U2: We, too, want to be in our own music game


Last year, U2 was apparently all set to add their virtual likenesses to Rock Band in some way, but the band decided against it. However, now that The Beatles have done it and people are playing their game on the morning talk shows, everything has changed.

"We definitely would like to be in there, but we felt some of the compromises weren't what we wanted," Adam Clayton told USA Today. "That could change. I love the idea that that's where people are getting music, and we'd love to be in that world."

Evidently the representation of the band was the issue the first time. "What The Beatles have done, where the animation is much more representative of them, is what we're interested in, rather than the one-size-fits-all animation. We didn't want to be caricatured." Fans looking forward to singing "Lemon" in an unlockable Mr. MacPhisto costume should be glad it's The Beatles: Rock Band the group saw, and not Guitar Hero 5.
