Wii Speak is Holiday Gift Guide Tip #84
 
Buy Wii Speak from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Despite the fact that the Wii console is still hard to find and out of stock, there are millions of Wii consoles already in households throughout the nation. There are actually not many new hardware accessories for the Wii this holiday shopping season.
The Wii Speak actually stands out to offer something really new for the Wii console that has been standard on the Xbox 360 for a long time - voice chat. The new voice chat function makes use of the new Wii Speak accessory, a microphone that sits on top of the television and allows entire rooms of people to communicate with one another. Only users who have traded Friend Codes can connect with one another using Wii Speak.
The Wii Speak accessory comes with a code that lets users download the Wii Speak Channel from the Wii Shop Channel at no charge.
Animal Crossing: City Folk is the first game that features the in-game chat feature. The game launches on November 16th when the Wii Speak starts to ship as well.

For Whom:
The Wii Speak is a great new accessory for kids and teenagers who like to chat with their friends.

The Good:
Picks up conversation of everyone in the room

The Bad:
Only one game supported so far
General chat channel launches later in December

Where to Buy:
The Wii Speak sells on Amazon.com for $29.99. The new Wii accessory ships on November 16th - enough time to wrap it for Christmas.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
