Which Beatles songs are set to be featured in Rock Band and when is currently unclear, but hopefully we'll have more details by the end of the day.
MTV will want to put the license to use as soon as possible, so we wouldn't be surprised to see downloadable Beatles tracks for Rock Band 2 this side of Christmas.
It's a major coup for MTV, which has fought with Activision to secure exclusive rights to use music by major bands such as Aerosmith, Metallica and AC/DC in its games.
Music and dance titles accounted for over $1.2 billion in US sales alone during 2007, according to market researcher DFC Intelligence, while the genre is now said to be the second most popular behind only action games.
Expect music game sales to rocket even higher following the UK releases of Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour next month.http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=200624
