Today Show - Rock Band: Beatles
Karl, Lisa and Richard got into character as EA geared up to release The Beatles: Rock Band game. Almost 47 years since their formation, the quintessential rock and roll band – and arguably the greatest of all time – still has a huge influence of the world of music.
EA announced the game at E3 at the beginning of June where Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison and Yoko One turned up to push the game. And, as you will see from the clip, it looks like it could be a lot of fun. Gamers basically become the Fab Four and follow their career from the early days in the Cavern Club in Liverpool, through to the super-stardom that soon followed.
There are 45 songs available at the moment (and I'm sure they will be more added, although EA hasn't made any announcement), where you can sing along and play at the same time.
For diehard fans, there is also a Hofner Bass guitar and Ludwig branded drums, which will set you back $369.99. The game itself will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 for $89.99, and for the Wii at $79.99.
