    is voice communication available with the Wii? Will a mic be released?

    can we download Wii points on your Wii, or do you have to go to the store and buy the Wii points card?

    does the nunchuck and retro controller come with the system? or do you have to buy it seperately.

    what are component cables?

    thanks :)

    1. A microphone hasn't been released, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had released one.

    2. You have two options, you can either buy a points card or use a credit card.

    3. The Wiimote and Nunchuck come together within the Wii, but you'll have to purchase them seperately for other controllers. They are both respectively 29.99, and the Classic controller is seperate from the system, as it's only 19.99.

    Voice communication is unknown to my knowledge.
    I would be pretty much positive that they would want to directly get wii points from our credit cards.
    Nunchuck comes with, virtual console controller doesn't and is (I think) $20

    Yeah it was released for the N64, but it was terribly frustrating to play as half the commands you had said, he didn't understand. The DS uses a microphone though, so the Wii might use the DS' microphone instead of having one on the system.

    Hey, thats a good idea! That would be a good aspect of the DS-Wii connectivity. I would wear my DS as a hat if it didnt keep falling off. No, not really.

    Can't you also use a mic for Odama. Never played it personally. Have played it seems to me atleast, every gamecube game that was only released on the cube.

    That reminds me why did they ever take the mic out of the Wiimote?

    Isnt it still there? I think it is, but it only makes sound, not let you speak into it.

    probably to keep the costs down, but I wish that they would upgrade the speaker in the wii-mote. I heard it's really lo-fi.

    there are 2 u.s.b. 2.0 ports in the back, so it's possible to hook them up, but i'm not sure if there will be any games released for a while that are compatible with voice

    Ya that would be a speaker that is still there. A microphone is what you talk into.

    it's a shame that a microphone wasn't built in. it would add really good gameplay to many games, especially online voice chat.

    i'm not sure, but the rumble function and a mic together in one controller could make some problems (rumble would interrupt voice commands)

    as long as voice was used only in non-rumble parts of games, i think it would have been a great addition to the wii

    I was thinking it may also be simple for Nintendo to use the expansion slot in the wii-mote for a mic. but then you couldn't use the nunchuck.
