Please direct all Wii questions to this thread and our regulars will try to solve them. Just to control the influx of incoming Wii threads.
NOTICE: According to IGN, the Wii will not recieve the Abbey Road Medley. We now have word from a HMX developer:
NOTICE: We WILL be getting "All You Need Is Love", which is scheduled to be released on December 9. Do not worry, we will get the song in due time.
I will compile any additional information of the game specifically for the game here.
So far, we do know that the gameplay will be the same as the other versions, and the graphics are very good in terms of the Wii's visual performance. There are some drawbacks, such as a crowd in Sgt. Pepper, but overall, pretty damn good.
As for DLC, hmxsean has confirmed SDHC support for the game.This means that album artwork may be included in the DLC (It was not beforehand, as it took up a lot of needed space in the original SD card) However, due to Nintendo's restrictions on duplicates of any item in their marketplace, we will not be able to buy full albums. Songs will have to bought separately. This of course, leaves the Abbey Road Medley to question, as to whether it will be released as a track all in itself or made up of separate tracks, etc.
Original SD cards can still be used for the game.
NOTE: Due to GH5 Wii users being able to buy albums and packs coming into light, the purchase of full albums is still ambiguous, but I doubt we will be able to.
Wired controllers will work through USB ports. Wireless controllers will have a special USB Bluetooth attachment which receives the signal from the controller. (Unless you use Guitar Hero controllers) You may also need a USB hub to use all your controllers at once.
Guitar Hero controllers are also compatible with the game.
We will also not receive any patches released for the game, due to Nintendo's "no patches for third party" policy.
As for SD card info, a 2 GB will hold up to 90 songs on RB2. Now, do the TB:RB's unique venue system, I would suggest that it would hold up to 60 or 50 for TB:RB. As for SDHC, a 8 GB would be enough to get by for both games, and a 32 would go from $50 - $100.
Online play will work the same as RB2. If you have a Wii player's TB:RB friend code, you can request to play with them if they're online. However, all the vocalists must stay on the same console do to data restraints (this applies for all 3 consoles)
Here is a look at the Wii version:
Very good from what I see. Really nice graphics.
A first in any Wii game...we actually have achievements! The same ones as the other versions. The number of achievements you have is counted to changing your icon to gold and platinum/silver.
We are also missing a certain number of features (e.g. Ability to slow down practice, turn lefty mode on from the main screen). We have yet to hear from a HMX dev on this matter, but I have sent an e-mail and hopefully will get a response.
