    I think they might be listing the full album track list just for informative purposes. Pretty sure the only downloadable bits are the ones that aren't already on disc, like with Doolittle.

    I thought it'd come out 9/29. What's 3 weeks in a lifetime? :D They've said outright twice in press releases that the full album will be in the Abbey Road DLC, as much as that flies in the face of the past.

    No, it said the downloads would be available in The Beatles store.

    Very strange that they posted the full track listings for the album packs, as opposed to just the not-on-disc listings.

    Why isn't "Her Majesty" listed as part of the medley?

    It would be hilarious if it was only playable by itself.

    I agree. I think it's done to prevent spoilers on what the last disc song is.

    Is anyone else not ecstatic that this more or less confirms no "Beatle tax" for DLC? It all seems to be the normal prices to me.

    Abbey Road is the best birthday gift ever. Harmonix usually disappoints with my birthday DLC, but this year is going to make up for all those past years :)

    They're charging the normal price for 30 second - 1 minute songs. It's still more expensive than "normal" Rock Band DLC. On the other hand, if they are sticking to $2/song Sgt Peppers and Rubber Soul should be in line with other DLC.

    I really don't mind the pricing, only because I'm going to buy full albums all around probably, but yeah it seems a bit odd to charge the norm for a 30 second song.

    Well, it's great to see how we'll start having full albums DLC in a perfect timing to me, but Abbey Road is kinda expensive. By the way, I'll download it of course!

    "In addition, purchasers of the full album download....."

    So does that mean that if you only buy the medley, you can't play it through? (ie, if you do not purchase Oh! Darling and Maxwell's Silver Hammer)

    And I would guess that all the songs are listed because A) they just want it to look uniform and have an entire album listed rather than only songs not on the disc, or B) perhaps you ARE buying the songs again and the dreamscape/studio/whatever video is different? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

    awesome news. a month to go thru the whole game before the albums become a monthly thing. i agree with Captendo, perfect timing.

    interesting points there. my guess is they're just assuming anyone who would want the medley wouldn't pay for the 1 min individual songs and just buy the whole thing, but if for some reason u didn't want Oh Darling or Maxwell, it would probably still work if u had all the parts.

    and i would guess A is the reason for listing all the songs, but i HOPE it's B. a consistant dreamscape or venue for the whole album would be quite awesome.

    Please don't turn this in to a debate on whether or not you can play Beatles songs in Rock Band 1/2.

    You.

    Can't.

    Ok?

    I just like that we will be getting the ORIGINAL mix of "Within You, Without You".


    Dear HMX, Help! in January 2010, A Hard Day's Night in February 2010 and Magical Mystery Tour in March 2010, please?

    This info, along with the info for regular Rock Band, makes me so happy.

    Keep up the commitment, Harmonix!

    ^^^ very nice but i think instead of getting magical mystery tour "first" we should go with Revolver or the white album. definitely want Help! and A hard day's night.

    ...Death Magnetic is in the Guitar Hero III file. I'm just pondering until we get the reason why this is happening. No big deal.

    I think it's great. If anyone would have commanded a higher price, it would have been the Beatles, especially with all the extra work needed for masters reprocessing/fixing.

    The fact Rock Band had 50 million downloads or whatever already was probably a good piece of momentum in keeping that $2 price point.

    I certainly hope there will be some singles mixed in for release around the albums. I would hate to have to wait until 2010 (if ever) for Rain, Ballad of John and Yoko, Hey Jude, She Loves You, We Can Work it Out...etc

    This is great. I'm glad we got some info on these.

    But... How is Because going to work? Are we going to have to kick our bandmates out just so vocalists can play it, and then go back and sign everyone back in to play the rest of the album?

    I couldn't imagine downloading the songs from Abbey Road separately instead of purchasing the entire album. And what a great album it is.

    I wonder how much the other two albums are going to cost...

    As of right now, I plan on buying both Abbey Road and Rubber Soul in their entirety. As for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, I'll just have to wait and see how they chart some of the songs lacking main instruments.

    Well, I just felt Magical Mystery Tour would be great for March. Play on the M's. :D

    Personally, I hope they release it like this:

    Jan. - Help!
    Feb. - A Hard Day's Night
    Mar. - Magical Mystery Tour
    Apr. - The Beatles (White Album)
    May - Revolver
    Jun. - With The Beatles
    Jul. - Beatles For Sale
    Aug. - Please Please Me
    Sep. - Let It Be

    Than a Yellow Submarine pack with "Only A Northern Song", "All Together Now" and "It's All Too Much".

    Also, a single or two that comes from the same time as an album.

    Since this first batch is 2/3 later Beatles, the next batch should have more earlier work.
