The new Beatles: Rock Band game launched earlier today at the E3 expo in Los Angeles — with both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr there to lend a hand. The highlight of the unveiling? When ten of the 45 songs that will be featured on the game were revealed — including “I Saw Her Standing There,” “I Am the Walrus,” “Get Back,” “Taxman,” “Octopus’s Garden,” and “Day Tripper,” among others. It was also announced that “All You Need Is Love” will be released exclusively as a download on XBox, with profits to benefit Doctors Without Borders.
You can find out more details about the game, which comes out September 9, at thebeatlesrockband.com, and to whet your appetite for its new release, you can check out the Fab Four performing that last little ditty below. But will you be getting blisters on your fingers come September 9? What musical outfits do you think should get the solo Rock Band treatment next? And do you think they put “Octopus’s Garden” on the game just to keep Ringo happy?
