Sound Off: A Beatles Video Game?

No, it's not going to be another Rock Band game, though it may not be too far off. MTV Networks is teaming with Harmonix and the Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd. to develop a video game "based solely and exclusively on the entire Beatles catalog." Billboard has more details:

The game is designed to take users on an "experiential journey" through the Beatles' career, music and vision. It will also include new types of interactive gameplay associated with the Beatles' imagery in addition to its music. Surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, are involved in the vision and creative direction.

The music will come from master recordings of the Beatles' U.K. releases, but will not be remixed or remastered.

Apple Corps CEO Jeff Jones went on to emphasize that this announcement "was in no way meant as a precursor to the Beatles' catalog arriving at digital music services."

What do you think of this news? Many of you found it blasphemous when there was Beatles night on American Idol — should the video game industry also just leave them alone? Or is a video game just a video game, no big deal?

If you think the Beatles' music sounds like circus music, then you never heard either.

I've never liked the Beatles, they make sounds that belong under the big top--circus music. I think the concept stinks.

I'm torn - I love/worship The Beatles, so I usually like anything involving them, but I do hate when stupid people butcher their songs...

I don't know that it's blasphemous, but it sounds incredibly boring.
