When the Beatles Rock Band video game hit stores last month there was high hopes it would boost game sales. The game was thought to be one of the few titles with universal appeal that can appeal to different generations. However, the sales for the game turned out to be not so fab says Arts Beat.
Though it was promoted here, there and everywhere, a video game featuring the music and the likenesses of the Beatles posted only moderate sales in its first month of release. The Beatles: Rock Band, which was released by MTV Games and Electronic Arts, sold about 595,000 copies, according to a report from NPD Group, a market research company.The game did turn up twice in a list of September's top selling games. There is still a chance the holidays could give sales of the game a boost.
