Harmonix Wants To Release Future 'Rock Band' Games On Wii Alongside Other Versions

Wii has become to be the most popular vehicle for music games, but two years in a row, MTV Games and Harmonix have delivered "Rock Band" on Wii months later than its counterparts.

This year, "Rock Band 2" will not ship for Wii until December 18. It might not make Christmas. That depends on when your retailer receives it.

Following an avalanche of complaints from fans, Harmonix took to their official "Rock Band" message board. Harmonix assured fans the studio is hoping to release future versions of "Rock Band" for Wii at the same time as everyone else.

"We've seen that many users in the Wii community have been unhappy with the period of time between Rock Band's release on other platforms and on Wii," said the company in a statement. "We want to apologize for the delay in getting RB2 onto the Wii and to reaffirm that we believe that Wii is an amazing and unique fit for Rock Band 2, and one that we care deeply about getting right. Going forward, it is our ambition to release future games on Wii simultaneously with releases on the other platforms."

The first test case should be the upcoming Beatles-related "Rock Band" title next year. If you can, will you be picking up "Rock Band 2" for Wii this holiday?
