Pixilated Beatles Coming Soon

Posted By on Wed, Apr 8, 2009 at 9:31 AM


Hot on the heels of yesterday's news about the Beatles' entire catalogue being remastered, it was just announced that the Fab Four are also making their videogame debut.

On September 9 (the same day the remastered CDs are coming out), EA will publish The Beatles: Rock Band for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and Wii.

I can't imagine this being as fun as Metllica's new Guitar Hero outing — what would you rather rock out to? "Master of Puppets" or "I Want to Hold Your Hand" — but it'll probably be tons of fun. Ringo's stickwork on "The End" kills!

Coming tomorrow (we're guessing): The Beatles finally give in and let iTunes sell their music — for 30 percent more than what you'd pay for a Bow Wow song. —Michael Gallucci
