Remember when Xbox brought VoIP to the world of gamers in 2004? In fact, Ventrilo and Teamspeak. Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 have offered VoIP clients. The following was on the official Nintendo site for only a short period of time before being pulled:
"To redeem a Nintendo DSi Download Ticket number, such as for the Nintendo DSi Speak Channel, enter the number off the Nintendo DSi Download Ticket in 'Settings and Features' off of the main Nintendo DSi Shop page, then select 'Nintendo DSi Download Ticket."
Really? Can't wait to see more. I asked my nieces and nephews their thoughts. They don't call it VoIP. They see it as simply using the game system to talk, type/chat, play the game, and most important, make new friends over the Internet.
