The Beatles RockBand

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, September 3, 2009

If you grew up listening to The Beatles... your new favorite video game is here. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. If you thought you were too old to have been caught up in the RockBand, Guitar Hero video game craze....think again... (sound) Harmonix and MTV are out with The Beatles Rockband...for the Wii, the XBox 360 and the Playstation 3. Project leader Josh Randall says if you know how to play Rockband instruments...great. If you don't...it will still be fun...

"You know we did a ton of testing here with all sorts of different age groups to make sure that the game was accessible for everyone. If you don't want to play the instruments, you can just sing along. I can now sing that vocal harmony thing. I showed the game to my mom, just like a video of it and she instantly started singing all the songs."


If you have Rockband or Guitar Hero instruments...the game sells for about 60 dollars. A premium bundle...with Beatles replica instruments...is about 250. You can find the full interview and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
