MTV's Patrick Klepek allowed readers to submit questions for him to ask Harmonix about Rock Band 2
, and luckily for us, people were curious about the details of the Wii version. Klepek got real, concrete answers about DLC -- and less concrete answers about instrument compatibility.
First, the good news: like its competitor, Guitar Hero: World Tour, Rock Band 2
allows players to run songs directly from an SD card. No need to scour the fridge! This contradicts what we'd heard previously
, but we don't mind because it's awesome.
The less good news is that Harmonix didn't have a straight answer about compatibility between Rock Band 2
and World Tour's
bizarro touch-pad-equipped guitar. That doesn't mean it won't work, just that ... maybe they don't know yet. At least Guitar Hero III guitars
will probably be available cheaply.
