Guitar Hero: "The British Invasion II"
Posted: Wednesday March 19th, 2008 by

A month after Activision announced that Aerosmith would get a Guitar Hero sequel dedicated to their music, Martin Bandier, Chairman and CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, said he liked the idea a version of Guitar Hero dedicated to the Beatles. He added, "It's something we have talked about and something I'd like to pursue". Sony/ATV Music Publishing holds the copyrights to John Lennon-Paul McCartney's legendary music.

Unfortunately Bandier's hopes for Guitar Hero: Beatles does not mean the game will come to pass. Activision would likely have to shell out a heck of a lot of money. I have little doubt that investment would be recouped in unit sales. Hell, I'd buy two copies for when I wore the first one out.

Now, not to muddy the issue here, but honestly, I'd rather see the Beatles come to Rockband. Or maybe come to both. It's quite possible that Bandier, like so many other people, is using the term Guitar Hero in a more general sense, referring to the genre rather than a specific game. **shrugs** I dunno. Ultimately Across the Universe has whetted my appetite for Beatles music all over again. And I'll take what I could get, Guitar Hero, Rockband, whichever.
