February 11, 2009 - Did Paul McCartney just pull back the curtain on the upcoming Beatles music game under development by Rock Band impresarios Harmonix? In the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly, the legendary musician revealed that the Beatles game will follow the exploits of the Fab Four over their storied careers.
According to McCartney, "It will feature different periods of the band -- you get early days, Liverpool, then psychedelic, and on from there. It's very cool. And I like the idea that the game introduces kids to music, you know?"
Sounds like the former Beatle is pretty hip to videogames as a means of introducing music to new audiences (although, not all gamers are kids, Sir McCartney). So, it sounds like the Beatles game will drift from the clean-cut days of "Help!" and "A Hard Day's Night" into the more experimental sounds of "Sgt. Pepper" and "Yellow Submarine." Will the game feature stages set in such important locations as Abbey Road Studios the rooftop of the Apple building? Quick, somebody ask McCartney before a Harmonix publicist gets a hold of him.
