Nintendo Okie reports, "As of right now the only way to talk to friends over WiiConnect 24 is through the Wii Speak microphone. It’s a decent system that used a microphone placed near your TV to communicate and all sound still comes through the TV. That could make it hard to hear what your friends are saying or make it so that everyone in the house could hear people cussing their friends.
PDP is launching a new microphone/headset for Wii that will be available for use with select titles. One of the first titles to use the new headset will be High Voltage Software’s Conduit 2."
