Wait, is THAT why Spielberg was there?

What’s all this about Microsoft looking to upgrade the 360 to use no controllers at all?  AND recognize face and voices?

That’s just madness.

I guess all it takes to get the remaining Beatles together is a video game release.  Who knew it was so easy.  From Variety:

This photo was taken just seconds before Ringo ate several children who were hanging outside the LittleBigPlanet booth.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are coming together to promote the upcoming “The Beatles: Rock Band” video game.

The two surviving Beatles, along with Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, appeared at Microsoft Corp.’s presentation Monday at the E3 video game conference in Los Angeles.

In the game, fans will be able to follow the band’s career beginning with their early days in 1963 Liverpool through their final rooftop performance.

Forty-five Beatles songs will be available on the game disc. Another, “All You Need Is Love,” meanwhile, will be released on the Xbox 360 for download, with proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.

Don’t take my saracsm to mean I’m not very excited for this release, because I’m already marking time off the calendar so I can lock myself away with this game for a little while.
