Beatles: Rock Band is hitting retail on September 9, and everyone is excited. That even includes Wii owners who should be getting the game day-and-date with the release on other competing consoles, unlike Rock Band 1 and Rock Band 2.
OK, so what's the catch? In yesterday's announcement, MTV Games stated that the standalone version of the Beatles: Rock Band disc would cost $59.99. Even though most Wii games are priced at $49.99 or lower on Nintendo's popular console, 1UP has confirmed with MTV Games that the $59.99 pricing is indeed correct.
Pacific Crest Securities analyst Evan Wilson tells 1UP he doesn't think $60 will become the standard, and states that MTV Games likely thinks "the market will bear a higher price due to the attractiveness of the content."
