I'm not a gamer, but I almost thought about getting a guitar hero set up when Metallica got their own version of the game (and ditto for Aerosmith). This Beatles one may get me to break down and shell out.

On 09/09/09 they are releasing thier own branded version of Rock Band - see the trailer at thier website. Pretty awesome. A while back, I may have asked if young kids (the main market for video games) would care about this. That was before the film Across The Universe: that movie actually brought the band to the hallowed "next generation" of fans. Every older artist says that their music is reaching a "new generation." Of course, The Beatles are not "most bands," but most of the time that's hype and spin. But with Across The Universe, it really happened.
