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.

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

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.

Andrew EisenWow. The Hyrule Warriors DLC is more extensive than I thought. The new scenario in the first pack is a full five levels and the new Adventure Map is a whole new map, all 128 squares. Yowza!09/30/2014 - 11:08am
Andrew EisenI'm most pleased that the Quick Start Menu will now launch when the Wii U is powered on from the TV Gamepad TV Remote. I felt that was a huge oversight and I'm glad it's been corrected.09/30/2014 - 11:06am
MaskedPixelanteHey look, Nintendo figured out folders on the Wii U. I mean, yeah, they figured out folders on the 3DS several years ago, but these are BETTER! These... uhh... actually display the full folder name on the home screen instead of just the first letter...09/30/2014 - 9:19am

TechnogeekDid someone say "actual knowledge ruins the news"? http://jalopnik.com/how-much-can-cnn-get-wrong-about-f1-engines-physics-in-111142340509/30/2014 - 8:47am
NeenekoHeh. PoliSci tends to ruin the news. Kinda like how being a gamer tends to ruin mainstream game stories, any actual knowledge in a field highlights how poorly it is reported.09/30/2014 - 8:30am
MechaTama31Heh. I don't think you need a master's in politics to see that... ;)09/30/2014 - 7:32am
Matthew WilsonTrust me i read the same sites.I have a Master's in Applied Politics. I get to see through the spin both Left and Right that tend to be put on news stories.09/30/2014 - 1:02am
WymorenceI also have an extremely hard time in listening to people who froth at the mouth when the POTUS does something almost identical to the previous POTUS, but for some reason is subhuman for it this time around09/30/2014 - 12:43am
WymorenceThe problem is that opposing views are a good thing, but sites like Brietbart and their ilk are the exact opposite. 9/10 times they tweak the news to benefit their own views instead of just giving their own side of it.09/30/2014 - 12:41am
james_fudgeIf I were in a cult I might try and shut myself away from opposing views...09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeoh and Nate Silver and Politico too.09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeI read a lot of sites every day, Drudge, Breitbart, Huffpo, DailKOS, Red State, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and i'm not infected. Time for people to get thicker skins.09/29/2014 - 11:46pm
james_fudgeNeo_DrKefka: you do know you visited "one of those sites" when you posted that article, right?09/29/2014 - 11:44pm

Matthew WilsonI agree. the same for MSNBC as well. both of them can go away, but like it or not its a free market and fox news make allot of money sadly.09/29/2014 - 7:46pm
