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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
