Viva Las Vegas 50th Anniversary Premium Digibook In his highest grossing movie, Elvis shares the screen with Ann-Margret, easily creating the most electrifying teaming Elvis had on screen. He plays Lucky Jackson, a Grand Prix race driver working at a casino to raise cash for a new engine; she’s a hotel swimming instructor - and the romantic action revs up from their first meeting. George Sidney, who also directed Ann-Margret in Bye Bye Birdie, combines the hormonal heat wave with fascinating sights of ’60s Las Vegas. David Winters (West Side Story) choreographed the 10 musical song-and-dance scenes which also featured his dancers. Songs include the high-roller title track, the stars’ duet on “The Lady Loves Me,” her sultry “Appreciation” and The King’s version of Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say.” The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 stereo.

Konami announces pre-launch campaign for PES Manager
Thousands of Europeans screamed in joy. Check out the official details for the pre-launch PES Manager campaign.
El Segundo, CA – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today a pre-launch campaign for a new mobile gaming app called “PES MANAGER”. PES MANAGER will be available in English for both iOS and Android in 55 countries worldwide at a date to be announced in the near future. The pre-launch campaign offers players a chance to receive a “Player Badge” that they can use to gain an early competitive advantage once the game launches. The pre-launch campaign started worldwide from April 16.
PES MANAGER is the global version of the “World Soccer Collection S” game app, the highest selling soccer game app in Japan1. The game is a full-scale soccer/football game application, featuring realistic matches presented in 3D, more than 1,500 star player badges with real player pictures from various EU leagues, and intuitive and easy controls.
1 As of April 7, 2014
Pre-launch Campaign The pre-launch campaign is designed to help players receive a competitive advantage by offering one player’s badge as a starter pack prior to the game’s launch. Campaign participants will receive their starter player badge through a shootout challenge which can be performed up to three times in one 24 hour period. After seeing the player badge that has been unlocked following the shootout challenge, participants can either choose to keep the badge or try again. If the participant is still not satisfied with the badge they receive, they can unlock another shootout session by sharing the pre-launch campaign information via social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and/or LINE. Sharing on social media sites will allow participants a maximum of up to 12 attempts per day, and the participants can try for the player badge of their choice until the day the game officially launches.
About PES MANAGER Game Flow The game starts by the mobile app user acquiring player badges. The badges are then combined for a single team, which is managed by the app user. App users arrange the badges in their desired formation and work to level up the player badges through training. Teams are then taken to stage battles, cup battles or league battles, where there are additional rewards, such as unlocking new player badges, for app users to acquire.
Real matches presented in 3D While designed for mobile platforms, PES MANAGER displays matches in a realistic 3D format. This allows the app users to enjoy the matches their unique teams play similar to watching a real game. In addition, players can change who is on the field, formations and other instructions while matches are happening in real-time.
More than 1,500 player badges with real pictures The badges representing the athletes in the game are comprised of real pictures of the world’s soccer players, such as Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Beñat Etxebarria, Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos. The badges also feature the athlete’s unique play style with the skill sets that have been assigned. Special skills can be activated at certain points during matches and the abilities are represented through featured movements. The base player badges can be combined with partner training badges to improve personal and team skills throughout the season, further enhancing the strength of your team.
Intuitive and easy controls Whether during a match or when managing badges or other team information off the field, the game offers intuitive controls that make gameplay operation simple. The game also features a unique system of acquiring new badges using a special “Prize Draw” system. There are two ways to receive new player badges: 1) “Normal Prize Draw” and 2) “Premium Prize Draw”. “Normal Prize Draws” are acquired as a reward for clearing stages or are drawn using friend points. “Premium Prize Draws” are drawn one time using five (5) “Energy Balls”. Energy Balls are obtained by paying for them, as a reward for stage battles or as a gift from game administration.

2 Thumbs way down
Unfortunately...this game is virtually unplayable online with "real people". If you are lucky enough and the stars align just right you may get into a private lobby with your friends but 9 out of 10 times...the game will freeze under caution or just for the hell of it. The developers of this game need to consult with the folks who made EA sports NASCAR Games (09) to be precise.... what happen to the ol days of running a Truck race or Nationwide race....and not deal with a glitching POS which is all there is now. As a true die hard NASCAR fan and gamer, I think there should be better technology in the year 2014...unfortunately these last 3 NASCAR games have taken giant steps in the backwards direction when it comes to online racing...which is what I'm sure 90% of the people who buy this game are trying to do... Play it ONLINE...its sad that it takes several patches and fixes to accomplish this.... 2 Thumbs WAY down
