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.

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.
