While unannounced, MTV Games has confirmed that the upcoming Nintendo Wii version of “Rock Band 2” will offer the same online functionality — i.e. song downloads and Internet multiplayer modes — as the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 versions. The PS2 version, however, will not include online connectivity.
This statement has been further backed up when Harmonix confirmed the news via Kotaku earlier today. What does this mean? The battle between Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band 2 has just fired back up for undecided Wii owners. Just how will Wii owners be able to transfer RB1 songs to RB2 still remains a mystery.
A simple Wii storage solution would really solve a lot of these headaches.
