What if we told you that the legendary band The Beatles will soon be gracing your preferred consoles via the franchise Guitar Hero? Nothing is set in stone yet but the company which owns the copyrights to Beatles music said that they want a game dedicated to the band. More on this after the jump!
Activision recently revealed that the band Aerosmith will be the first one to be featured on a dedicated Guitar Hero video game title. This particular iteration will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and the PlayStation 2.
Quite interestingly, Martin N. Bandier commented that he liked the idea of having a Guitar Hero game focused solely on the Beatles. In case you don’t know the guy, he is the top executive at the music publishing company that owns the John Lennon and Paul McCartney copyrights.
The said company is actually ATV Music Publishing LLC and is one of the largest in the world. It worth mentioning, however, that ATV Music is currently in partnership with Sony Corporation of America’s music publishing business.
“It’s something we have talked about and something I’d like to pursue,” added Bandier. As of this writing, Activision have yet to comment if the deal will push through or not. But we believe that a lot of gamers will be feeling like floating in strawberry fields forever if this pushes through.
