    Yes, this is a sad, but look at the last line. Is anyone else going to do this?

    Skype's a great program, espeically if you get the $3/month unlimited calling in North America. It pretty much replaces your phone line. But you'll need a cordless phone adapter if you don't have a computer close to your Wii.

    I don't know, it's possible I would. We have a vent server for our WoW guild, so I'd probably end up using that instead.

    I'm going to set up Skype or get Vent probably. Which ever one more people seem to do I suppose. I'd love to connect with anyone and chat while playing online.

    teamspeak server + wireless headset?

    or ventrillo....But No way am I going to pay $3 a month for voice chat via a 3rd party pc client to contact others via brawl.

    I still say that with the wiimote sideways control configuration, the potential for using the DS as yet another control option would have been viable, thus giving you the possibility for voice chat via the ds mic or a ds headset.

    I mean yeah its a marketing gimmick, but its one that many (myself included) would fall for.

    Damn it ninty, where is your creativity these days?! :yikes:

    I mean MS found ways to nickel and dime their legions of faithful XBL users for online service + voice chat. At least you could have assimilated a similar service into the WFC Network. With the internal voice chat integrated into DS technology, I see no excuse not to make the transition from hand held to console using that same technology.

    I mean **** you kept the god awful FC system why not port over the good stuff like voice functionality. The only issue is the investment into the extra technology (which is rather dated, and ninty can afford it many times over) So don't tell me it's too expensive or complex b/c we know that's BS.

    I guess I'm stuck using a wireless headset and a 3rd party voice client for my nintendo online gaming needs...:frown2: . Hopefully as the generations of console gaming evolve nintendo will get with the times eventually

    AIM has a free voice chat thing. Actually I think most of the IM programs do. Why not just use that?

    skypes cool and all but i dont see how voice chat is really needed in brawl i'd almost prefer to not have whining, screaming 12 year olds crying about losing beleive it or not. wich, i hate to stereotype wii owners, a lot of them are 12 and annoying ill bet they will all be on brawl lol.

    but yeah skype would be a decent alternative. pretty good idea

    Y know with the amount of crap and filth that is spoken over Live, I totally understand why Nintendo didnt implement this. Honestly, like I like trash talk as much as the next guy but how many 13 year olds making fake sex noises does it take before they realize theyre dumb and annoying?

    That's like not having a phone because telemarketers might call during dinner. You can always unplug (ignore) the phone when you don't want interrupted by annoying people.

    It all depends in how it works.

    I'll probably use Team Speak instead of Skype to talk to my mates while playing.
