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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

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.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

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.
