Rock Band 3 developer Harmonix has hit a bum note with Wii users, announcing it's to stop offering new Rock Band Network tracks for the console as of next week.

Harmonix's community manager dropped the bad news on the game's official site, explaining, "Next Tuesday, 1/18/2010, will also be the last scheduled batch of Rock Band Network songs brought over to the Wii.

"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.

"Regular Wii DLC, and RBN releases for the 360 and PS3 will continue uninterrupted."

The last batch of new Rock Band Network tunes being brought over to the Wii is as follows:

  • 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"
