The much ballyhooed Beatles edition of the Rock Band video game will hit stores September 9th, so kids, start saving your lunch money.

The magical mystery game will be available on the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. Rock Band developers Harmonix and MTV Games are promising hardware for the game modeled around instruments the Beatles themselves used. We hope that means there’s a Wii sitar in development.

On April 4th, surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will be on hand to play a New York City benefit for the David Lynch Foundaton. However, the current plan is for them to perform separately. Unless, that is, they “come together.”

We’ll keep you posted.
