Information about a keyboard being included in the "Rock Band 3" package was teased in the "Green Day: Rock Band" demo. We have now been given some exclusive information by our now-famous Mole about what we can expect from "Rock Band 3."
John, Paul, George and Ringo are getting the band back together, in a manner of speaking, with a new Beatles-themed video game and digital upgrade of the group's entire catalog both released Wednesday.
The video game "The Beatles: Rock Band" is set to be released by Harmonix on Wednesday. Modeled on the already popular "Rock Band" game, and closely supervised by The Beatles and their estates, the game lets players sing and strum along to a huge list of Beatles classics over scenes ranging from Liverpool's Cavern Club to their final performance on a London rooftop.
