"According to data from the NPD group, the Wii version of Rock Band was the franchise's best-selling SKU last year with over a million units sold. The PS2 version was right behind it.

Harmonix: No DLC for Rock Band Wii...Yet

Kotaku - March 24, 2008


Submitted by lstormy10 (30) at 1:05PM PST on March 24, 2008


"Regarding downloadable content: During Rock Band for the Wii development[,] Harmonix focused on making the core gameplay experience as solid and enjoyable as possible while tailoring it specifically to the strengths of the platform. However, because the Wii's online capabilities and potential have yet to be fully realized, we wanted to wait before we explored online functionality for Rock Band to ensure that players get the high-quality of online performance they've come to expect."

Interview: Harmonix on the Evolution of Rock Band (WII)

GameDaily - April 16, 2008


Submitted by starship (22) at 10:27AM PST on April 16, 2008


BIZ: Considering the incredible sales of the Wii I'm curious why Rock Band wasn't launched simultaneously on that platform along with the others because it seemed like a no brainier to have that right away from the start. GL: It was twofold. One, when we made the initial decisions about where to place our resources, [the success of the Wii] wasn't as clear as it became in retrospect and really for us, it was simply a matter of resources.
