1.7m buy The Beatles: Rock Band

Big sales... in the end

Despite a sluggish start, The Beatles: Rock Band has now managed to rack-up impressive sales in excess of 1.7 million, according to the LA Times.

Apparently, 69 percent of sales (1.18 million) came in the US, with over 357,000 copies sold in December alone.

By comparison, the latest Guitar Hero (number five) managed sales just shy of a million in 2009 - presumably giving EA and Harmonix cause to celebrate.

We'll have more music game news as we get it.
