Here's a deal that'll let all you Beatles fans out there live out the dream of performing on stage as one of the fab four, even if it is only hitting a few multi-coloured notes or badly belting out lyrics using the microphone. Unfortunately, Powerplay Direct have sold out of copies on the Xbox, so all you Wii and PS3 owners should probably get yourselves onto their website before they run out of stock on the other consoles as well.
You can grab hold of the game on either the Wii, 360, or PS3 for £8.99 from Powerplay Direct, which'll save you exactly £3 on the next best offer on the PS3 versions, and almost £4.50 on the Wii.

The single player takes on a slight twist, instead of forging out your own music career you get to follow the iconic band's legendary career as they grow from humble roots to become one of the biggest music phenomenons in the world. The set list is littered with classic Beatles track including 'Day Tripper', 'Paperback Writer', and 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'.
Most people should be familiar with the music game format by now, but if you've never played one before the aim of the game is to hit the coloured notes as they descend down the screen, or follow the lyrics as they scroll from one side of the monitor to the other. As always you'll get the choice of playing guitar, bass, drums, or wailing on vocals, and in this instalment instead of choosing a generic rocker you'll take on the image of one member of the band if you so wish.
Now the game's under £10 it's definitely worth checking out and at the very least it'll add a few more track to your Rock Band repertoire.
