Harmonix shuts down the Rock Band Network on the Wii
Harmonix has announced that they will be pulling the plug on the Rock Band Network services for the Wii.
Sadly, Wii Rock Band users haven't taken to the online services, which enabled musicians to convert their songs for download and purchase in game, quite as well as their PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 counterparts and Harmonix has decided to call time on it.
The newly independent developer wrote on their official forum: "With the smaller online install base, limited demand for releases so far and the significant amount of work it takes for our producers and audio team to convert and process these additional tracks we're no longer able to continue submitting RBN content to the Wii."
The standard Rock Band track download services on the Wii will not be affected.
