A Harmonix/MTV Games spokesperson gave us the real info: it isn't SingStar, it's a The Beatles: Rock Band microphone bundle -- and even that is in the realm of hypotheticals. The spokesperson told us that the companies "have been working very closely with all of our partners to create various retail promotional opportunities in Europe to support the existing installed base of existing music video game hardware with potential offerings such as "The Beatles Microphone Bundles."
Someone must have heard discussion about a pack that was like SingStar: Beatles, and mistakenly believed it was SingStar: Beatles. The full statement is after the break.
"MTV Games and Harmonix have the exclusive rights to create music games based on The Beatles per our exclusive partnership with Apple Corps Ltd. Contrary to the rumored reports, there is no Singstar: Beatles software product. There is only 'The Beatles: Rock Band' hitting shelves worldwide on 9/9/09 on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii in which players can play as a singing game or as a full band game.
With that in mind, we have been working very closely with all of our partners to create various retail promotional opportunities in Europe to support the existing installed base of existing music video game hardware with potential offerings such as 'The Beatles Microphone Bundles.' This follows on our industry leading stance on music game peripheral compatibility as we are always working to ensure cross compatibility across all Rock Band instrument controllers, as well as most Guitar Hero(r) and other authorized third-party music video game peripherals and microphones."
