The key difference in our strategy versus the prior cycle, is that in addition to full support on Sony and Microsoft platforms, we will aggressively target the Nintendo platforms consistent with our multi-platform strategy and Nintendo’s expected growth. In fiscal 2008, we will double our offerings on the DS and the Wii, including Spider-Man, Shrek, Transformers, and Guitar Hero

Milking it but at least it'll be wireless

No real benefit over the PS2 version though, unless they think up something clever with the Wii Remote.

The fact you don't need another controller is a benefit I would have thought. Having seen someone using the wiimote on freetar it should work with the wiimote quite easily.

Surely you will need a new controller for the Wii version, though. The Wii controller isn't anything like big enough to play two handed (Ukelele Hero?). Perhaps they could chuck in an inexpensive casing to slot the Wiimote into, thus keeping the price down.

Why wouldn't it just be a regular Guitar controller?

There's a chance that the reason they've decided to release it because they've figured that they can do a reasonable version of it without the need to make a guitar peripheral.

It would be pretty rubbish though, and it's pretty unlikely. It would be nice if they just do a guitar you can slot the remote into so it's immediately wireless. They wouldn't need the extra sensor for activating star power either.

If the Wiimote slotted into the guitar, you could then hold the guitar in different postions (e.g. behind your head, Hendrix style), and your avatar would do the same.

You could then get bonus 'show-off' points if you were still able to play the song properly.

DRUM HERO

Use the wiimote, nunchuk and a footpedal add-on. Shimple! Ish.

I've thought so many times about how this would even work since the video of the guy drumming using the Wiimote... You would either have to imagine a drumspace around you and stick strictly to it, or they could create some sort of cheapish layout (like a soft pad) of the drums, so that you start up the game, calibrate the Wiimote so that whichever pad you are hitting would create a corresponding hit on screen and would be able to measure the strength of the swing (not sure about that) and thus let you drum with the Wiimote and Nunchuk... actually, that sounds perfectly reasonable. :| Roll on Wii Drumming

Tying some Wiimotes to your feet ofcourse.

I was speculating how they might do a Football (Soccer) game, and came to a similar conclusion. The game could come with a pair of football socks, and you could tuck a Wiimote into each one. :D

The problem with Wii Drums is that essentially you are creating a simulation, surely? (Unlike Guitar hero) Anything else would be a bit lame I think...

Which means that it will be hard as nails to anyone who can't play drums. And if you can... you'd go and play your drums.

C'mon man - throwing shapes! The PS controller incorporates a simple tilt sensor for star power.

Here you can track whether you're hanging the controller around your knees like Jimmy Page, throwing it in the air, pogoing, whatever.

Surely it would just be the regular guitar controller but pluged into the wiimote, making it wireless, which is instantly a massive improvement.

The drawback with that is that you'd need a Wiimote for each guitar. Unless the guitars are cheap, that's gonna get pricey.

What, someone would buy two guitars but only have one wiimote?

If there's anyone with only 1 wiimote they aren't the sort of person who is buying two guitar hero controllers.

Yes and yes.

How does that work then? Not enough buttons, and not aligned properly, and no strummy thing, surely?

I spot a flaw.
