This is Sega we are talking about. Odds are 5:2 the songs are already on the Wii game disc and you have to pay money to get a key which unlocks them.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo said that you can only create DLC if there is an option to specifically do it within the game, ie you can't patch it through.

And yeah, wow at Samba De Amiga being the first to do this!

I thought Activision said that DLC would be coming to GH3 Wii at some point in 08.

They did, but wasn't it a while ago? I've given up hope. After all, it would've been cheaper to patch the stereo sound issue, but they opted for a reprint, so... :( I want GH3 DLC too, trust me!

This shouldn't be all that shocking to people. After all, Samba de Amigo had downloadable music to Dreamcast for saving on those tiny memory cards. Those were really cool to boot, like Super Sonic Racing, (Angels With) Burning Hearts and O pa-o pa (from Fantazy Zone).

Those were the days...

Wouldn't it already be possible to use the SD card though? Brawl does for photos, I'm sure Samba could for songs provided there was a good DRM in place.

This is made of win. I've actually been interested in the game for a while, and from what I just read in Nintendo Power that they have pretty much almost nailed the controls on the game compared to their last playtest when they said the controls were wonky. Also if the game has DLC I'm all for it! :D

It doesn't even need GOOD DRM. Simple signing would work.
The big debate about Rock Band was that there's a lot more information stored in a song because of separate audio tracks (and in the case on the Wii/PS2, Videos)

In the original, you had a special mat and special maracas. A left and a right. Then you had to shake and pose them at different heights.

This one is similar, but because the Wii can't detect height (Just vertical movement) it's based on how you are tilting the Wiimote.

Also, anyone can make a maraca accessory that would clip onto this.

I would guess that this would be because the 360 and PS3 versions have their songs supporting proper surround sound, which means more sound channels in the file which equals more space taken up. Wii only supports Dolby PLII, which is basically stereo stretched over more speakers, so I'd imagine they'd be smaller.

Samba de Amigo had songs that were already on the disc which were unlocked by downloading a tiny file that was saved to the memory card. The Wii version will undoubtedly be the same thing, only this time they'll be charging you twice for stuff on the disc you already paid for.

Proof?

Seriously, it is that hard to believe that the Wii can play MP3 from the interwebs?

I can vouch for that. DLC for Samba Ver. 2000 was nothing more than a teeny-tiny file that unlocked something on the disc. I think it was somewhere around 32KB.

I can vouch for it as well. All of the downloadable songs for the DC Sambas were already on the disc. All you downloaded was a tiny key file. At least on the DC those songs were free.
