MTV Creating Beatles Video Game10/31/2008 08:00:00 PM Eastern
MTV, which owns video game publisher Harmonix, creators of last year's hit Rock Band, inked a deal with Apple Corps Ltd. to produce a Beatles music video game. It is expected to be ready in time for next year's holiday season.
The new game will be a standalone, focused on the music of the Beatles. Much as in Rock Band, players will be jamming along with the music—which will span their entire career—on instrument peripherals. The deal marks the first time that Beatles music has been available outside of traditional delivery formats.
