    Wiimote to have VoIP capabilities?

    Rumours are wild that Nintendo plan on using the wii remote speaker capabilities to allow the remote to act as an online communication tool.

    We already know the remote features a built in speaker but what if it also contains a microphone? Nintendo have hinted that there are still Wii functions that have yet to be revealed, but who knows..

    I too have been wandering about VOIP capabilities (I posted a thread on the general area half an hour ago without seeing your post). I think it would be a fantastic idea. After all, the next generation of consoles are not looking solely at gaming but MP3 playing, DVD playing, and even global communication.

    Imagine something like counter strike on the Wii with communication between players.....mmm.

So personally, I couldn't see any voip capabilities, although online chat through some of their games, maybe.

    That would be a great addition to the Wiimote. This would be prefect for their online plans. The Wiimote has to be the most multifunctional controller ever made.

    I am sure it will be there. VoIP doesn't have to be internet phone. The voice chat in MP:Hunters is still technically VoIP
