Nintendo Voice Chat Summary

By  • 

Wii MotionPlus
– Long overdue
– Is basically what the Wiimote should have been initially
– Measures subtle rotational shifts, 1:1 – Craig says it actually works, he likes sword-fighting

– A third-party might make a work-around eventually (headset, microphone)
– Can use wireless keyboard in AC: City Folk
– Matt will remain skeptical until he can really test it
– Nintendo playing it safe again – Craig
