One of the biggest announcements at E3 2009 was the introduction of "Beatles RockBand" from Harmonix and MTV Games. Featuring 45 in-game Beatles songs and the ability to download full Beatles albums, the game seems assured a huge audience.

Here, in a screenshot from the game, we see Beatles Paul McCartney and the late George Harrison singing together.
