Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction Benefits Doctors Without Borders

September 10, 2009 -

With 84 bids down and seven days of auctioning left as I write this, a limited edition Xbox 360 which celebrates the release of The Beatles Rock Band is selling for $7,400 on Ebay.

The sale of the beautifully customized console will benefit Doctors Without Borders. From the auction listing:

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, along with Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison personally selected the charity as the beneficiary of these proceeds.

Kotaku reports that the charitable auction is the first in a series.

If the console auction is too rich for your blood, purchasing the DLC bonus track All You Need is Love on Xbox Live (about $2) will help out Doctors Without Borders as well. All proceeds go to the charity an purchasers will be entered into a context to win one of the limited edition consoles as well as a
Rickenbacker 325 replica guitar controller.

I am totally bidding on this shit right the hell now.  Plus, the money goes for a good cause.

On an unrelated note, I picked up a Beatles CD last week for the wife.  It was called Beatles Love or some such.  Turns out it was a bunch of shitty remixes done for Cirque De Soleil.  So, I would not suggest that CD to anyone.  Just putting that out there, as the CD was not marked as being a remix CD or anything.

Personally I avoid ANY CD that has "The Beatles" on it. OR "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club"

Um..no..that would be stupid. At $7,400 plus shipping, it better be used for MORE than 'something to put away in a glass case'. At either $7,400 or at it's regular price, doing what you reccomend is a waste of hardware.

No. 1- I'm up there. Reply, please.

No. 2- You really did miss the point.

Re: Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction ...

1. Sorry. Not much I can do about that now, except be more careful.

2. I guess if you can afford $7,400 for an XBOX 360 that you are only going to show off, I guess you can afford a regular XBOX 360 to actually play. An elite version at best.

Anybody putting a bid down on this thing is going to give less a crap about video games than the actual artwork on it. As you put it- if they can spare that much money, they probably already have a console.

Damn straight, especially if you try and send it to microsoft for repair. I doubt you'd get it back. better off ted season 2 episode 3 | paranormal state season 4 episode 2

Also, it's an item from a charity auction.  Those generally aren't meant to be used for their initial intended purpose.

That's not a console.

That's a work of fucking art.

You don't PLAY on that thing- you put it in a glass case and admire it. If you play on it, you're a moron, plain and simple.

Re: Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction ...

Great cause, no real way to spin this story into a "vidja games are the Devil." Although, if I bought it I wouldn't play it. Be too afraid of RROD'ing the thing and ruining its value as a collector's item.

Re: Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction ...

Beatles are bigger than Jesus -> Beatles are evil.

Supporting gaming and the Beatles at the same time? Holy shit. Hell: Handbasket edition.

Re: Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction ...

Damn straight, especially if you try and send it to microsoft for repair. I doubt you'd get it back.

Re: Limited Edition Beatles Rock Band Xbox 360 Auction ...

You KNOW someone there would steal it.  Hell, I'd steal it.

Matthew Wilson@AE I know I was just stating where I stand on issues like that in general04/27/2015 - 8:12pm
Andrew EisenWho, Colin Cowherd? No one's suggesting he should be forced out. Or that he should commentate on video games.04/27/2015 - 8:10pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I do not think he should be forced ou though. he has his right to his opinion and shouldnt be forced out because people disagree with it.04/27/2015 - 8:07pm

MontePerhaps they should just add a donation system for creators like the monthly pateron model. Only those who regularly make quality content can get compensated while those who would abuse the system are ignored04/27/2015 - 7:46pm
MontePaid mods is not a bad idea; i mean its only fair that makers be compensated and even better if they can do it full time. UNfortunatly there is too much that can go wrong and room for abuse04/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Andrew EisenYeah, working on that story now. Or rather, I'm working on finding time to write up that story.04/27/2015 - 7:40pm

Matthew WilsonI do not think it will be the last time we see this. btw I am ok with paid mods.04/27/2015 - 7:10pm

Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm

E. Zachary KnightNot really. I think people are overly critical of other game projects. Delays should be expected and shouldn't be considered a major failing and worthy of the crap they get.04/27/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew WilsonI agree that Double Fine gets off way too easy compared to others.04/27/2015 - 2:40pm
