E3 2009 – The Beatles: Rock Band

By Chris Scott Barr

It’s hard to find someone that doesn’t appreciate The Beatles. Many would argue that they are the greatest band of all time, and though I might put Led Zeppelin right there with them, I’d have to agree. These four guys changed the world of music as we know it, and now they’re finally coming to Rock Band.

I was able to score a little face time with some of the Harmonix crew to get a hands-on look at the latest iteration of Rock Band, which is dedicated to The Beatles.

Good News For Rock Band 2 Wii Fans

By Jonathan Kimak

Rock Band 2 for the Wii is just one month away and since I don’t have a 360 but do have a Wii I’m rather excited about the release. Even better is the news from Harmonix, makers of RB2 for the Wii. If you have the Wii guitar from Guitar Hero III you will be pleased to know that it will work with RB2.

And chances are a lot of Wii owners did get Guitar Hero III instead of the original Rock Band that was stripped of many features in its conversion for the Wii. So if you’re a guitar only player you can save some money by just getting the Rock Band 2 game. Or get the whole package and have an extra guitar on hand.

Either way I’m looking forward to the release for the Wii, November 18.
