Rock Band 2 on Wii to support song downloads, online play

Wii owners, rejoice.

Wii owners, rejoice. You'll soon have access to the same impressive library of downloadable Rock Band music as PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, replete with online multiplayer so your fake band can rehearse intercontinental style.

"MTV Games has confirmed that the upcoming Nintendo Wii version of Rock Band 2 will offer the same online functionality -- i.e. song downloads and Internet multiplayer modes -- as the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 versions," USA Today reported last week. "The PS2 version, however, will not include online connectivity."

Developer Hamonix has since confirmed the revelation, much to the pleasure of Wii owners, who were denied online support in the first Rock Band released earlier this summer.

Rock Band 2 arrives November 18 on Wii, PS3, and PS2 (available now on 360). Guitar Hero World Tour, Activision's response to Rock Band, also features online play and song downloads and will release October 26 on Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS2.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
