    Apple Corps, Harmonix and MTV Games have set a September 9 release date for their highly-anticipated videogame, The Beatles: Rock Band. The first playable, fully-endorsed Beatles title will be available for Xbox, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii on the same day, offering to take "players on a journey through the legacy and evolution of the band's legendary career." Beyond that, a limited number of special controllers will be available, as modeled after the guitars, basses and drums the legendary band once used.

    While the Rock Band series offers full albums from certain artists, their Beatles spin-off is the first to feature one specific group. As such, it'll be presented in three price points: the basic game itself for $59.99, standalone Beatles guitars for $99.99, and a limited edition premium bundle that'll include the game and a combination of instruments for $249.99.

    The Beatles: Rock Band was confirmed in October of last year after many months of speculation as to what videogame publisher might be able to reel in the rock icons. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison have all given their blessing to the project.
