Wii Want Voice Chat!

Wii Voice ChatThe Wii lags behind in a lot of areas. Its graphics are mediocre, the online environment is nowhere near the functionality of Xbox Live or PSN, and the hardcore fan base seems to be ignored (just ask anyone who attended Nintendo’s E3 07 Press Conference).

Wii owners have finally decided to step up and voice their opinion about their system. They want voice chat. With four-person online Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the way, it is hard not to blame them. Beating the snot out of someone’s Samus with your Kirby is worthy of just as much smack talk as no-scoping a Spartan in Halo 3.

In a poll done by IGN Wii editor-in-chief Matt Casamassina, an amazing 98% out of the 10,000+ who participated said they wanted voice chat in upcoming Wii titles. Any statistician can state that a sample size of this magnitude is representative of the total Wii market. So Nintendo, for once, listen to the fans and give them something they want.
