Alright you guys, way to be able to trust someone's word over evidence. I know it's important to have proof in front of your eyes, but Wii Speak was a good device. I don't really want it that bad as a Wii U accessory, but if USB mics get supported in an update, I see no reason why it wouldn't work.
Wii Speak was 2 years ahead of Kinect's microphone, and it a good device.
I don't even know what to say @Crono_Cross
He'll fight whatever I say even if I have proof, so it's a waste of time either way I guess.
There's a difference between understanding facts and being ignorant.
I'm done defending Wii Speak. Most of you guys didn't even have it, so I would technically have more experience with it than msybe ShadVJ.
My console doesn't even freeze besides Sonic which I know is software related, so I don't know what to say.

Which game used voice recognition for Wii Speak?
Alot of devices use the same technology, or at least the same concept. iPhone has voice commands, Kinect has voice commands, etc. They might not be built out of the same components, but they ARE the same concept of how to interact with your devices.

WiiSpeak was a good idea. The Tech was horrible but the idea was good. If Nintendo wanted to do Voice commands like the Kinect then maybe a new WiiSpeak (WiiU Speak) would become something. I don't see Nintendo doing that especially after the WiiSpeak did so bad.

I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

I understand the Mic in the Gamepad and being able to plug in a mic basically makes it usesless, but then why would you need a Mic to play Just Dance 4 on Wii U? They basically give you a standard mic, and if you want/need a better one, the option is there.

Mario Party. I don't know which number, but it came packaged with one and I do still have it.

And I'm sorry if I offended you, that was not my intention.

I think that was Mario Party 7 for GameCube. I know Mario Party 8 didn't have the WiiSpeak, WiiSpeak wasn't out when MP8 came out. Also Mario Party 9 came out near the end of the Wii and I don't remember one coming with that, not 100% sure because I didn't own MP9

Ya you didn't have Wii Speak. I know what you're talking about though. My friend had Mario Party 7 with the mic that plugged into the GCN memory card port.
So I'm the only one that says Wii Speak is good, and I'm also the only one here that has one? Haha.

I thought Wii Speak was terrible. I used it on Animal Crossing and Monster Hunter Tri and it was like talking into a cellphone on a really windy day. I don't like talking to people when I always have to say "what was that? I couldn't hear ya."

The only time it was hard to hear is when people were talking quietly IMO. My bro and I would always talk with people on Wii Speak Channel, and I thought it was pretty good. I guess it's just what you expect, but they were selling Animal Crossing with Wii Speak for like $20 after a while.

Plus it just felt weird speaking to the television, Lol. I didn't use it much when my wife was around.

I had it and it was okay, but I had to use headphones to hear people properly and if I'm doing that I might as well have a headset. It was better than nothing, but honestly some kind of built-in protocol would have ensured more voice support. As a result few games made use of it. The Wii U having an integrated solution, means that more games will have voice support for online play.

Ultimately that's what matters.

Yeah, I was getting the two confused, I apologize. I have both and got them confused, I did use Wii Speak for Animal Crossing but not often because it was usually more effective to just use the phone, the sound was always staticy.

I don't much like updates, patches, or DLC. Once I make my purchase I want everything included and working proper. The internet seems to have made all hardware and software developers too carefree. Nothing needs to be complete or function perfectly anymore, deadlines mean very little, and yet we're expected to pay more for this stuff.

Updates are needed right now but the future of console gaming looks kind of sorry. I want console developers to make updates unnecessary.

You never have proof.

I'm afraid you don't know that difference.

I did and it was awful compared to a traditional headset.

Just for you.

Personally, I thought wii speak was fine through the wii speak channel. I never used it it with any games though, but I would assume the sound quality would dip if it was being used in conjunction with a game.
Anyway, back on subject. Some of the things I would like to have included in future updates follow, pretty much all taken from the wii and 3DS.
Photo, news, and weather channels to be replaced, maybe as apps from the eshop.
Wii mode needs to have the friends list and messaging replaced. I would have liked to have been able to have kept my friends from the wii as not all of them have a wiiu yet.
Some of the iPlayers from BBC, ITV, and other tv channels.
If the photo channel, gets replaced, it needs to have some of the same features as the 3DS where you can save pictures from the internet to it. upload photo's, mii pictures and qr codes, view photo's from an sd card.
A better messaging system for the wiiu, I know you can send messages through miiverse, which i fine, but I preferred the 3DS and wii messaging where you can send web links, pictures, sound clips too, and have an alert like the blue light flashing on the gamepad when a new message arrives.
Being able to join a friends online game from the friends list.
The over scan in SD needs to be sorted. I ain't paying out for a HD tv until my old one decides to die on me. I bought a scart lead for my wiiu, and the difference in picture quality isn't much between 480i and 570i, but it is noticeable.
On miiverse, having a community for every single game and app is going to be silly if it doesn't get organized properly. In the next 5 - 6 years, there could be in excess of 700 games between the VC, eshop downloads, and retail games,

I just want them to do everything possible as long as it makes sense. I think Wii U can already do PCM 7.1, but no games have actually used it.

Not an attack, but I'm wondering why you think this - is it mentioned in the system specs? I ask because something like sound-encoding is probably going to be hardware-based, so if it's not there already it isn't going to appear unless they update the kit.

Also do many people have this kind of setup? I'd be surprised to see support for that many speakers in a game even if the system did support it. I downgraded myself and dumped my Sony DD receiver for a Yamaha amplifier which supports subwoofer connectivity and am enjoying my 2.1 setup a lot more than my old 5.1 and 3.1 arrangements. Much better for music as well. Long Live Stereo!
