Remember not too long ago when we told you that Harmonix had finally announced the release of standalone instruments for Rock Band? That was cool, but they neglected to mention any word about a standalone mic. It was widely assumed that they weren’t overly concerned about it, as most any USB mic would work. Well, as it turns out, it’s already on sale, and its packaging holds a mysterious secret.
While it’s not the best picture, that does indeed say “Wii.”
When you look at the top right corner of the package, you’ll note which systems it is compatible with: Playstation 3, Wii and Xbox 360. Wait a minute….Wii? There’s no version of Rock Band coming out for the Wii. Or is there?
So far Harmonix has been mum on any information regarding a version of the game for Nintendo’s latest console. The package clearly states that the mic is for Rock Band, so my only guess would be that there is an announcement on the way, and the mics weren’t supposed to hit store shelves just yet.
I’ll try and dig up a little more info on this later today. I’ll keep you posted if I find out anything interesting. For those interested in the mic itself, it’s been found at Best Buy for $50.
