The Beatles‘ back catalogue could be made into tracks for the computer game, ‘Guitar Hero’, according to reports by the Financial Times.

Discussions about between representatives of the Liverpool legends and Activision, the company which publishes the Guitar Hero computer games, have been taking place about the possibility of a Beatles version of the game.

MTV Games, meanwhile, whom the Fab Four’s representatives are also talking to, are responsible for the similar Rock Band games.

Financial experts at the FT agree a deal between the parties could be agreed “within weeks”.

Any such deal would have to be approved by EMI and Apple Corps, who own the master recordings of the band’s work and manage their business interests respectively.
