A confirmation of no headset support? I don't think so. I would say that the fact that Sakurai never said anything either way would leave the possibility that there would be some sort of headset integration.
I think the fact that he mentioned a communication basis shows they do care (or atleast want to care) about out online experience. I think, that the surprise later this month is headset support, and nintendo wants it to be an earth shattering surprise. So, if we expect it less and less, the surprise would recieve much more praise from fans and attention from the gaming press.
And i deffinately saw someone say something about the lack of communication (Of any basis) to non-friends. And the fact that that is surprising to you amazes me. Ok, here, want proof?
I put 4 things in my dpad:
Up: 3354-1183-4825 (made up freind code) Anyone else want?
Left: My name is Nic7
Down: Add me, I add you
Right: I love pokemon and yu-gi-oh, heres my address ************
Oh, what? That would completely destroy the friend code system you say?
Oh, Good call. If you allow this, you might as well just get rid of this whole system and just use something logical. (Which nintendo isnt in the mood for right now)
So, i think there will be some headset integration. But, I'm mostly just hoping it comes in time for it to be included in brawl..
Just the inclusion of this to put wirelessly on a table nearby and being able to change what your dpad says during gameplay would be better than nothing....Originally Posted by balrogs.pa
