'Rock Band' Book The Beatles
The Beatles music may still not be available for sale on iTunes but soon many will be able to experience them in their own room and live the dream of being part of the fab four.
The game "Rock Band" has announced a special gig. They are to produce a special edition of the game staring the perhaps greatest rock group of all time: The Beatles. The game will be made for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and will debut on 9th September, along with accompanying instruments for sale that have been modeled after the ones used by the band.
MTV Games said ‘As we moved through the creative process, it just seemed to make sense to clearly highlight the association between The Beatles game and the critically acclaimed "Rock Band" franchise’. The association continues with Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin, developing the game.
