    Hi I was wondering if Wii can use webcams..since theres a usb port on the back of it...is there any chance at all that there might be an option that will come out soon?

    It can't use them right now. Who knows if they'll add support for them in the future.

    Yes, they do. For all questions about USB support, read below.

    The following are the *ONLY* devices used by the Wii's USB ports

    Wii LAN adapter (not yet released).



    Other than that, they are only good for the power (for charging compatible devices only) no webcams, no pictbridge, no flash drives, no keyboards, no mice, no MP3 players for playing music.
