Beatles author/historian Bruce Spizer gave a brief presentation at the New Jersey Fest for Beatles Fans last weekend on some upcoming Beatles projects for 2009. Besides "The Beatles: Rock Band," which will be available for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION3 and Nintendo Wii on 09/09/09, Bruce revealed two other new products of interest to Beatles fans.
USAopoly, the company that produced last year's Beatles Monopoly game, will be releasing a Beatles Trivial Pursuit game this August under licensing agreements with Hasbro, Signatures Network and Apple Corps Ltd. The categories include: History; The Beatles in America; Movies; Albums and Singles; Songs; and On Their Own. Each category has 72 cards consisting of two easy, two moderate and two hard questions. The 2,592 questions were written by Bruce Spizer, who joked that the game would be coming out as soon as USAopoly finds someone to write the answers.
Box of Vision is an attractive 13" x 13" x 3" linen-covered coffee table box designed to hold Beatles CDs and booklets. It contains a storage system that holds up to 32 CDs and their accompanying booklets. The box also contains two 12" x 12" books. One has the complete album art from the U.K. and U.S. Beatles albums, including the full 24-page booklet from Magical Mystery Tour. The other book details the U.K. and U.S. albums, providing the release dates, list of songs and text by Bruce Spizer. The project was conceived, produced and directed by Jonathan Polk, a former chief operating officer of Capitol Records.
