Beatlemaniacs can be a downright crazy bunch, but they had better also have some extra cash tucked away if they want the full experience for The Beatles: Rock Band .
According to Joystiq, MTV Games and Harmonix have revealed that two standalone guitars will release alongside the upcoming music title: the Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet, "allegedly" played by John Lennon and George Harrison through the course of their illustrious careers, will be up for sale in September at $100 apiece. And if you're wondering – and we know you are – we'll do the mathematical figuring for you: the full bundle for the game will retail for $250 and if you want both of these unique guitars as well, your total bill will sit at $450. Of course, Mariana Agathoklis of MTV Games said these optional instruments "are really for the hardcore fans," and we're not about to argue with that assessment. And hey, if you want to join the pre-order club , feel free to do so; it's something else that's designed to cater to the hardcore Beatles followers. The good news is that with a game like this, you're guaranteed to tap into plenty of avid die-hard followers, which means the cost of admission probably won't seem so crazy. After all, you're talking about a group of people that might spend hundreds of dollars for an original record for their collection.
We have no idea where this Rock Band train will end but at this point, just about any legendary band could get their very own music video game. The Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises are just too huge to ignore.
