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.

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.
CONAN9845;1671496 said:I believe they are trying to distinguish it from the AC/DC pack. Pulling the sentences apart grammatically, and trying to get anything from that process, is silly. The fact is that we don't know ANYTHING yet beyond what they have said. There is no reason to believe ANYTHING that forum members are extrapolating from these announcements. They'll tell us when they are ready.
Sayburr;1778471 said:About The Beatles as Playable Charaters:The game will also incorporate elements of their career, but neither MTV nor Apple Corps. would comment on whether or not Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, or John Lennon would be playable.

I mean, if you're going to blow it out and make it a whole new game, you need to have the Fab Four playing and singing their respective parts (with maybe some fudging on the tracks where individual Beatles recorded multiple instruments).

Sayburr;1781515 said:Yeah, except for Revolution #9.... Speaking of Revolution, I hope its the single and not the album version. I like the hard rocking single version better.
i_c_weiner;1832144 said:They better have harmony as a feature on the game. Every time I play a Nirvana song on Rock Band I notice Dave Grohl's harmonies and note how important they are to the songs. If they sound that important to me on a "lowly alternative rock song" (I personally do not prescribe to this belief and feel that Nirvana has some very Beatlesque elements to them, especially with harmonies), I wonder how they could go as far as to do a full Beatles game without using harmonies. I would love for A Day in the Life to feature the ability to have two singers.
