Cyberbiz Brief

Vivendi Universal Publishing will publish an interactive CD-ROM based on the summer’s biggest TV hit, Fox’s “American Idol.” The title will come with a computer microphone and 20 backing music tracks.

During initial rounds, the player must perfect an act, complete with costume and dance steps, to be voted on by in-game judges. In the final round, the player can record a performance and post it online to be voted on in a national contest. The $30, Windows-compatible title was created by FremantleMedia North Amer-ica and 19TV, and will be released Nov. 1.
