Rock Band Wii? EA says “no” (for now)
A Wii version is nothing more than wishful thinking at the moment.
Despite the release of a PS2 flavor and official comments suggesting otherwise, Electronic Arts has yet to confirm Rock Band for Wii.
“We have not announced any plans for a Wii version at this time,” wrote EA’s Bryce Baer on Wednesday in an email to GamePro.
In April 2007, Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos said “absolutely” when asked if there was a possibility of seeing the game on Wii.
“We will, at some time, bring Rock Band to every [important] platform,” he said in the conference call. “I think the Wiimote is something that holds enormous promise.”
Rock Band is currently available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PS2. The music simulator won several game of the year awards in 2007 including “best game that involves getting off the sofa” by the Associated Press.
