Discussions about The Beatles' songs being licensed for use in computer games have reportedly been taking place between representatives of the Liverpool legends and the makers of the hugely successful 'Guitar Hero' series.

Activision publishes the Guitar Hero computer games, meaning that if the correct deal was struck a Beatles version of the game would be made possible.

MTV Games, meanwhile, whom the Fab Four's representatives are also talking to, are responsible for the similar Rock Band games.

According to the Financial Times a deal between the parties could be agreed "within weeks". Any such deal would have to be approved by EMI and Apple Corps, who own the master recordings of the band's work and manage their business interests respectively.
