Default Rock Band gets Beatles license

http://chud.com/articles/articles/16...ION/Page1.html

Now the question is, how do they release the songs? Full albums? Disc only ala AC/DC?

I was wondering if anyone would ever get the Beatles. Good news. There are going to be tons of songs to get!

I have to admit it. The Harmonix fanboy in me is glad that they got it and Neversoft didn't. At least this way, there's no chance of overcharting the notes just for the sake of difficulty. The Beatles is supposed to be fun, not l33t hardc0re.

He did at one time, or at least a bulk of it...Considering he couldn't afford the mortgage of his home, or to pay off his lawyers - I'm sure he probably had to part ways with the catalog...Much to Bubbles dismay.

Actually I believe the way it went was that both Activision and MTV/Viacom admitted they were in negotiations with Apple Corps for rights to the Beatles. But once Paul McCartney put his song "Wings" on Guitar Hero most people assumed that the Beatles would now go over to the Guitar Hero franchise.

Still, this looks legit. There's even an article on the Wallstreet Journal about it now.

IIRC he sold them back to Apple a few years ago
