    voice chat still might happen

    The Nintendo Wii is currently the only gaming system unable to give players the ability to voice chat over the internet. Though a few games have been released on the Wii featuring online play, none allow players to converse through them. It's a frustrating limitation.

    During a question and answer session in a Nintendo conference call this morning, Reggie Fils-Aime addressed this issue.

    According to Fils-Aime, the system is clearly capable of this function, and Nintendo is constantly adding and tweaking features of the Wii system through system updates. The issue boils down to locking down the specific technologies and getting the specific peripheral to allow voice chatting.

    Fils-Aime noted that, since Nintendo found this tech and peripheral on the Nintendo DS, he "wouldn't be surprised at all" if the feature appeared on Wii. "It's something we value and constantly look at."

    very very very old news.

    This has been posted here already.
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    Thats 14 days, which is 336 hours, which is 20160 minutes.

    In the terms of news being reported nearly instantaneously, that pretty old.

    voice chat ain't going to happen. Look at upcoming games like brawl where you set a message to a certain button. If ninty wanted the wii to do things just because other consoles do then the wii would just turn into some sort of evil sony/microsoft clone.....
    My opinion is neither copyrighted or trademarked, and it's price competitive. If you like, I'll trade for one of yours.

    hard to play co-op when the other person can't hear you. also, human's are capable of saying THOUSANDS of different things. far more that can be pre-programed into 4 buttons.

    Also, you never know what might be happening. What if you need to warn someone of an ambush (assuming you are playing a war game), but you don't have that set as a message? well hell.

    I'm very pro-headset. But i can understand why people don't want one.
