Pink Floyd Not Ruling Out Rhythm Games

By Alice O'Connor, Sep 16, 2009 8:40am PDT The BBC reports that Pink Floyd has "has not ruled out working on" a rhythm game though Floyd drummer Nick Mason is none too fond of the genre, Kotaku spotted.

"It irritates me having watched my kids do it - if they spent as much time practising the guitar as learning how to press the buttons they'd be damn good by now," said Mason.

However, asked about The Floyd "working on" a rhythm game on the future, Mason told the BBC "I think we'd consider it," explaining "I think everyone's looking at new ways of selling the music because the business of selling records has almost disappeared."

Pink Floyd's music has yet to feature in either Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Rock legends The Beatles star in a Rock Band of their very own, while Guitar Hero instalments have been dedicated to Aerosmith and Metallica, with Van Halen hitting on December 22.

  • It'd be nice if people who do play the games to be exposed to Pink Floyd, but how will it manage? PF as a whole has been near dead/dead for a long while now. If they wanted new material I highly doubt they'd get anything since most of the members have moved on by now after the huge fallout years ago, plus the death of Wright.

    I wonder how Gilmour (and most importantly Waters) thinks of it?

    (If it did go through, I wonder who they'd include. Would older era songs have the core founders, and post-Syd Gilmour, or just forgo Syd entirely and just keep in Gilmour? Questions questions questions!)
