Edge Talks To Nintendo About Wii Speak
Edge: I purchase The Wii Speak Microphone, but my console unit gets broken/stolen/lost. I replace the console unit and need to download the Wii Speak channel again, can I do this?
Nintendo: Any consumer who has previously downloaded the Wii Speak Channel but who requires a Wii exchange may contact their local Nintendo Customer Services department. The Wii Speak Channel will automatically be reinstalled onto the replacement Wii.
I have purchased a pre-owned Wii Speak microphone from a retail outlet. It does not come with a redeemable code for the Wii Speak Channel. Can I still get the code? If not, could I pay for one?
Any consumer who requires a Wii Download Ticket after purchasing a pre-owned Wii Speak Accessory may contact their local Nintendo Customer Services department, where they can request a Wii Download Ticket for the Wii Speak Channel for free.
A friend brings over their Wii Speak Microphone to show me how great it is. I do not have the channel yet, though my friend has brought over the redeemable code that they used to download their own Wii Speak channel. Can I use the code, or can I get the channel in any other way?
The Wii Download Ticket for the Wii Speak Channel will only be effective for use with one Wii. Therefore, you cannot take your Wii Speak accessory to a friend’s house and download the Wii Speak Channel on their Wii using their Wii Download Ticket, if it has already been redeemed.
I have purchased a third-party microphone which is said to be compatible for the Wii. It does not come with a Wii Speak Channel code, can I still get the service?
No, when Wii Speak is bought (Either as a bundle or standalone) you get a Wii Download Ticket for the Wii Speak Channel to download the channel, this is the only way to obtain the channel.
