MTV and game unit Harmonix are bringing their popular "Rock Band" game to the Wii, starting June 22. Like its launch on other consoles, the game will be bundled with all instrument controllers-guitar, drums and microphones.

However its likely there will be no downloadable content for the Wii version of the game, meaning players won't be able to buy the new songs that the Rock Band creators unveil each week for the PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 versions. The Wii system doesn't have a downloadable content store like the other two do, and this version of Rock Band will be based on the PlayStation2 version of the game (which also has no downloadable content feature).
