Harmonix and Apple Corps have revealed a September 9th Western release date for The Beatles: Rock Band, with multiple SKUs, including a limited-edition $250 instrument bundle. The music game, which the creators are calling "an unprecedented, experiential progression through and celebration of the music and artistry of The Beatles", will simultaneously debut in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and "other territories" on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii this September. While no specific songs have yet been announced, the companies did confirm that The Beatles: Rock Band, originally announced last October, will offer a limited edition instrument bundle, modeled after instruments used by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr throughout their career. This will cost $250 in the U.S., with a guitar-specific bundle priced at $100 and a game-only bundle costing $60. The game will be compatible with all Rock Band instrument controllers and "other current music-based video game peripherals." Finally, the creators announced that "exclusive content created by Apple Corps, MTV Games and Harmonix will be made available to fans over the next few months who participate in a pre-order campaign through major retailers." Though not specific, this announcement appears to hint at digitally downloaded Beatles-related song packs for existing Rock Band players who have pre-ordered the game.
