According to an Amazon.com listing, Nintendo has discontinued their WiiSpeak perhipheral.
Nintendo also told Treyarch and High Voltage not to put WiiSpeak support in Black Ops and Conduit 2. Maybe they want everybody to use that new headset? Or WiiSpeak could just not be selling much.
I never really enjoyed using that glorifies speakerphone anyhow.
this is nintendos legacy: toss a bunch of shit out there and never support it. anybody use their balance board lately?
I think it was just nobody was using it. I mean, Nintendo wasn't exactly making tons of wifi games to utilize it, but third parties were at least trying. The Conduit and Monster Hunter Tri both use it, but no one ever had it on. Heck, even in Animal Crossing no one had it on. Personally I never saw the appeal of socializing with a bunch of random strangers over the internet. Practically no game out there requires communications to enjoy the basic levels, and for those who want it, there is skype. Heck, I used skype for Monster Hunter.
I do - I use balance board every day (it's a good thing to help your boddy )
The little kid who bought the Wii I traded in for Fallout 3, Farcry 2 and Red Alert 3 will be devastated at this news.
Wii...it only does discontinuation.
Why would nintendo be making another head setif they asked devs not to even support the current mode? Woulda been great for smash bros or black ops..but nah.
YAY more shelves space in the gaming section!!!
I only used it a bit for Animal Crossing, and even then it was a pain. Why does everyone need to hear my conversation?
So does this mean the value of one will go up or down?
meh, this reminds me of the xbox live vision camera, and now kinect
