SanDisk Announces Rock Band 2 Wii Card  

Posted by Mohammad Talha in ,

he Rock Band franchise shows no signs of stopping, and SanDisk is jumping on the juggernaut with branded SD storage cards for Nintendo's leading game console.

The Nintendo Wii's amazing popularity remained strong this past holiday season; according to market research firm NPD Group, Nintendo sold more than two million of the gaming consoles in North America in November alone. The accessory market for this popular gaming console expanded just a smidgeon Tuesday as SanDisk announced the Rock Band 2 Wii Card, a storage card specially branded for Wii owners who are fans of the virtual gaming franchise.

The announcement was made at the CES 2009 show in Las Vegas.

"The actual storage capacity on the Wii is pretty limited, said Brian Pridgeon, director of international product marketing at SanDisk, pointing out that most users don't even realize the console comes with a storage card slot. "We're giving consumers a chance to extend their gaming experience," he said.

The 2GB Rock Band 2 Wii Card will sell for $12.99 – room enough for dozens of downloadable songs, instruments, instructional lessons, and other content, the company said.

Adding an SD card allows a gamer to store saved games, transfer data to a different console, and continue his progress. There's nothing unique about SanDisk's card, however; it doesn't come with any special Rock Band content,,, (full Story)
