Rock Band 2 DLC Now Hitting Wii at Same Time

4
Those that own the Wii edition of Rock Band 2 will no longer languish behind and be forced to wonder when all that new-fangled downloadable content will hit their platform of choice, as this week's Rock Band DLC lineup will hit Wii in addition to 360 and PS3.

That means Wii owners will be able to buy the ten tracks of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's Texas Flood album, along with No Doubt's "New." Furthermore, the Wii Shop will also be updated with last week's three Jimmy Eat World tracks.

It's the first time that Wii will receive the new tracks alongside the other platforms. Harmonix has been steadily updating the game's online store with past downloadable content offerings, and will continue to do so until the entire catalog is available.

All tracks will sell for 200 Wii Points ($2), and will be available to Xbox 360 and Wii owners beginning Tuesday, March 3. PlayStation 3 owners get access on Thursday.

    FINALLY.

    Now Harmonix just needs to work on getting all the old tracks up and running.

      Yeah, they are dribbling in rather slowly.

      Is there a reason (other than marketting)? I can see how making the note-chart for a new song might take some time, and require somebody to do it...but transferring a note chart from one platform to the other seems like it would be trivial at best.

      I guess the other problem would be the audio (again, should be simple) and video. This might be the kicker. Perhaps there's something about the visual aspect of the engines that isn't quite compatible and it takes some effort to convert the animations.

      Of course, I don't believe any of that. What I think is they delay in an attempt for people to get fed up waiting and buy some of the songs that are currently out. (It worked dangit it...I just bought something that I had rejected several times previously.)
