Farewell, Wii Speak

Update: Nintendo UK has contacted Eurogamer to state that, in fact, Wii Speak has not been discontinued.

Nintendo's Wii Speak room microphone may not have been the most well-supported of peripherals in its time on the market, and now the machine has an official headset it seems the time to lay Wii Speak to rest is at hand.

According to Amazon's listing for the accessory, it's been officially discontinued by Nintendo, the final nail in its crackly coffin.

If you were after one of these microphones for a spot of Monster Hunter 3, Animal Crossing: City Folk or any of the other handful of titles that supported it, start scouring those second hand shops.
