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).

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.

wickedbadz;1864385 said:I really don't care what name they tag on the disc or what they claim, I've listened to the Beatles alot and I just don't see any fun in playing them on Rockband. Whens the last time you heard a Beatles song with some serious shredding going on? This disc if you ask me will be a waste of cash. It just goes to show how desperate Michael Jackson who owns the rights to the Beatles music really is for cash and Harmonix bit the hook cause Activision probably wouldn't.

SonicRocker15X;1832669 said:Being totally honest (I feel someone's going to stab me for this), I never really listened to The Beatles. I mean, I've heard some of their music, but never actually really listened to them. This is just like every band I currently love that I found in a music game, I feel the exact same thing is gonna happen here.Regardless, though I'm not as psyched as others (my girlfriend definitely included), I'm still pretty psyched, exportable or not.And it definitely looks like Harmonix is doing a better job than Neversoft did with Aerosmith... "Steal GH3's engine, change the songs, and add Aerosmith characters" failed, IMO.
