    Get ready for TEXT-chat!

    Yes tis confirmed for (contender for game of the year) mario kart:

    ign

    US, February 26, 2008 - Nintendo fans still hoping that the arrival of Mario Kart Wii will herald the beginning of voice chat support on the company's home console will have to put those hopes on hold for a while. The publisher's European subsidiary confirmed in an official Mario Kart Wii posting that players will only be able to communicate with each other via text chat, and not during matches.

    "You can create rooms for friends to join and even text chat while you're waiting for other racers," Nintendo of Europe revealed.

    Very likely, Mario Kart Wii will support a USB keyboard to communicate -- most of the Wii Channels do this already -- but we expect the majority of gamers will use a good old-fashioned Wii remote to input messages, such as "Bozon, you suck!' and "Craig, you're terrible!" or even, "How the hell is Casamassina so damned good at this game?" (The latter message will probably take some time using the Wii remote, but the importance of the statement should not be ignored.)
    PS3 now, sorry Wii. You gather dust.

    cool, better than nothing.

    Better than voice chat sometimes anyway, no one yelling in your ear.
    Wii games: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Resident Evil 4, Zelda TP, SSX: Blur, Excite Truck, The Godfather, and Mario Kart Wii
    PC games: Call of Duty 4, Halo 1, UT3, F.E.A.R., and The Orange Box.
    PS3 games: Ratchet and Clank F.T.O.D., Resistance 2, Wipeout HD, and MGS4.

    I told you guys that Mario Kart would have chat features, mostly I emphasized voice chat as a possibility. Nintendo said they are releasing voice chat in the future.

    I swear I read this before, I assumed the rest of you knew already as well.
    Must have been something else then, but in the preview for the game they talked about voice chat.

    Oh well, it is better than nothing.

    ^Yea, I've been aware of text chat for a while now, but voice chat was only a rumor. It was never confirmed.
