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 ...

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

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

Matthew Wilson if they are smart, they hire Hideo Kojima, give him his own studio, and rebew the partnership with Guillermo del Toro.05/29/2015 - 7:04pm

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
