Last month marked a milestone for the Beatles, as the band allowed its music to be digitally distributed for the first time with the Abbey Road downloadable content for The Beatles: Rock Band. It turns out the wait for the band's second wave of digital distribution will be much shorter.
Harmonix and MTV Games today announced that the eight tracks from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band that weren't included on the game disc will be downloadable on the Xbox 360 and Wii starting November 17, with PlayStation 3 players able to get the songs on November 19.
Among the soon-to-be-released tracks are hits like "A Day in the Life" and "When I'm Sixty-Four." Unlike the Abbey Road downloadable content, all eight of the new songs will be available for download a la carte for $1.99 (MSP 160). PS3 and 360 players can also purchase them together as part of a bundle for $13.49 (MSP 1,080).
