Default Beatles Video Game

This intrigues me.

The Beatles Take Video Game Plunge

October 30, 2008 , 11:00 AM ET

Antony Bruno, Denver
Music from the Beatles is coming to videogames ... but not to "Rock Band."

MTV Networks and Harmonix -- the game developer behind the popular "Rock Band" franchise -- together with the Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd., are developing an entirely new interactive music game based solely and exclusively on the entire Beatles catalog.

The game, which does not yet have a title or release date, will not be part of the "Rock Band" franchise, but will be based on the same platform. Since the project is still in early development, all parties were stingy on details during a conference call this morning (Oct. 30). But here's what is known so far:

-- The game is designed to take users on an "experiential journey" through the Beatles' career, music and vision. It will also include new types of interactive gameplay associated with the Beatles' imagery in addition to its music. Surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, are involved in the vision and creative direction.

-- The music will come from master recordings of the Beatles' U.K. releases, but will not be remixed or remastered. Giles Martin, the son of original Beatles producer George Martin and co-producer of the Beatles' "LOVE" project, will serve as music producer.


-- A fourth-quarter 2009 release is in the cards.

There are numerous details still unconfirmed. Neither MTV or Apple Corps would comment on whether Beatles content will be available for the "Rock Band" franchise as downloadable content at any point, and Apple Corps CEO Jeff Jones said the announcement was in no way meant as a precursor to the Beatles' catalog arriving at digital music services.

It's also unclear whether the new game will be compatible with any existing "Rock Band" game peripherals -- such as the plastic guitar and drums controllers -- or if new custom instruments can be expected.

Both MTV/Harmonix and rival Activision, which publishes the competing "Guitar Hero" franchise, have actively courted the Beatles for some time in an attempt to score content from high-profile artists. Jones cited the fact that MTV/Harmonix was the first to introduce a full-band interactive music game as a significant factor in the decision, as well as MTV's long history of working with artists.

Little is known about the deal structure. Neither company would characterize the terms in any specific way, but hinted that all involved essentially "owned" a piece of the project, suggesting it is not a typical licensing deal. "Nothing is typical about the Beatles," Jones said

COOL. very cool, but i'd prefer it if it wasn't one of those Rock band typed of games.

Either way, I'd pick it up for sure.

"Rock Band" is wicked fancy .... playing the Beatles wouldn't be that fun though. Can't do my David Lee Roth air kick to "She Loves You".

I imagine you'd need a full set of teeth and not be married to someone from your own gene pool to fully understand the importance of The Beatles.

I'll say this. Most any of the "new" Beatles releases and projects have been amazing IMO. I'm talking about the anthologies and Love in particular (the film re-issues have been cool too). Absolutely brilliant actually - so really if everything they put out is of the same calibre - then fantastic. I'll buy it, and i'll appreciate it.
