The Beatles, Rockband


Meet the Beatles, again.

The lads from Liverpool—John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr—are going all out to court a new audience, releasing spruced up versions of all the quartet's albums as well as letting fans sit in on some of the best gigs ever.

Tuesday, Sept. 9, marks the release of the Fab Four catalog in remastered stereo and mono versions, as well as the launch of The Beatles Rock Band.

Whether you're interested or indifferent to the differences between the stereo or mono versions—we'll leave that discussion to others—the fact is that these are the first time the band's catalog have been given an upgrade in more than 20 years, so it's a welcome improvement (if potentially expensive one).

Created with the help of the surviving members, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, The Beatles Rock Band offers gamers the chance to jam on 45 of the best bunch of songs ever—though there are omissions to quibble about—as well as lots of added elements like actual studio chatter from the band and previously unseen photos of the lads.
