Downloadable content coming to Wii next year?

RedOctane says it's working to release downloadable songs for Guitar Hero III on Wii -- what would be a first for the console that lacks large storage capacity.

"Downloadable content for the Wii is something we are working very hard on getting in place for the new year," RedOctane officials told Nintencast in an email. "There is no definite timetable in place but we are hoping it will be soon."

Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Guitar Hero III already support downloadable tracks at an additional cost.

Before its release, Activision openly hoped for the same on Wii, though they have since stated that Nintendo has yet to provide the necessary infrastructure (not to mention storage capacity) to do so.

Regarding the mono-only audio issue currently plaguing the Wii version of Guitar Hero 3, Activision has yet to issue an update to our ongoing requests for comment.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
