‘The Beatles: Rock Band’ at E3

Gaming Xbox 360

E3 Media and Business Summit (formerly known as Electronic Entertainment Expo)The two surviving Beatles took the stage Monday at Microsoft’s Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference today in Los Angeles to promote The Beatles: Rock Band, coming Sept. 9 for the Xbox 360. According to The Associated Press, players will be able to follow — and perform as — members of the legendary music group, beginning with their early days in 1963 Liverpool through their final rooftop performance.

Unlike the previous Rock Band, the Beatles edition will feature three-part vocal harmonies.

Forty-five Beatles songs will be available on the game’s disc when “The Beatles: Rock Band” is released, including “I Am The Walrus,” “Back In The U.S.S.R.,” “Here Comes The Sun,” “Get Back,” and “I Feel Fine.” Microsoft said “All You Need Is Love” will be released for download on the Xbox 360, with proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.
