Harmonix has given more details about the upcoming Wii version of Rock Band (also available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) to online gaming news site Joystiq. Here’s what we gathered.

First of all, Rock Band for Wii will apparently have functionality “similar to the PS2 version.” There will be no online mode, so no online co-op and no Rock Band store. There will also be no character creator included, hence no Mii support.

Regarding the peripherals, those with Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC) will not be able to use their guitar controllers with the game. Said Harmonix, “support for the GH3 guitar peripherals in Rock Band on the Wii was not possible without Activision’s permission.”

The Rock Band Wii bundle will also come with a powered USB hub just like the Xbox 360 release. The game itself will include Dolby Pro Logic II support at launch and will also be 480p compatible.

Harmonix has yet to say anything specific about the five bonus songs that will come with the game, so keep checking back here for more updates.
