    No because
    A) Keyboard was not made until after RB2 and TBRB was in production after RB1
    B) It would be really bad and half-assed because everything would of been rushed
    C) And if they delayed TBRB until 2010 it would of lost many sales and popularity because it would If been released after all the GH Spin Offs, LRB and GDRB.

    It would have been cool sure, but we can would of, should of, could of, all day.

    I would pay a premium to have the The Beatles tracks updated for keys and made exportable to RB3 but everyone knows I am a crazy dreamer.

    ....but your not the only one. (oh wait, that's not The Beatles....just John.)

    I would love to have the Beatles keys parts. When I first got the game, I was thinking how awesome it would be to have the keys parts to play....

    Perhaps the best decision was they should have waited until they finished RB3 until they released TB:RB.

    But they would have lost their big ticket item, Harmonies.

    Well, what's more important to you in the long run -- TB:RB having introduced Harmonies, or TB: RB also having keyboard and Pro Modes just like RB3? :confused:

    I would have waited another year just to have rb3 instruments on the Beatles rock band. Thats why i hope apple will give in and we can gets some dlc packs or export with added fee of rb3 abilities. Chances are really slim.

    I'd live without it, but one of the reasons the game sold as many copies as it did was becuase of harmonies. Taking that out would lose lots of money, making it harder for more DLC than it already is.

    No, TB:RB would still have harmonies, but they, too, would've been introduced in RB3 instead.

    I never said they would'nt have it, but it wouldn't be as big a deal and TB:RB wouldn't have anything new carrying it forward, losing lots of sales.

    The release date of TB:RB coincided with the re-release of their remastered albums, and was chosen to reference Revolution 9. Basically, there was a TON of Beatles hype that the game rode to move copies. Had it come out near RB3, it wouldn't have sold even half as much as it did despite the Beatles' popularity and the Pro modes it would have.

    I would've loved this because I'm a piano player and I love The Beatles, I know how to play their songs by heart so i would been able to play this game with a keyboard easily.

    Would you pay for a new version of TB:RB that has Keyboard and Pro mode?

    Sadly, if they did that, then there would have ended up several songs unplayable on some instruments, particularly on keyboard, since most of their early stuff doesn't use any keys.

    But that's true for any band. BTW, "Rock'n roll music" has some pretty frenetic keyboard playing. Would be fun to use your elbow on that one! :)
