New Wii-motes will have mics?

Read Article here VVVVVVVVVV

Personally I don't think they will build it into the Controller, just as a Side add-on that plugs into the Wii controller.

this is just stupid (if there putting it in the controller)

in an FPS, you might be shooting and want to talk to the person. make fun of them for being a noob. then you know what happens? you either have to put your head down and not be able to look at the screen, or you have to move the thing and lose your aim

The speaker has a small material over it. That prevents recording through it, or at least dampens it.

That website isn't credible. No proof = crap.

They want publicity because they suck.

Well, if this really is true then you get to buy all your Wiimotes... AGAIN! It fits into Nintendo's "sell them their stuff again" way of doing business.

That site cites no sources, has next to no credibility, and seems to be very biased. Don't trust them for news. How do they even get their console sales figures anyways? (It looks like they BS them.)

They're cowboys.. Using old statistics they guess how many systems have been sold, but they're far from accurate. The fact is, a lot of people think they are accurate.

As for relaunching the Wiimote, that's a bit premature. My guess is that the remote will have an add-on at the bottom for a microphone. Ninetndo have never re-released a controller with added features before that make the previous version obsolete.

Exclusive news = a lot of hits which = $$$...

This is made up to get them more hits.
