Sgt Pepper's out for Beatles: Rock Band

Download the seminal Beatles album and get strumming to 'When I'm 64'

'What's the greatest Beatles album ever' is an argument that rages eternally among music fans, and although this particular writer favours 'The White Album', many still rank as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club as the group's pivotal moment.

The good news, especially for those fans, is that the opus is available for download now from Xbox Live and the Wii Shop, and this Thursday from PlayStation Network, to be used on The Beatles: Rock Band.

The album, which originally released in 1967, contains such memorable hits as 'When I'm 64', 'A Day In The Life', and the title track. It's the second full album add-on for the game. 'Abbey Road' was first up, while the more experimental 'Rubber Soul' is set to release in December.

For Xbox 360 and PS3, players have the option of downloading the full album (minus the songs already featured in the game), or purchasing tracks individually. Wii gamers can only go for the latter option. Rock on, people.
