The Beatles Rock Band… and how I sold my soul to Apple Corps, MTV Games and a long list of other corporate conglomerates

Two of my favourite things in the world together at last! However, not impressed with the idea really… A little apprehensive. You can’t blame me for feeling conflicted.

I’m coming around after reading about it here but I still don’t know how to feel… Sounds like it could be cool… Three part harmonies… ok.

Oh, and there’s a trailer right here.

And I just watched it and I do believe I’m sold. Like really sold. My heart is beating faster in my chest in fact as I mark the release date of September 9th on my calendar. What a journey that was this morning, but you’ve got me hook, line, and sinker. That progression that you saw there should be a case study in marketing. So much money to be made from suckers like me.

    Oh my gosh! Cool post. I’m gushing here… I love the Beatles! Interesting to see them on a video game – a little weird to see them all computerized though. But I did love them in Yellow Submarine in their 2D world. Why not 3D?
    BTW – did I tell you I was born the same day as John Lennon?

    I’m so looking forward to this too. I was disappointed to hear that the songs can’t be imported into the original Rock Band 2, but whatevs, there are enough good Beatles songs for a whole game.

    I just hope I don’t get sick of playing the songs over and over then not like them any more, but since I’ve listened to every Beatles albums about four hundred billion times, that probably won’t happen.

    Me too! I can rock out a ‘We Can Work It Out’ like nobody’s business.
