Beatles_RockBandEven in the unlikely event you’re not interested in the game itself, the cinematic for The Beatles: Rock Band is well worth watching – here it is (pictured, too).

Amidst all the hoopla, there was one thing in the announcement at Microsoft‘s E3 press conference today that I don’t think got enough press. “All You Need Is Love” will be released on 9/9/09 – simultaneously with the game – exclusively as a downloadable song through Xbox Live, with all Apple Corps Ltd, MTV Games and Microsoft proceeds benefiting Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières. Wondering about that careful wording of donors, by the way? I counted more than a dozen corporate logos representing the companies who have a legal and financial stake in this game.
