Wii Won't Receive All Guitar Hero DLC Due to Bundle 'Restrictions'

"Technical or licensing restrictions" will prevent Wii owners from receiving all of the Guitar Hero World Tour downloadable content that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players can access, publisher Activision Blizzard has revealed.

As the Wii's online Shop Channel lacks the ability to bundle multiple downloads into one purchase--the store only allows songs to be sold individually--some downloadadable content, such as last week's Jimi Hendrix Track Pack, will not be available on Wii.

"Certain artists prefer to keep the integrity of the track pack rather than releasing singles," Activision Blizzard told MTV Multiplayer, referencing the Hendrix pack.

    The Wii is a really shitty platform to play GH with. I feel bad for those people stuck with just a Wii to play it. Beyond the no hard drive issue and this licensing thing, there's the fact that you have to own 4 wii remotes to play all 4 instruments at the same time. Also, the Wii GH drum my friend got was not properly calibrated and that meant waiting for a midi cable to get shipped then having to hook up the cable to a PC and calibrate it with the Wii and a TV plugged into it at the same time.

      who owns a Wii without 4 remotes? almost every game on the system is geared towards 4 player party games...

      and the storage thing is a non-issue, i have a 2GB sd card in there ready for at least 40-50 downloaded tracks...

      and your friends Wii drums has nothing to do with the Wii.

      the only thing i'll give you is that the lyrics look like ASS on Wii on anything bigger than a 40" tv.
