    The headset itself will be movement sensetive? I don't believe so. Many have speculated that a mic would be built into the wiimote, but Nintendo already said it won't be because it would make the controller overly complex. Also, the mic shouldn't be built into the wiimote because your gonna be swinging it around and also, if it was for online chat, the wiimote speaker would interfere with a mic, aswell.

    I'm guessing Nintendo will make it an actual headset, but who knows what it will look like. I doubt it would be motion sensetive because moving a microphone around causes wind-noise. I'm guessing the headset will be bluetooth, as the controller is, and will be very sleek, like the console is.

    This may be wishful thinking, but if it were bluetooth, I wonder if you could just use any bluetooth cellphone headset? That way, you would have a you selection and you could pick out the one that best fits your ear/your style.

    i just read this in a different thread

    -There is also word that Nintendo in private sessions has big plans for the Wii headset. Talk is, that Nintendo wants to lean away from having the headset only for online capability. They are wanting to go further. Having the headset of course include a microphone for use in games is a given. But there was also talk of a late to launch release of this “gyroscopic headset” that would be supported by the sensor bar as well. To sum up the theory we were privy to. The headset would be somewhat sensitive to movement that could be translated into the game. Such as if you get up and move to the right of your television something might correspond for that in the game. Such as dodging things, looking around corners etc. It was also mentioned that it might have a unique look and non-obstructive lightweight design.

    can anbody confirmed that is is a rumour or shed some light on it

    I dont think it will have a headset... in fact I think its unnessesary to do it... why do u want to chat with someone else when u are in the middle of a game???

    The DS headset has an oddball connector that only fits in the DS, They'd have to come out with some sort of USB adapter for it or someting. They should just enable bluetooth headsets to be used, like the PS3, but I don't see that happening.

    the game CONDUIT supports headset and WII SPEAK in the options so i guess it's only a matter of time before a HEADSET arrives..??? the fact is in game chat add's to the fun and also playing teams games like cod 5 needs in game chat for the banter and telling each other where the opposing players are,it works perfect on the 360 so the wii should also support in game chat via a headset,a motion sensitive headset would be good as some else said flying a gun ship or jet in a game would be true to flying a real helicopter or jet as they use their eye/head to lock on to targets,,,,who knows i hope one arrives before christmas....

    I don't know if this will work for the Wii or not, but I purchased a Tritton headset several months ago for $150 (their flagship headset) and it was CRAP! The boom mic on it was very flaky. It rarely worked and kept falling off. My personal recommendation is to avoid Tritton products... just my 2 cents.
