So, given the first week sales of The Beatles Rock Band, I think there is a possibility of HMX creating a sequel for the game.
The game is on pace to outsell Rock Band 2, or at least come close, and the strong Wii sales indicate that the older/casual set have bought into the game completely.
Many of these players will not have the ability, know how, or want to go online to download new songs. Therefore Harmonix is going to want to capitalize on these players by releasing the DLC on disc. They could, and might, do that via a Beatles Track Pack, which would be a great idea. They could feasibly sell each album seperately for about the same price as the DLC, perhaps a price point of $19.99.
However, as we all know, many of the BEST songs from The Beatles career is still missing, even AFTER the release of the three announced DLC albums. Hey Jude, Help, Penny Lane, all these songs will STILL be missing from the catalogue.
Harmonix has been tight lipped on their DLC plans after this year for the game. While surely they might not want to announce too much in order to capitalize on sales now (some people won't download one album if their favorite is coming 6 months from now), they would be silly NOT to release at least the majority of the major releases.
So, what does that mean? Well, we either get a TON of DLC, which would seem a good possibility, OR we see a second release; The Beatles 2.
They could release another large portion of the career, including the songs that were passed over the first time. They could even create new instruments, although that seems unlikely.
So it might seem like a pipe dream, but what do YOU guys think?
