RedOctane has let loose on any remaining details concerning the Wii version of Guitar Hero World Tour. Mii Freestyle mode is now officially confirmed along with more guitar/drum stats.
On a side note…doesn’t it seem like Wii owners are getting the short end of the stick when it comes to these music rhythm peripherals? We are required to use our Wii remotes to power, and operate the guitars/drums whereas the PS2, PS3, X360, and PC versions have the tech built right into the controllers. Not a big deal, but these circumstances might upset those with only one Wii remote.
