During a conference call the CEO of Nintendo America, Reggie Fils-Aime, unveiled a couple of things about the Wii, one of them being that the Wii may get online voice chat in the future:
Reggie talks about online voice chat for Wii - changes constantly happening, online voicechat is possible. It comes down to finalizing a peripheral. The fact that the mic is on the DS shows that Nintendo is interested. It is certainly something Nintendo is looking into, and Reggie wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit the system.
Nintendo doesn’t have a program that fixes prices on the upside. This would be an illegal practice. Nintendo is disappointed to see retailers price their products above MSRP. Nintendo would like to provide these retailers with less product. 90% of sales are done with top 10 retailers in each market.
