Now The Beatles video gameMarch 15th, 2009 - 10:08 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 15 (IANS) The late Beatle George Harrison’s son Dhani has managed to convince the surviving band members of the legendary group to agree on a new project, which is “The Beatles: Rock band” video game.
Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have been reluctant to allow their music to be used for commercial endeavours, but were won over by a mock-up Harrison Jr. put together using his father’s solo music, contactmusic.com reported.
McCartney, Starr and John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono gave the concept a thumbs up and Dhani has landed a job helping to develop the game alongside Giles Martin, the son of the band’s long time producer Sir George Martin.
The game will hit the stores globally in September this year and will be available for video game consoles Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii respectively.
It will come with a limited number of instruments that are modelled after guitars, basses and drums used by Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr.
