Is EA going to be smart about this game or not? (I'm guessing "not")

If EA was smart, they would target the Wii as the primary SKU for this game as well as putting the exclusive content on the Wii. After all, the people in the age group most familiar with The Beatles are also the same people that are in love with the Wii. Most boomers could care less about the 360 or the PS3.

Then again, I think exclusive content in games does nothing but get the fans angry at the publisher. Tell me EA...why are we being punished for supporting your Wii version of this game? What a great way to raise money for artificially limiting the available audience.

Of course, I'm expecting that the Wii will likely get the shaft as it has with the other Rock Band games.

Hum... You haven't played Rockband 2 have you?

RB2 isn't shafted in any way except graphics.

And who are you to tell who likes The Beatles?

I'm 16 and I love them >_>
Please just take a look. ^ Some drawings and stuff.

I own Rock Band 2 and I had to wait several months after the "exclusive" 360 release before I could purchase it for Wii.

As far as who likes The Beatles, there's no doubt that they have fans of all age groups. I'm 32 and I've been listening to them for over two decades. However, there are far more Beatles fans among the "boomer" age group than any other, and those are the types of people who are purchasing the Wii.

Indeed, you can say that older generations are more likely to enjoy Beatles music, but a lot of them don't play Rock Band/Guitar Hero (Just look at the name, really).
And I'm 17, and I love the Beatles!

And by the way, how would you say the graphics are on the Wii compared to those on the trailer?

The Xbox board for this game has 9x as many posts, that should prove something...
