edited September 2011 in The Beatles: Rock Band
Last year I posted this thread to try and get as many people playing TB:RB on the birthday of its release, and I believe it was a mild success. So I would like to do it again. :)

So, to quote myself from last year...

It will also show to HMX that there is still plenty of positive interest in this game by the community.

So message your friends lists, whatever the console, whatever the instrument....

And in the end, the love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

Lets make it full of love on this joyous day!
And let them know that HMX may have something TB:RB related to make it that little bit extra special on this birthday...

We are thinking about what we could do as a small thank you to the community that remains so invested in TB:RB. We've talked about looking into showing off early production art, sharing stories from team members that met with Paul, Ringo, Yoko, etc, posting photos from our trips to Abbey Road, something along those lines. There's a lot of background work that went into making the game and if the community is interested in hearing more about the process we'd love to look into sharing it.
You say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you. :D

we will have an awesome item to giveaway to one lucky TB:RB fan tomorrow and I've been curating photos from our trip to Abbey Road Studios, shots of the launch day thank you present Apples organized and I'll make sure I'm available to share some stories and answer questions about working on the game. 9/9 is a great anniversary and it means a lot to see so many people excited for it!

    It's awesome to see you guys planning an event around this! Can't wait to see discussion tomorrow.

    Just to level set expectations, we had tried to pull together more behind the scenes stuff for the anniversary, photos or art or stories, as quoted in the OP, but we weren't able to pull things together in time. We need to get approvals from all the stakeholders before sharing that stuff, and I'm sure you've heard us say in describing our previous dealings, things can sometimes be glacially paced. Throw in the launch of VidRhythm today and upcoming Dance Central 2 launch and it just wasn't in the cards.

    That said, we will have an awesome item to giveaway to one lucky TB:RB fan tomorrow and I've been curating photos from our trip to Abbey Road Studios, shots of the launch day thank you present Apples organized and I'll make sure I'm available to share some stories and answer questions about working on the game. 9/9 is a great anniversary and it means a lot to see so many people excited for it!

    Happy anniversary! Too bad that I can't access xbox live so I can't join with online multiplayer:(. But I'm gonna give it a try to work the problems out right now.

    And to hmxhenry, great that you guys gives TB:RB attention today and thank you for blessing the world with the greatest game ever:D.

    Getting on the game now. Too bad there aren't a lot of Wii players around...

    This game has brought me so much closer to other people from the forums and I would like to thank HMX and The Beatles for everything!

    TBH, I do not think any of us were expecting anything huge. Some stories and maybe a few pics at tops. The fact you have put together a small competition is fantastic, even if I cannot enter it due to location ;)

    This has just reminded me about another TB:RB item. Not sure if you can answer this, IIRC the 360 T-Shirt was only for USA? Any chance of opening up that avatar item for the rest of the world now? Would be nice to own :)

    Oh I'll be on in about an hour or so, and some tonight. I need some help getting the full-band trophies, the sixty seconds of Beatlemania, and gold stars on "I Feel Fine". I swear that song gives me more problems...

    I'll try and get on tonight for a while. All DLC.

    Also, if you still like to play this game a lot (and RB3 too) add me on XBox, my gamertag is Aims2Misbehave. Never have a band to run with, and open to playing any instrument (expert level guitar/bass, mostly expert drums, hard vocals)

    I should probably add that it will only be bass/guitar for me today, no room to set up my drums and I can't sing to save my life.

    I might boot up TB:RB tonight too - it's been a long time since I've played it. Will probably just play local though since I don't actually have much DLC for the Beatles disc (lots of RB3 DLC, just not much Beatles DLC).

    I'll be on for the next few hours swapping instruments. GT below.
