Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage, has been turned into a character for the fifth installment of famed video game, 'Guitar Hero.'

“They did a scan of my face then I had to put on this weird suit, it was super-freaky,” says Shirley Manson of her experience with Guitar Hero 5.

Guitar Hero 5 is expected to be released this fall with music from Nirvana, Blur and Coldplay.

Implications - Rock-star game characters are an example of how reality is becoming immortalized in the online community. Cyberspace is becoming increasingly populated with personalities and aspects from the real world, and companies would be wise to consider how to fuse their products with the online world. In doing so, these companies will have an advantage over leading competitors.
