Rock Band Network Going Dark on Wii This Week
Rock Band Network, the do-it-yourself authoring service that allows bands to put their own music into Rock Band, has always been available on XBox 360. From time to time, Harmonix will send the most popular songs over to PSN and Wii. Now the developer has announced that Wii version of Rock Band Network will be shut down this week.
In the weekly DLC announcement, Harmonix’s Aaron Trites explains,
With the smaller online install base, limited demand for releases so far and the significant amount of work it takes for our producers and audio team to convert and process these additional tracks, we’re no longer able to continue submitting RBN content to the Wii.
This won’t affect regular weekly DLC, as the announcement continues, “regular Wii DLC, and RBN releases for the 360 and PS3 will continue uninterrupted.”
Here’s the list of songs Wii owners can expect to see this week before RBN shuts down on their platform.
- The Main Drag – “How We’d Look On Paper”
- Wounded Soul – “Rx”
- Band of Horses – “The Great Salt Lake”
- Firewind – “Head Up High”
- Cetan Clawson and the Soul Side – “White Heat”
- OK Go – “White Knuckles”
