Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr stopped by Microsoft’s E3 Press Briefing this morning to make a special announcement regarding Beatles Rock Band.
We already knew Beatles Rock Band would be released on September 9, 2009 (09-09-09) but the dynamic duo confirmed the date for good measure.
Their reason for showing up at Microsoft’s press conference versus Sony or Nintendo’s was to announce an Xbox 360 exclusive for Beatles Rock Band.
At launch and for an undetermined period of time, “All You Need is Love” will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 version of Beatles Rock Band and be available to purchase via Xbox Live Marketplace. All proceeds from the track’s sale will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian organization that provides to relief to the innocent victims of war.
The first Beatles Rock Band screens and videos are expected to arrive this week and I’ll be sure to pass them along as soon as I have them, along with any other potential Beatles Rock Band exclusives that may, or may not, be unveiled by Sony and Nintendo.
