"Wii U Chat" discovered. But what is it?

"Nintendo Nation discover that Nintendo's "Wii U chat" and the promise of eShop applications have been hiding away all this time on Wii U's console packaging artwork." (Tech, Wii, Wii U)

At the direct, Reggie said free video chat. Given the camera on the Gamepad, it's going to be simple.

Yea and everyone with a WiiU can video chat since you don't have to buy extra hardware to do things.
BattleAxe  +   921d ago
You guys are both wrong. WiiU Chat is where people have competitions to see who can say WiiUWiiUWiiUWiiUWiiUWiiU....WE EEEEEEEEEUUUUUUU the longest and the loudest.

Yup. Just like Facetime. I think it's a great idea they allocated 1 GB just for the operating system too.

New Mii characters? We the ones seen in the new games didn't look new at all. WiiU chat seems good. Everything looks great so far.

Probably slightly upgraded. More expressions, hairstyles and what not. Maybe even hats. Sort of like the 3DS.

Actually they havent shown the Mii's properly yet in HD (well apart from on the NSMB U trailers, but you couldnt see them that good.)

Hitler Mii in HD anyone lol.

@Ness-Psi

Well, they've kind of been shown off in HD for Nintendo Land. They don't look too badly there. In fact I'd argue that the style is better than the 360 Avatars.

Probably the Wii U's cross game chat.

I sure hope so. If not we can dream can't we?
Griffin4871  +   921d ago
Hopefully we can unlock outfits and accessories for Miis through achievements and things like that.

YES, this. I could see that being pretty darn addicting.

I'm glad they're including this. WHY don't they share things like this with the public before the system comes out though?!? I don't get it... Why hide good features?

Phones have it. Tablets have it. 360/PS3 have it, although not through a handheld device. The Vita has it. I'm glad they're adding it to the Wii U. ^_^

Wolfbiker  +   921d ago

DivineAssault  +   921d ago

Honestly, after all my time on the 360 and ps3 I don't care about chatting to random people because most of the time they turn out to be racist, sexist, homophobic assholes. I don't want to speak to anyone on ps3, I have a headset for 360 specifically so I don't have to hear people speak through my tv when you can't mute them, and I talk to my friends on skype. Back when the 360 launched the idea of talking to other people was awesome, but today the idea disgusts me. For all I care Nintendo can just leave out all chat functionality.

I completely agree! I'll never foget the day that I brought Gears home and decided to go online to see what the game chat was all about and I've never really cared about that feature since then
cleft5  +   921d ago
It's sad that things turn out that way because the idea of chatting with random gamers could be really fun and bring back that feeling of being in the arcade talking to folks about games.

Having this sort of feature out the box is ace. Hopefully we see plenty of app-like things.

I always liked Everybody Votes on the Wii, hoping that makes a comeback.
