Ok, so a bit of searching and checking later and here’s the scoop:
Information Week reports that The Beatles will be working with the CREATORS of Rock Band to put thier music in a new videogame.
Wired.com reports that the group met with both the creators of Rock Band AND the creators of Guitar Hero to look in to putting their music in to a game.
Now given that the Fab Four don’t like to share thier music digitally (go ahead, try to finid them on iTunes, I DARE you) and have been fairly protective of thier licencing this is MAJOR. Hopefully this is just the breaking of the dam and Beatles music will be more readily available to the younger generations.
Besides, who doesn’t want to rock out to I am the Walrus or Helter Skelter. Or if you’re a fan of the earlier works, I Wanna Hold Your Hand.
