Rock Band gets Beatles!


According to WSJ.com the Beatles are NOT coming to iTunes but are on the way to Rock Band…sorry Steve.

“The Beatles have licensed songs to MTV Networks’ Rock Band videogame series, according to several people familiar with the matter, a coup for the Viacom Inc. unit in its battle with rival Activision Blizzard Inc. for supremacy in the world of rock-and-roll videogames.

MTV Networks’ Rock Band videogame series is to include songs from the Beatles. From left, the members of the British rock group: John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

“Rock Band 2” Are you ready?!?

“Rock Band” ready to roll out second edition
“Guitar Hero” won’t be the only music videogame to launch its sequel in time for the holidays.

MTV and Harmonix will release “Rock Band 2” in September exclusively for the Xbox 360, and for other consoles before the end of the year

The developers are releasing few details at this time, but what’s known so far is that the game will support all songs downloaded for the game to date and will also support the original game’s instrument controllers. It will also introduce new controllers for drums and guitar and will boast a soundtrack of more than 100 master recordings.

Further details will be revealed at July’s E3 Expo videogame conference in Los Angeles.
