I want to get this game so bad, but I do not own a 360 or PS3. I own a PS2. I hate not having been into video games like most people.

I want that.

I read that in BusinessWeek last month, and I absolutely love it.

Unfortunately not. The PS3 uses bluray discs for it's games, while the PS2 uses standard DVDs configured/encoded specifically for the PS2 - as bluray needs a special drive, and is relatively new technology, the PS2 cannot play these discs (this is also why the PS3 costs so much when compared to a PS2 - just like how a bluray movie player costs so much compared to a DVD player). Plus the PS3's hardware is over 100 times more powerful then that of the PS2 (true fact, not just pulled out of nowhere, haha) - basically, the PS2 is not capable of the high definition graphics that all PS3 games have, and it's processor is nowhere near as powerful (the PS3 has an 8-core processor; to give you an idea of how powerful that is, most computers these days only have a 2-core processor). Finally, the controllers used for this game are wireless and, as a result, the game will not be programmed for the wired controllers that are necessary for the PS2.

Sorry :(

I wonder what Ringo's drums are going to look like. So far, looking at the other three instruments, I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Doesn't Rock Band's track packs and games have only about 30 songs? If so, I wonder which songs will be on the game.

The original Rock Band came with a total of 58 tracks, and Rock Band 2 had 82, which is really quite impressive. Overall, there are 600 tracks available for the games including those included on the discs as well as those that are available as downloadable content.

In comparison, I've read that there's rumours that The Beatles: Rock Band will have 45 master tracks. However, there could definitely be 10/20 extra ones that can be 'unlocked' as you progress. Oh well, I guess we'll definitely find out after E3 in a few weeks...

The PS3 is different than a PS2 because the PS3 has blu ray and bigger memory.
The PS3 won't work for PS2.
I should know, I have a PS2 too.
Hope this helps you.

I want this game so bad, but I might have to buy a brand new game console for it.

There are going to be just 45 songs on the game - anyone know which ones? (apart from the 09 on the trailer?)
