Rock Band for the Wii -Amazon is taking pre-orders @ $169.99


Recommended Posts

I wish it gave a few more details. I know that my kids will really want this one because they love Guitar Hero. Thanks for the link, OP.

:) Most welcome! My son has been waiting & waiting for them to release it for the Wii too. I saw this today and went ahead and pre-ordered it but don't like the lack of details. I can always cancel it before the release date if it turns out to be a bad deal...I'm NOT going to spend $170 for it then have to pay EXTRA for the guitar, drums, etc. I'm hoping this is a complete or near complete bundle.


Update: I've emailed Amazon to get the full product description (assuming they have it at all). I'll let you know the response if I get one.

possible downside, depending on your wants / needs


"Disappointingly, Rock Band for Wii will support neither online play nor downloadable content -- huge, glaring omissions. One of the game's biggest draws on other consoles is the steady stream of downloadable songs, which can be purchased and then utilized in-game very easily"
