Don't Go Buying 'The Beatles: Rock Band' Expecting A Real Free T-Shirt

Those of you who get a glimpse of the sticker on the cover of the Xbox 360 version of The Beatles: Rock Band and rush out to buy the game in hopes of getting a free t-shirt will be sorely disappointed.

While the sticker’s headline declares you’ll get a free shirt with your purchase, the fine print reveals the shirt is for your avatar. I apologize for my inability to snap a clear picture of the sticker. But just trust me on this one.

While electronic clothing does have some advantages — it rarely gets dirty or wrinkles — the perk probably isn’t enough to convince those on the fence about buying the game to take the plunge. But remember, the Beatles sang “all you need is love,” meaning you don’t need real free t-shirts.
