what exactly makes it special?
New accessory addresses Wii storage issue. DLC possible now.
sourceThe 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.

Or buy a normal one...
If it is special, and there is some sort of advantage, someone will just hack it and we could use our SD cards.
and can stream isoes directly from it - that'll be cool.
There's nothing unique about SanDisk's card, however; it doesn't come with any special Rock Band content, for example, though SanDisk didn't rule that out for the future, nor does it interact with the game in a way different from other SD cards.
very clever on behalf of sandisk for the peoples that are not so clued on will think this is superior over other cards...
good marketing tool and tie in with two large popular companies...
