Rock Band confirmed for Wii

Not coming to Europe before April.

Silver-haired fox John Riccitiello has confirmed Rock Band is coming to the Wii.

Speaking during a conference call, he also revealed the game will be released in Europe across all platforms (with the possible exception of Gizmondo) some time after 1st April.

"One of the things I'm very proud of is the partnership between Electronic Arts and MTV," he said.

"What's probably the most interesting piece right now is the coming launch on the Wii, the continued sale of the core platforms in North America and then the fiscal '09 launch across Europe against all of the SKU."

Rock Band launched in the US on 20th November. Since then more than 1.5 million units have been sold, and Americans have downloaded music tracks worth USD 2.5 million (GBP 1.25 million).
