seinman;3341720 said:Did you even bother to read what you pasted? They said future DLC is not dependent on sales of the CDs. Compact Discs. It says absolutely nothing about future DLCs being dependent (or not) on past DLC sales.
mva5580;3341796 said:Did you bother to work on your reading comprehension skills? So the person said "CD's" instead of "DLC albums." Big freaking difference. If you REALLY read that as meaning that future Beatles: Rock Band DLC was dependent on how well the remastered CD's sold, you've got bigger problems than I'm capable of dealing with.

Diego81;3343155 said:I have a feeling that even within HMX there are confused about future DLC.Steve Marinucci (who I trust to be a very believable source, I've followed his Beatles News Site for years) first reported this when someone told him to ask directly: "I also saw your comment regarding my question about the story regarding the Beatles DLC depending on album sales. I asked that question directly and the direct answer was no, that story was not true."So obviously someone at HMX told him that, I don't think he would make it up.Then he updated the story with this:Update: We're told that the "All You Need is Love" exclusivity is not tied to "Magical Mystery Tour" album and that no plans to release any future albums beyond "Sgt Pepper" and "Rubber Soul" have been made.So I think HMX is going back and forth with this issue.
