All I want in life’s a little bit of love to take the pain away...
Well it looks like someone in the UK has finally decided that they might need to get the Rock Band name noticed amongst the general population prior to The Beatles E3 announcment.
Have seen the 'Let There Be Rock' RB2 ad 3 or 4 times over the last couple of days on one of out terrestrial channels, which is a bit unsual for a game that has been out since November last year.
Can only guess that they want people over hear to at least heard of Rock Band before they start the big push for the Beatles game.

GameSpot have put up their E3 Live Show schedule. Click to Tuesday, The Beatles: Rock Band will be demoed at 2pm PT. The very first game to be shown after the big 3 conferences. I've no doubt it'll open or at least appear at Microsoft's E3 conference on Monday but this should be the first time we'll get a decent glimpse at the game in action with an interview with a Harmonix representative.
Lego Rock Band will be shown at 11am on Thursday.

OK Computer please
No too late! I guess I'll have to wait until my dinner break to what is revealed.
I honestly don't know why the export thing is such a big deal.
You would still have to actually buy the game, so what does it matter? If you're really that obsessed with moving the songs over from their own disc into Rock Band 2 just so you don't have to switch out discs, then perhaps you don't really want the game that bad to begin with? I mean what are you going to do, play the songs through 3 or 4 times, say "ok, cool," and be done with it? All just because you were able to import them into Rock Band 2? What other purpose will it serve? I'm just curious.
I really hope there is a reason beyond just being able to use one disc to play all your songs instead of 2. Because that's pretty OCD if that's all it is. There's got to be something in connection with playing online, or something.
But... not having it import/export friendly in any way MIGHT be the only way they could agree to the licensing of the songs. The surviving Beatles don't want their likenesses playing Visions. Apple or whoever holds the rights don't want the songs in another game for some reason (ummm they don't want Penelope McQueen singing Hey Jude?) (remember you still can't get The Beatles on iTunes even, getting ANY sort of video game Beatles is a huge step!). And because it's The Beatles and a really exciting looking new game different enough from RB I can put up with that. Not that we know either way for absolute certain yet no matter how many quotes from interviews people post.
In conclusion: platform compatability good, The Beatles good, innovation good.

Will import/export have any impact on whether I buy the game? Uhh, no.
Would I like to have the ability play Beatles songs along with all my other DLC, etc? Hell yeah. I'd even pay extra (a lot) to do so.
What I would like to see happen? Everything (RB1, RB2, TB:RB, Lego, all DLC, etc) exportable to RB3 with all the new features and such. THAT would rule, and would be something that GH could never match.
What's going to happen? Dont know, and nobody on this board knows either. So we'll have to wait...
