    Hearing a few rumours that have come to light today regarding voice recognition for the Wii remote, maybe this memory space could be in relation to that?

    Apparently, a trusted person at the IGN Insider forums, who has been right before about a speaker in the Wii controller, has dropped a few pieces of information.
    “…voice communication will be via wireless, head-mounted microphones…”


    “Some peripherals for the DS will be compatible with Wii and vice-versa.”


    “Many Nintendo first party games (specifically games designed for a younger audience) will feature a new system currently being developed by Nintendo called ‘voice to text communication’.”


    “The system works using an advanced voice recognition system which Nintendo has been developing for several years. When a user speaks the sound is converted into on screen text and sent to the other players. However, rather than just plain text being sent the system also picks up the tone, pitch and volume of the voice and translates that into colour, font size and character set. For example, if a player shouts ‘I win’ loudly into the microphone the on screen text may be all capitalized, and in a large red font; conversely if a player speaks quietly the font may be a pastel shade and smaller.”


    This system also allows online voice communication to be easily censored by the user.”

    I don't think this is just for sound as it is non-volatile which means with-out power it can still hold info, the sound would not need to be stored after the power is out, I'm guessing first off it stores the sync settings so you don't have to sync the controller every time you use it, and also any updates they would want to put in the controller just in case it has bugs which I hope not but its a good in case something happens idea, a good company makes sure bugs don't get out, a great company does that but also makes for revisions as no one is perfect. I'm more inclined to think this is the function of the memory then game features as the developers have not been told how to access this memory and they more than likely are using the speaker already.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.
