The US group agreed to be used in the game Band Hero, but have now accused manufacturers Activision of failing to stick to their agreement. They have filed a lawsuit for breach of contract because they agreed to allow three No Doubt songs to be used on the game, but have now found that characters perform over 60 tracks by different bands. And the makers have even used lead singer Gwen Stefanis character to sing in a male voice for songs such as Marvin Gayes I Heard It Through The Grapevine. Court documents filed in LA state: The Character Manipulation Feature results in an unauthorised performance by the Gwen Stefani avatar in a male voice choir boasting about having sex with prostitutes. They are seeking unspecified damages and an injunction preventing the games distribution. by GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN Carrot and joystick: a Wii in action to get lads disaffected with PE back into enjoying exercise. We start them off with two lessons and then reduce it to one, which they only get if they take part in outdoor lessons. It has been great seeing boys enjoying exercise again -- even if it is through a non-traditional medium. Some of the games are quite demanding. Teachers at the school for 11- to 18-year-olds claim it helps pupils become active and develops social interaction skills with others by taking part in team sports. While initially using the Wii for tennis, bowling and baseball, pupils are later introduced to Wii Fit to experiment with more demanding balance, muscle, yoga and aerobic exercises. Other boys can join in by plac- ing mats alongside the users and taking part in the exercises. Staff plan to build on this method by buying Mario and Sonics Olympic game, Wii Fitness Coach and Wii Sports Resort.
