The coordinated marketing blitz behind The Beatles: Rock Band was unprecedented, but with interest in music games on the decline and Guitar Hero remaining a continuing top performer, were the fab four enough to topple Guitar Hero 5? As it turns out, yes. The NPD Group has informed me The Beatles: Rock Band, across all platforms, outsold Guitar Hero 5 in September.

According to the numbers, The Beatles: Rock Band sold 595,000 copies across all platforms (it was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii), while Guitar Hero 5 sold 499,000 copies across all platforms (the game was released on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii).

Which one did you pick up? Or were you fortunate enough to grab both?
