tidu;1667804 said:I am really excited about this. If it was just an extra pack like AC/DC I wouldn't buy it, but it looks like it's gonna be a single player campaign that goes through the Beatles career, hopefully with cinematics and everything. Awesomeness
Sayburr;1535380 said:Yeah, including the Past Masters CDs the entire catalogue includes 214 songs (source Wiki, 188 songs if you get rid of the covers. I doubt we will see a 200 song release... 45 songs, however, seems very low concidering that is less than both RB1 and RB2. Guess that depends on how much multimedia will be included on the disc... Since it will be a multiplatform release, the game size will be restricted by the size of a DVD... I guess time will tell since they are still in the early stages of programing.

Electric_Zen;1668745 said:They reported on an NPR show that Giles Martin, who will be doing the sound on this game, is also hard at work on the long-awaited remasters for The White Album and Sgt. Peppers. These album releases are scheduled for... next year, around when the Beatles game will be released.So, all signs are that tracks from these albums that show up on the game will be new remasters produced by Giles Martin.
Droosies;1670970 said:This is just pure speculation on my part, but here's what I'm thinking could happen based on me reading "in between the lines" on the facts.1.) The Beatles will have the game released in AC/DC Track Pack style Dec. 2009. By AC/DC-style I mean the songs will be able to be exported. I am basing this on: "This is not just a Rock Band expansion pack, it is much much more than that."2.) The Beatles will not have any DLC on Rock Band apart from this game, just like AC/DC, but they will have a song released through Rock Band 3. I am basing this on "Reuters notes rather matter-of-factly that "none of the Fab Four's songs will be available for download on the existing Rock Band franchise."" Since Rock Band 3 does not exist at the moment, this would techincally be correct. So that's just me trying to find loopholes in the logic that would get the Beatles music along with the rest of my 500+ songs on Rock Band.
Sayburr;1668387 said:There is no mention anywhere, but I would love to have a venue set up for the rooftop concert... I have a bootleg of that concert and think it would be very cool if the first official release of that material were on this new Harmonix game...
mugs;1671122 said:The fact is, this is not a Rock Band product. While the Rock Band instruments will be supported in the Beatles game. This is not a Rock Band product. The Beatles songs will only be playable in the Beatles game. I am also just another speculator. But knowing that Viacom/MTV/Harmonix have already spent millions just to get the Beatles to agree to have their music in their own title... I am sure that the Beatles would also demand more money for their music to be "importable" into other "Rock Band" titles. Key Point:This is not a Rock Band title.
Sayburr;1671429 said:I personally believe you are incorrect. I don't see Harmonix making a brand new game out of the Beatles tapes and then letting the songs transfer to Rock Band. They have said many times that this Beatles Project will not be part of the Rock Band platform.If the Beatles game is not part of the Rock Band platform then the songs will not transfer over, simple as that.
