Play Rock Band with the Beatles -- Soon!

In case you ever dreamed of backing up John Lennon and Paul McCartney:

According to Rolling Stone, MTV, Harmonix and the Beatles’ Apple Corps, Ltd.. announced that they will partner to create a video game for Rock Band, based on the music of the Beatles, to be released in 2009.

The game will take the player on a musical journey of the Beatles music, from Please, Please Me to Abbey Road. It is the first time that
Beatles music has been presented in an interactive, video game format.

It is not clear at this point whether Beatles content would be available for Rock Band or whether the game would feature avatars of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
