In a third quarter conference call on Thursday, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello confirmed the "coming launch" of Rock Band for Nintendo Wii. Unfortunately, details on pricing, a ship date, and downloadable content were not disclosed, though it should be expected sometime this year.
Speculation of Rock Band on Wii began last April, when Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos said, "We will, at some time, bring Rock Band to every [important] platform," adding that "the Wiimote is something that holds enormous promise."
Rock Band has been heavily lauded by critics and gamers alike for taking the formula of what Guitar Hero does so well (rocking out) and adding to it with drums, vocals, and digital band chemistry.
