Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. has announced that it has been nominated for Best Game-Related Site in the 14th Annual Webby Awards. TheBeatlesRockBand.com (if not crushed by DualShockers.com) could win what is considered the “Internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times. TheBeatlesRockBand.com is praised for its web design techniques and amount of content it features. Set in the game’s own distinctive style, TheBeatlesRockBand.com is a great avenue for newcomers and fans of the game to enjoy some history on the people, places and instruments showcased in The Beatles: Rock Band.
“Nominees like TheBeatlesRockBand.com are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, executive director of the Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the nearly 10,000 entries we received this year.”
Winners will be announced May 4, 2010, and honored at a star-studded ceremony in New York City June 14, where they will have an opportunity to deliver one of the Webby’s famous five-word speeches with the world. Past Webby Award winners – and their speeches – include Al Gore, Stephen Colbert and Michel Gondry.
“TheBeatlesRockBand.com was a true labor of love for the Harmonix Web Team,” said Jeff Chausse, Harmonix Web Director. “Everyone at Harmonix put a ton of passion into the once-in-a-lifetime experience of making The Beatles: Rock Band. We really wanted the game’s website to convey the love, talent, and extreme attention to detail put into the game, and I think we accomplished that with a website that is at once cutting-edge, yet timeless.”
