Dhani Harrison, son of George Harrison, has said he is helping to produce ambitious new controllers for Rock Band.

"I'm working on Rock Band and making the controllers more real so people can actually learn how to play music while playing the game. Give me a couple years, it's going to happen," Harrison told the Chicago Tribune (via VG247).

Harrison also helped in bringing The Beatles: Rock Band together. The game met with rave reviews in September.

"I guess I'm accidentally responsible for Rock Band becoming the Beatles digital platform, but it was a no-brainer," he said. "It's really difficult to get the Beatles to agree on anything, but I set up demos for them and [long-time Beatles confidant] Neil Aspinall instantly saw the potential."

The Beatles: Rock Band hasn't sold as strongly as analysts predicted, despite the enormity of the licence, but MTV parent Viacom maintains that the game has "exceeded expectations".
