Rock Band coming to the Wii on June 22

Posted on Sunday, March 30 2008 @ 00:11:21 CET by


A Wii version of Rock Band will arrive on June 22, according to DailyTech:
Like its release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2, Rock Band will ship for the Wii as a Special Edition set with the game, drums, microphone and a wireless guitar for $169.99. Standalone instruments will also be available for those who want to build their band one instrument at a time or want to play the drum versus drum game mode. Sadly, Guitar Hero III hardware will not work with Rock Band, as per Activision’s stipulations.

“The Wii's success among casual and core gamers of all ages makes it an ideal match for the cross-generational appeal of the music featured in Rock Band,” says Bob Picunko, VP of EA Games and Interactive Products, MTV.

“The social interaction and addictive nature of the Rock Band experience is a perfect fit for the Wii and will undoubtedly be fun for the entire family,” says Steve Singer, licensing VP from Nintendo.
One of the reasons why the Wii version follows later is because the Wii's online capabilities and potential have yet to be fully realized. A Harmonix representative claims they wanted to wait to explore the Wii's online functionality so players would get the high-quality of online performance they've come to expect.
