Rockband 2 soon to come out for the Wii

The word is that the game will ship before Christmas, rather than January. There’s enough hype surrounding each Rock Band launch on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that it’s easy to forget that their are versions for the Wii and PlayStation 2 versions as well. But Wii and PS2 owners haven’t been forgotten, and it looks like they might be getting a surprise this month
