Rock Band Coming to Wii


It was inevitable, but finally we’ve gotten confirmation that Rock Band will be coming to Wii. The announcement came way of an EA conference call, which unfortunately made no specific mention of a release date other than to reference the release as “the coming launch.”

EA CEO John Riccitiello said during the conference call:

In terms of pacing the next few quarters, you’re probably well aware of the more than $2.5 million music downloads that have occurred on Rock Band, and that’s a good part of the business. But what is probably the most interesting pieces right now is the coming launch on the Wii, the continued sale of the core platforms in North America and then the fiscal ‘09 launch across Europe against all of the SKUs. So frankly, for the balance of our Q4 and the first half of fiscal ‘09, Rock Band’s a key focus.

This is terrific news for those of you who only own a Wii. One has to wonder how the downloadable content scene will be handled with this version of the game – or if one will even exist.
