"The Beatles: Rock Band" revealed 15 new songs today, bringing the announced track list to 25 for the game, which is set to launch on September 9, MTV.com reports.
The Beatles: Rock Band allows users to experience The Beatles’ legendary career, from early touring days in 1963 Liverpool to the final performance on the Apple Corps rooftop.
Retailer Amazon.com in July opened a new The Beatles: Rock Band division to allow consumers to pre-order the game and peripherals for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3, Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360, and Nintendo Co.'s Wii, Punch Jump reports.
Rock Band has always been about playing with friends, but until now there was no good way for multiple people to sing at once. With The Beatles: Rock Band several players can shred their vocals together, singing both the melody and harmonies like the Beatles. And don't worry if you're completely ignorant about what the hell a harmony is or how to do it, as the game includes a really simple but effective tool for teaching you about pitch and harmonization. This trainer will take you through Beatles songs - even specific ones that you're having trouble with - and will help even strong singers practice their pitch, Gamespy.com reports.
Fans will also find rare bits of Fab ephemera otherwise unavailable on the albums embedded in the game. According to a spokesman for MTV Games/Harmonix, McCartney personally did some unofficial fact-checking for the game, making small adjustments in the chronology, Rolling Stone reports.
