Rock Band for Wii confirmed

John Riccitiello, the CEO at EA has revealed a Wii version of hit game Rock Band is coming. When asked about Rock Band Wii he said:

"EA will, at some time, bring Rock Band to every important platform. I think the Wiimote is something that holds enormous promise".

This wasn't an actual official statement but others at EA have confirmed it too. No clues as to a release date at this stage though.

Rock Band? Drums? Mic? How's that going to work?

Good to see we have Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band as we wait for the hopefully good Wii Music.


Randolph the Grey said:

Although that's not actually official, I am confident that Rock Band will find its way to Wii. I respect EA for waiting until downloadable content is available on Wii. This game looks great.


Haciendo said:

Hell yes.


gray fox said:

I want this game.



Yes finaly a rock band for Wii.


embra said:

Love rock band. About time they started to make good games for a great system, keep em coming Nintendo.


Epsilon said:

Woo! Now I don't have to buy a 360 too (though a certain Bioshock is still tempting).


Quartz said:

What I can say about this is that I hate that game, but it's popular, so I'm glad it's coming to the Wii.


ToTaLgAmEr said:

That is the best ever. I was just starting to get bored of the guitar hero songs, I've almost beat it on expert already.

EA has taken the term "fashionably late" a little too seriously.

Wow. Just wow. I'm going to be all over this game.


Wiipaw said:

Epsilon, I REALLY want Bioshock. Do you think they could (I'm not saying they would) port it to Wii? Maybe the water and graphics would be tuned down, but think for a second: you could beat up little girls, and actually feel like you're doing it. Awesome. Jack Thomson would love it.


TruBlu said:

I'm not excited about this game much. Wiipaw, you like beating up little girls with added realism? I hope that came out wrong.


ROB and BOB said:

Awesome. I am so happy. Normally I would be watching my friends with their xbox 360s and ps3s, now I get to play.


musicluver said:

Thank you I can't wait until it comes out.


Wii = Fun said:

Ok I'll admit this is nice, but GH3 was a let down on the Wii. I hope they don't make this a let down.


Albino said:

I really hope it's just like rock band on the other systems and you don't use the wiimote and nunchuck for drumsticks or anything like that. Other than that, this is going to be awesome, I can't wait.


Yeah said:

This is great! I enjoy the rock band demos at Best Buy. Now it will be on Wii!


t kid said:

I was hyped up about this game too but then went into instant depression when I later read that it's an exact port of the ps2 version, graphics wise and features wise. The picture might look good but live game play is just like ps2. And there will be no downloadable songs or online play. So I'm just going to wait for guitar hero 4.
