FT.com also confirms Beatles in Rock Band


FT.com revisits a story it's been following all along: the inclusion of The Beatles library in one of the two reigning rhythm game kings. The winner, of course, is MTV's Rock Band. Though already confirmed last night by the Wall Street Journal, the official announcement isn't until 10am Joystiq Time, so we're offering you this as a second verification.

Beyond the basics – The Beatles haven't licensed their music digitally anywhere else; Activision made its own pitch for the content and while the FT piece doesn't offer much new, it does reflect the scale of these music licensing negotiations. That MTV acquisition sure makes a lot more sense now, eh? We'll bring you more around 10am.
