WiiU has mic on the controller. Maybe you will be able to talk with your friends (in-game) using it? I don't know.

just plug in headphones and use the mic on the controller makes the most sense to me

Well doesn't the controller have a built in mic? If so they will probably use that.

Hmm...the friend code comment still has me skeptical, but it can't be worse than the Wii's online system. The 3DS single-friend-code idea was a step in the right direction.

And as for the "ducked nothing" note on the article, I think Reggie is still hiding some key info about the console. Oh well. That's his job, I suppose.

Good miiverse moderation is based on parental controls i was worried they would force that bull**** on people who are old enough to decide what they find inappropriate. personally i'll turn it off idc for censorship at all.
