The Beatles are coming to Rock Band! March 5, 2009Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Music, Video Games , 1 comment so far
Very into Rock Band and are looking for some new classic songs to jam to? Well, if that’s the case, then today’s your lucky day: MTV Games, Harmonix (joint Rock Band founders) and Apple Corps LTD (copyright owners of the Beatles music; not the iPod company) announced today a whole new game for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii that features the legendary British rockers.
Arriving 9/9/09, it will be available as a stand-alone game for $60, and for $250, as a limited edition Rock Band set including the whole package– game, guitar, drums, mic– entirely designed to look like the instruments used by the Beatles. You can also get just the guitar for $100.
The game will also have 45 of the Beatles hits from 1962 through 1969 playable, though as of right now, not much is known about whether you can download those songs for play on your Rock Band 1 or 2 as well as if you can play other songs in this special Beatles version. We also know that fortunately, the 3 companies also said that the older Rock Band instruments will be able to work with the new game, so those of you who don’t wanna spend the extra $190 for more plastic instruments can just get the game and be all set
So you pumped for this new game? Will this make you hold off on that Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero World Tour purchase and wait a few months to get a game based on one of the greatest bands ever? Sound off in the comments.

Rock Band fans, your long wait for the next version of the popular music game has finally ended. Today, Harmonix and MTV Games released the next version of Rock Band — Rock Band 2 — to the world, and it can be yours for either $59.99 for just the game (for those like me who already have Rock Band 1 and don’t want more instruments lying around ), or $189.99 for the whole package: the game, a new wireless drum, a new wireless guitar, and a mic.
So what you waiting for? Go to your local Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, Walmart or wherever and pick your self some new virtual rock star goodness, and let us know what you think of the new game (or if you’re waiting for Guitar Hero World Tour to come out next month) in the comments.
P.S. Owners of the PS3, PS2, or Wi: don’t be too upset, the Xbox 360 only has exclusitivity of the game for a month. Rock Band will be available for the PS3 on October 19, the Wii on November 16 and the PS2 on November 18.
And current Rock Band owners, feel free to download Stephen Colbert’s new free song (called “Charlene”) for Rock Band 1- it’s interesting to say the least and you can check it out here.

Nintendo at E3 – Surprising to say the least… July 15, 2008Posted by Aidan Galea in : E3, Video Games , 1 comment so far
Nintendo just concluded their press conference at E3, and announced a number of things spanning their DS and Wii range. For the hardcore gaming fans (including myself), the conference is near embarrassing, revealing nothing of true interest such as a new Kirby or Kid Icarus game. However, for Nintendo’s new target audience of “everybody”, the conference certainly showed promise for the future sales of Nintendo products.

Grab your plastic guitars, microphones, drum sets, and anything else you need to rock out, because the folks over at Harmonix and MTV Games has just announced the final track list for Rock Band 2. There is a total of a 84 songs on disc, plus an additional 20 songs available through DLC (downloadable content) for FREE at a later date. Quite frankly, I’m looking forward to rockin out on some Teenage Riot…NOT because this is a Teen blog, but just because the song is awesome.
More after the jump- including the WHOLE list of songs.
