Wii fans can expect a rollout of the previously released downloadable content every week until the entire back catalogue of more than 500 songs is available.  In addition, the regularly scheduled future DLC releases for other consoles will also be available for Rock Band 2 Wii owners starting in February. Weekly Rock Band downloadable content releases are already available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.  
Rock Band downloadable content is playable and integrated into setlists in all game modes.  In order to play downloadable content for head-to-head matches or multiplayer online, all players must own the same downloadable track.
Rock Band downloadable content for Wii is available for purchase through the in-game Rock Band Music Store using Wii Points that must be purchased outside the game through the Wii™ Shop Channel.  In addition to the storage space on the Wii hard drive, players can use an SD card to store additional tracks which then will stream directly to the game for seamless play.  As previously announced, SanDisk will release an official 2GB Rock Band 2 SD card that will allow players to store more than 75 downloadable tracks. The official 2GB SanDisk Rock Band 2 SD card will be available this Spring. For more information please visit: www.sandisk.com. 
There are more than 500 tracks available to date via disc and download purchase (complete list of tracks at www.rockband.com/music). Rock Band continues to satisfy music fans’ and gamers’ voracious appetite for rock with more than 30 million paid downloads since its launch on November 20, 2007.  The Rock Band Music Store allows players to preview and purchase downloadable individual music tracks and packs from the vast selection of offerings available to date without ever leaving the game as they build their own custom Rock Band library.
