More details from QJ on headset and VC multiplayer:
With the console wars still raging and the sales reports and analyses in, are you curious as to where Nintendo will go from here? Well, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has more than a hint to offer Nintendo Wii fans with regards to two particular topics: online voice chat and Virtual Console multiplayer options.
According to Mr. Fils-Aime, future online Nintendo Wii titles may likely support voice chat. The flip side is that Fils-Aime mentioned that Nintendo has no plans of having online multiplayer support for Wii Virtual Console titles.
Nintendo's openness to the possibility of having voice chat comes as no real surprise, considering that Nintendo has already been fiddling around with the option for the DS portable. There's always a possibility, however remote, that Nintendo may change its mind regarding VC multiplayer, so if ever that happens, we'll be sure to let you know
