Wii Speak bundle priced in Europe

#1 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

According to Eurogamer,  Animal Crossing Wii & Wii Speak will retail at £59, meaning in essence Wii owners will be spending out £20 for the device.  A standalone Wii Speak device will retail likely at £25. It's important to remember that these are UK prices and no prices have been laid out for the US just yet.

Reasonable I suppose, I had thought they would hit the £30-35 mark, while touting Wii Speak as the future of videogame vocal communication.

If it does what it's supposed to do well, that being reducing BGN while amplifying multiple vocal sources, well then I suppose it's worth it. I just dislike the fact it's not wireless.

Anyway I asked if this will be retro compatible, like will it work with Brawl?

Your reply should have been a straight no, this is Nintendo we are talking about.  I can get angry just thinking about it. Brawl was supposed to have a excellent online as well as VC, something that many fans had called for...failed to deliver on both, that's the fact.
