    Ive came acros an article on a dutch wii fansite ( translated of course ) :

    Thursday 16 august 2007: You can already send e-mails with the wii to persons in youre adresbook. A quicker way to communicate has yet to be introduced. But it seems like it wont take very long.
    In nintendo's newest update ( followed by a patch ) they added a new function to Parental Control: Restrict online communication

    At first glance you would think that this option turns of the e-mail ability. NOT THE CASE !

    Would this be the first step to a chat function or maybe even VOIP?

    Hmmmmm this would be very cool if they would add chat or even VOIP ! :yikes:

    I talk to people I'm playing against on my Wii all the time. I can only assume by the silence I get back from them that I've left them speechless due to my stunning observations.

    There doesn't exist anything yet, but like you said, parental controls were updated with a new setting for communications. The same update enabled keyboard support so my guess is we can at least expect text chat. There is no way to know if the same update also added support for some kind of headset.

    If you are playing friends online you can always just use the voice chat on some kind of instant messenger.

    I think there will be voice chat sooner or later because the DS Already has it. Why wouldnt the Wii and more kids have DS than Wii so why not?

    it will not be that hard to do... don't think it will be that far off.. also will you be able to chat whilst playing a game or before and after?

    I doubt it will happen. Nintendo is too worried about little kids getting raped.

    VOIP = Voice over internet protocol
    LMAO = Laugh my ass off

    Yeah, if they didnt do it before than it is understandable that Nintendo wants to protect the little kids. But if they already do it on the DS than I see no reason why not.
