Rock Band for Wii will be released as a Special Edition bundle including the software, drums, microphone and a wireless guitar. Stand alone instruments will also be available on June 22nd for people who want to build their band one instrument at a time or want to play the drum versus drum game mode. The game will feature 63 songs including five bonus songs for Wii gamers to enjoy.

"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, Vice President of Electronic 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.

Rock Band is an all-new platform for music fans and gamers to interact with music like never before. The game challenges players to put together a band and tour for fame and fortune - all while learning to master lead/bass guitar, drums and vocals. Featuring the most master recordings of any music game ever by the world's biggest rock artists, Rock Band includes tracks that span every genre of rock ranging from alternative and classic rock to heavy metal and punk. Rock Band has garnered over 40 awards this year including Game Critics Award: Best of Show E3 2007 and three awards at The 11th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards including Outstanding Innovation in Gaming, Family Game of the Year, and Outstanding Achievement in Soundtrack.

Graphics look better than the ps2 version at least (I think).

Looks good, I played the 360 version, some new songs would be nice.

Sorry guys but I've never found the appeal in this game. Why don't you just start playing a real instrument and stop bragging about how good you are at strumming a plastic stick. It's much more fun and rewarding (playing a rock band instrument is nothing like playing the real thing).

I found out that there will be purchasable track packs including the songs from 360 and ps3 DLC. It will be available for the Wii and the ps2, the first one will come out on July 15th.

Um, Frogman, if your comment had a point then why would there be games like Mario Kart Wii. Is driving better than a driving video game where you can race with friends? Of course not. Or Time Crisis 4, is shooting someone in real life more fun than shooting someone in a game? No way. Of course Rock Band is fun, what are the chances of being in a real rock band? Slim to nil.

There aren't dancers in rockbands. Dance=epic fail. Sorry. Hey does anybody think fall out boy should be in RB 2? By the way rock band 2 is coming out in September.

FOB+Rockband 2 = epic win. I can't believe there was only one fob song in rockband. I vote for the take over.
