    I heard that there will a version of Rock band for the Wii. Is this a Rumor or Real?

    When will it come out?

    Will It be the same as the one for Xbox360 or worse?:confused:

    A wii version has been announced and will most likely come out late '08 although a official date hasn't been confirmed.

    It is 99% likely to incorporate exactly the same track list as previous versions and possibly all the downloadable content up to date comes on the disk.

    Visuals will be toned down just like GH3.

    Downloadable content is looking likely as Nintendo have confirmed a downloadable content service.

    All that has been announced is that it is confirmed but rest assured the wait will be worth the game:yesnod:

    It may be a little cheaper than its other console versions as well.

    I'm 99% sure we will receive the exact same quality peripherals with possible add ons like the Wii GH3 guitar had a wii slot for extra features.

    I am looking forward to Rock Band personally. I played Guitar Hero for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. I've watched and heard some nice things about Rock Band and can't wait for the Wii version.

    haha The rock band drums are way more sturdy than they appear. I like the way they are built. I haven't had a single problem with mine yet.

    Rock band for Wii would be nice. But I don't think the peripherals are gonna be any cheaper. The whole package may be 20 bucks cheaper, but that would be because the software.

    i have a feeling that our rock band port is going to be pretty disappointing.

    imagine enjoying the game in all its glory on a 360 or ps3, then having to deal with the wii's graphics and lack of dlc. :scared:

    here's a thought: DRUM HERO! :smilewinkgrin:

    The cool thing abou the Wii is the Wii-mote makes for these type of "peripheral" games to be Very cheep compared ot the others. All they really are doing like with GH3 is extending the Wii-motes buttons, your not buying a whole extra controller like with PS/Xbox, its just another attachment to the wii-mote.
    Normally a differance of atleast 10-20 dollars in price although with rockband already being out I would bet it hits the wii at a nice price range of maybe 139.99 or lower. Although you will need atleast 2 wii-motes for it.

    So far rumors have been summer-fall of 2008 but thats rumors. I'm sure they will rush it out as soon as possibal, probably be a Pay-to-play game because of the DLC on it, but you pay for the DLC on all versions of it. Beyond that it should be identical to the current version just toned down graphics wise.

    I will get it for sure, would be nice if they have the guitar compatability issue between GH/Rockband sorted out before this hits the Wii. Just use the GH guitar setup for Rockband aswell, that would be perfect! Give me an extra guitar for GH and all 4 instruments for RockBand.

    Well i agree with your comment about Wii version not being as good because it cant compete with xbox360 and PS3 but will we have to buy more controllers if we want to play withh all four instuments or will they come out with the rockband setup where the instruments have their own transmitter inside them. (do you understand what i was saying about it)

    i don't see the point in re-releasing this, seeing as rock band 2 is due out sometime this year anyway...

    oh, and not to mention guitar hero 4 and aerosmith

    Ya whats up with this Guitar hero 4 and Aerosmith crap. Honestly just make it so you can just download the new songs there is nothing really different between the original GH and the new one just diffrnet songs. they are trying to just make more money

    It will still come with the same 3 instruments the other 3 consoles use... Mic, Guitar, Drums thats for sure... Probably not an extra Guitar/Bass

    The Drum's/Guitar will probably just use a Wii-mote plugged into them "same way as the GH3 guitar" and the Mic will be USB just like all the others "and other Wii Singing games"

    It's possibal they might make the guitar and Drums on one of the extra bluetooth signals but really its extra electronics they can avoid investing in when they already have the Wii-mote setup.

    yeah i had rock band for 360, just sold it yesterday cause i needed cash. but it was sweet. hopefully they dont release shitty guitars with the wii version cause the 360/ps3 guitars had tons of issues and the drums could use a little fine tuning but they were okay and the mic is really good quality. it wont be any cheaper (ten dollars less for the game disc maybe).

    has rockband 2 been anounced because whats the oint when they have like 100 dloadable songs, theres no point.

    and as much as i want this, i dont think i get as i dont want to spend extra money for more peripherals (spele wrong, i no)

    and if rumors are true and gh is get drums and mic i be happy, but i'll just go to my mates house in a cople of weeks when rockband gets released here. (uk)
