Those eager to live out their dream of joining The Beatles - without the bar room brawls in Berlin or the pleasure/pain of being chased by thousands of screaming girls – will be delighted at the information released regarding The Beatles: Rock Band bundle.
According to an email sent out from Gamestop, the “Limited Edition Premium Bundle” will include the game, a very 1960s-style Höfner Bass controller, Ringo’s trade mark Ludwig drums with classic pearl finish, a metal kick pedal and a vintage replica drumhead – recreated in Rock Band peripheral form and not the real thing, of course – plus a microphone with a stand.
The Beatles: Rock Band is expected to release on September 9, for the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, priced at US$250.
One thing is for sure: Harmonix are really making an effort to make this the most complete and accurate band-specific game of its kind. What do you think? Is this title getting better or are the instruments just a worthless gimmick?
