The Beatles: Rock Band video game, which is scheduled to release on Sept. 9, will include previously unreleased tracks, according to a statement by Dhani Harrison, son of the late George Harrison.

In an interview with Billboard, Dhani Harrison said that the game will include "stuff that has never been heard, never been released," although he said he could not reveal specifics.

He also added that it was he who sold the ideas to the various partners. This is in fact the first foray for The Beatles (as opposed to individual members) into the digital marketplace; Beatles music has never been available via iTunes or any other music etailer site.
"I took the project to Apple (Corps, multimedia corporation founded in January 1968 by The Beatles) and sort of convinced everybody to have a presentation. My job description is ... being enthusiastic. We've been working on it for the past two years. This is the first one that is going to be totally, historically accurate. It's been a real headache, but it's been the most enjoyable work I've done in my life."

It's such a shame that they couldn't have released this game back when some of the Beatles' fans were still alive.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

There may be a few exceptions. :)

I really find it hard to believe that this will meet the expectations they seem to have for sales... Think about how old your average hard-core Beatles fan is nowadays (mid 50's? older?); these are people that were just old enough to have missed becoming videogame addicts in the late 70's and 80's.

Maybe they'll prove me wrong by selling to a lot of grandparents for gifting purposes...

The hardcore Beatles fans I know are all between 20 and 40.   What's age got to do with it?  It's the music that makes them interesting.  Beneath everything they were a tight live rock band at their core and the first to go global without the internet.
