I recently posted a concern I had with the Wii U, concerning the method of doing voice chat, and now it looks like my fears are now reality. The thing I find most weird is that you can't use the mic on the controller to voice chat. So yeah, you need a headset to chat with friends on both the Xbox 360 and PS3, but then the other consoles don't have microphones built into their controllers now do they? Hrrrrmmm... This kind of bugs me, not to the point that I don't want the system, it just seems like a missed opportunity to simplify things. The way I see it, Nintendo just made a controller that can allow you to pretty much play anything on your TV. From your basic touch based game you'd find on a smartphone or tablet like Angry Birds, to your hardcore games like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, etc. I mean, isn't a microphone made to be talked into? I'm not saying it would be the best option to have a conversation through(I can imagine just hearing buttons being mashed, thumbsticks clicking, etc. making it too hard to hear the person talking), but at least give us the option of trying it. Kind of like, "Oh I don't have a headset, well this will do for now." sort of thing. Is it only going to be used for the video chat? Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens, but I really hope Nintendo updates the OS regularly and listens to gamers requests on how to improve it.
