream compilations) to find real up tempo, hard rocking numbers, to cover all periods in Elvis life. And I stick to this: the game should have something new and interesting in itself, Elvis is not such a big attraction on its own for the younger generations, but if the game its interesting enough on itself, the you'll get a nice way to reach a newer generation.

    Now remember that the Bealtes video game came along with the remastering of their record catalogue.

    Elvis catalogue outside FTD has always been and it is now a terrible mess, to find a way to finally solve that comes first. Or else what, a video game to push some new greatest hit/christmas/gospel CD? or send the new people interested in Elvis to buy Elvis sings Burning Love and Hits from his Movies Vol 2 NOW ON CD!!! sure... how exiting. And once again you will disappoint people offering the ackwards material, and leaving the good stuff buried.

    In that way the recent From Elvis in Memphis CD was good step, now what is next for the rest of Elvis catalogue? How we gonna get the good stuff before the crap to the newer or potential fans?

    I wouldn't be surprised if EPE comes out with a game like that.

    Bradley's statement was most ridiculous.

    I don't have to have vast knowledge of video games to know that Elvis' estate shouldn't keep copying the Beatles, and if they came out with a Rock legend video game for Elvis on the heels of one about the Beatles that's exactly what they'd be doing.

    The Beatles show the way and then a light bulb goes off in the heads of the people at EPE.

    In your opinion, thankfully there are other opinions too

    The people who manage the Beatles catalogue have copied other bands, that has already been established above. There is interest in the Beatles product so I guess when the millions roll in I don't think they will be bothered if they copied or not. It's ridiculous to say we shouldn't make a Rock Bad or Guitar Hero because it copies the Beatles. If EPE did market research and there was enough demand (which I doubt) they wouldn't care about copying either.

    The above statement is incorrect, Metallica, Aerosmith and Green Day have led the way, followed by the Beatles.
