What's the scoop? Engadget is reporting:

"According to the PR, the game (which apparently lets you do all kinds of awesome Beatles-related rocking) will also premiere with a set of new hardware "modeled after instruments used by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr throughout their career."

Curious.

It's going to be a wonderful summer this year. Er, make that fall, I guess.

I started a thead a couple of months ago asking about potential Ricks in the upcoming Beatles Rock Band game, but it was either deleted or moved. I guess I (sorta) have my answer now.

That thread, unfortunately, got quite nasty, with some serious namecalling.

Mr.Hall,
I'm curious if you were approached at all for this project and had any input of any kind as the info text boasts..

"......a set of new hardware "modeled after instruments used by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison......" "

so obviously Rickenbackers must be in there in a big way.

Just for the record, I may have started the old thread, but I did not participate in the name calling. :)

Here's hoping you guys get the in-game name recognition and representation you deserve.

Should be a hoot - will keep my little ones jumping along while I try my best to chime in with my 360.

The launch date is nearly the one after 909.

Yeah, I found the launch date (09/09/09) to hardly be coincidental. One After 909, "Number 9", John's favorite number...
