Here comes the American Idol merchandise. Joining the DVD and other show-related stuff, like books and forthcoming CDs, is a video game. Vivendi Universal will release American Idol: The Search for a Superstar on Nov. 5. “[P]layers will be able to create their own male or female contestants, selecting both hairstyles and clothing to suit their own tastes.” The game includes “a microphone and [will] feature more than 20 tunes on which would-be stars can record their own vocal tracks.” There will also be virtual judges, although the “criticism [will be] a bit less harsh than it was on TV.”
