WiiSpeak Channel Planned, Dated, and Gimped

With the WiiSpeak on the horizon, it was an inevitability that some sort of chat channel was on its way as well. Today at the Nintendo Conference, The WiiSpeak Channel was announced and will arrive on the same day, November 16. Those who buy the microphone will receive a code to download the software to their Wiis for free. I’m not sure if the free code comes with the Animal Crossing: City Folk and WiiSpeak bundle though. Seeing how they’re marketing it with some sort of a price tag and there will be no other way to use the channel except with a WiiSpeak (I assume), I think the signs are pointing to “no” for the bundle. I could be gravely mistaken.

There is a bit of a snag; only four WiiSpeak users can communicate with each other at a time. That would be great for a few families looking to chat at the same time, but the people I know usually play games by themselves. Hopefully a wider amount of users per chat will be added at a later date, but this is still great news nonetheless. It’s funny, I made an April Fool’s Day joke about this very thing…
