Let's not kid ourselves. I really like music / rhythm games. As such, I really like games like Guitar Hero. So, when the next Harmonix game was announced and it was Rock Band, it was pretty damn exciting. Then, there was the revelation that the game was only coming out for the 360 and PS3, which made baby Jesus cry. I myself, was one sad panda. The pain was lessened a bit when I saw the associated price tag, but the game still was amazing, and deep down, I still wanted it.

Fortunately, Harmonix announced that eventually Rock Band would be coming to the Wii, and that was about it. No price, no release date... nothing other than that the game was coming to the Wii. Well, that's nice, but I want more concrete information. The Wii owners want more information. Would it be expensive like its brethren, or would it be slightly more affordable? Would it be a quick cash in like Guitar Hero / PS2 Rock Band, or would the content be more like the 360 / PS3 versions? Most importantly, when would it be coming out?

Well, there is a release data and price for the Wii version. June 22, 2008. $170. Price, not too surprising, but hey! We now have a date. Additionally, it  will be a "Special Edition", with 63 songs, including 5 bonus songs. Oh boy, I can barely contain myself. Yay. Seriously.

So, the burning question of will this game be a gimped version like the PS2 version, or will the game be like the 360 / PS3 version has yet to be answered. Certainly, my excitement will either fall or rise with that announcement, and I can't wait to hear more about this version of the game.

UPDATE: Kotaku asked for comment about DLC... No DLC... yet. No DLC ==No Buy.

Have we heard anything about downloadable content yet?

Are there even downloadable tracks for GHIII for the Wii?
 
@BadEnoughDude:

Sigh... Kotaku said no DLC at this time.

Sad Panda I am.
 
We never got any for GHIII either, did we? It's been ages since I have even looked..
 
@BadEnoughDude:

Sigh... I hate Nintendo So very much at the moment.

PS3 Rock Band... Here I come!
 
Rock Band Wii's not gonna have any downloadable content because Nintendo's online isn't up to par with Sony and Microsoft's. They said they're gonna hold off on it until Nintendo improves their online serivce. I read that at IGN, if anyone wants to know the source.
