It looks like the Beatles are coming to top-selling video game “Rock Band.”
The Beatles’ Apple Corps Ltd. and MTV have scheduled a press teleconference tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. ET to announce “an exclusive agreement to develop a global music project.”
Although the announcement does not offer details on the agreement, representatives for the Beatles have been talking to MTV’s “Rock Band” team for months.
If a deal is signed, “Rock Band” will have secured two of the top-selling catalog bands of all time for versions of the game. AC/DC recently became the subject of a “Rock Band Track Pack,” featuring 18 live versions of hits like “Thunderstruck and “Back in Black.” The title, like the band’s new album, “Black Ice,” is a Wal-Mart exclusive.
Both AC/DC and the Beatles remain absent from digital music services,
including the iTunes Music Store, AmazonMP3 and others.
MTV declined to comment.
