Microsoft has announced that the first downloadable song for The Beatles: Rock Band, “All You Need is Love”, has become the fastest-selling bit of DLC in the franchise’s history – all within two days of being made available.
The proceeds from the DLC have so far equaled in the “tens of thousands of dollars”, and directly benefit the Doctors Without Borders charity.
Also, remember that cool Xbox 360 with Beatles artwork up for auction benefiting the charity? It sold for $17,300.
Good to hear.
Full press release is through the break.

A special edition Xbox 360 customized to honor the Fab Four is being auctioned for charity with proceeds benefiting Doctors Without Borders.
It’s numbered and hand-painted with The Beatles: Rock Band all over it.
Also, starting tomorrow when the game is released, all proceeds for the All You Need Is Love DLC will also go to the charity. Once you have purchased the song, you will be entered to win a limited edition “The Beatles: Rock Band” Xbox 360 console and a Rickenbacker 325 replica guitar controller.
Cool. The console is up on eBay right now, and as of this post, bidding’s currently at $600.00.
