    Maybe not, if they are making 2 for the others and want one on the Wii I am sure they would just make a version for all of them. Although I guess that has happened in the past.

    Oh well, Rockband Wii is good whether it be 1 or 2 IMO.

    well no doubt wii owners will get screwed over on downloadable content just like with Guitar Hero 3, but maybe the huge gap between rock band and rock band wii isnt all taht bad, they have a chance to fix those damn guitar controllers. they SUCK i hate mine. lol

    Not going to buy it...I'll just go to my friends house to play Guitar Hero III and Rock Band (PS3). Great news for the people who wanted it though.

    Meh. Maybe when I have a bunch of loose cash.

    I didn't feel justified paying 100 bucks GHIII (sold it on eBay. Win!).
    I don't know if I'll pick this up.

    I'll want it.

    But won't want to pay for it.

    And seeing as I'll be saving for a PS3...

    HERM.

    I already purchased Rock Band for my Xbox 360. I wont bother to purchase it for the Wii as well. However, this is good news for those who don't have an Xbox 360 or PS3.

    Cool! It's good it'll be available for Wii too. At the moment there's only a Wii in my house of the newer consoles, but if my brother eventually gets a PS3 we can decide wether to buy Rockband for Wii or PS3

    I've been reading a LOT of negative comments about this news from other sites over the last couple of days. I have to say that I'm really surprised. I figured that people would be excited about this especially since this is huge third party support for the Wii. I mean, that's been everyone's main gripe about the Wii right...no third party support. Now here we have a huge third party game being redesigned from the ground up specifically for the Wii, and people are still unhappy about it. A lot of the angst seems to come from the fact that most folks were underwhelmed with GHIII for the Wii and they're afraid Rock Band will suffer in the same ways. I played GHIII on the Wii and thought it was pretty good but apparently I'm in the minority. Downloadabe content seems to be the main sticking point for everyone. Is that the sole reason nobody seems to be happy about this?

    And in case people are wondering where I've been hearing all the negative press, I got it all from the comments on Digg.com

    I am looking forward to the wii version, i've put off buying the ps2 version because there is no downloadable songs for it. At least with the wii version there is a chance someone will pull their head out of their arse long enough to figure out how to offer downloadable songs.

    the way i see it, why even bother creating a wii version of rock band?

    rock band 2 is due out sometime soon anyway...and i'd personally much rather see them make "drum villain" :yesnod:

    Yay! I really wanted this game! I loved GHIII, so this is right up my alley.
