Wii Speak: Conference Calls For Free!

Wii Speak

Wii Speak

Nintendo announced that their new product, the Wii Speak, will be available in mid-November in Japan and will make its way to America later on.

Wii Speak is a kit that should sell for around $50. It will include a device that is similar to voice-conferencing phones where it will pick up the voices of all individuals in a room within a 12 feet radius.

From Nintendo: When you enter a code that will be included in the Wii Speak package into the Shopping Channel, the Wii Speak Channel can be incorporated into the Wii console. In other words, the Wii console can connect one living room with others. If your friends do not own Wii Speak, you can send a message with voices to their Wii consoles through the Wii Message Board.

Slimline Xbox 360 to hit Stores in December

Xbox 360

Rumors have started to spread about Microsoft’s possible announcement of a new slimline Xbox 360 towards December of this year.

Rahul Datta, Microsoft India’s Retail Services Manager, told the gaming website Split Screen that an announcement regarding a slimline Xbox 360 could be expected.

This would actually make sense as Microsoft is slashing the prices of their consoles around the world to, possibly, liquidate all the current Xbox 360s they have in stock.

Nintendo: New DS Coming Soon

Nintendo

It’s almost official: Nintendo will be releasing a new version of their very popular portable video game system, Nintendo DS.

According to the Nikkei Japanese newspaper, the new device will feature a built-in camera, music playback and wireless connectivity (WiFi maybe). If this is the case, the new device would go the other way that the iPhone did; from games to multimedia device.

If we follow the trend, the iPhone went from phone to games. Will the DS go from games to phone? OK that’s far fetched but still…
