Rock Band Wii nagging questions answered

Joystiq writes: "Today's Rock Band for Wii announcement left us with some lingering questions. Here are Harmonix's answers [update: added answers to Mii support, 480p questions]:

Q: Will the Wii version of Rock Band include the Rock Band Store, and downloadable tracks?

A: When developing Rock Band for the Wii platform, we focused on making the core gameplay experience as solid and enjoyable as possible while tailoring it specifically to the strengths of the platform. The Wii version still contains the robust four-player band experience and all the fun at the core of other versions of Rock Band. However, because the Wii's online capabilities and potential have yet to be fully realized, we wanted to wait before we explored online functionality for Rock Band to ensure that players get the high-quality of online performance they've come to expect.

Q: Will the Wii "bonus songs" be Wii-exclusive, or five songs included on the disc from the Rock Band DLC store?

A:We'll announce the songs closer to launch. Stay tuned!

Q: Will the Wii version have missing or crippled features similar to the PS2 experience?

A: Rock Band for the Wii will have functionality similar to the PS2 version."

The story is too old to be commented.

The Wii version of guitar hero has online, while Rockband doesn't... that is just weak... So basically they are giving Wii owners a ps2 port... There is no effort put into the Wii version whatsoever... My money goes to developers who actually give a damn. I won't be buying this for Wii or PS3....

Q: Would you say that if the PS2's version of Rock Band took a crap, it would be the Wii version, with some extra songs?

A: Who are we kidding. Yes.

Kinda of dumb to not atleast attempt some sort of online play, ability...not just a straight PS2 port.
