    I just had my copy of this delivered through the door (a day early thank you play.com), it looks pretty good - i've just got to get used to the rock band style drums (with my GH:WT kit)

    Has anybody else got it yet?

    Kind of surprised I didn't get it yet, my wife usually gets the RB games for me to play before they come out.
    RB2 had a neat little message at the bottom of the main screen saying -Ooooh, all the "regular" people have to wait until {date of release}.
    Not sure but I think it also asked about being a pirated disc. Just kind of funny.

    I just can't get into the Beatles. I appreciate thier music and respect what they have done. It's just my baby sitter as a kid always listened to them. The atmosphere in her house always made me nauseous, because of that I get a bit of nausea when I hear Beatles songs.

    If I could import the songs into RB2 I would give it a shot.

    Probably pick this up tomorrow after work.

    Really need to get RB2 sometime on the cheap. I've got so much DLC and am getting kind of sick of playing Tokyo all the time.

    I'll pick mine up on the way home from work tomorrow. Also grabbing the new remasted CD box set tomorrow. I love the Beatles.

    Anyone attending the midnight launch?

    Will only buy if I can be Yoko and push a button that causes the other players to have to argue and do drugs.

    The Beatles are my all time favorite band.
    I don't buy games too often as the only game I have purchased so far this year was SF4.
    This is a definate buy for me!

    Did anyone buy the premium bundle? I'd love to see pics of that set up in someones house. Not too interested in the Beatles but I may pick it up later on down the road if the price drops. I should be getting Rock Band 2 today so that'll keep me entertained for a while.

    Crap in a hat! I forgot today was the 9th, Damn it.

    I really wanted to get the free songs from the Gamestop Pre-order.

    Did anybody get it from there? What extra songs do you get?

    Huge pass for me. Just don't care for the Beatles at all. Maybe down the road I'll pick it up when it hits the $20 bargain bin.

    Guitar Hero 5 is looking better and better though.

    Got it today. Played to Shea Stadium and plan to finish it after dinner. Its amazing to say the least. Glad they finally managed to get these songs out in RB.

    For red Frenzy:

    I got the DL code and it lead me to a site where could select 3 songs from both and Abbey Road and SGT. Pepper's assorment of music. I pick Because, Lovely Rita, and something I cant remember right now. They also had stuff like Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Day in the Life. Only bad deal is that you dont get the rememption codes till OCT 20.

    Pass. I can barely stand doing 2 or 3 songs from the same band in a row. Don't know if I could handle an entire game of just one band.

    (NO, I didn't get Guitar Hero Metallica either)
