Nintendo says Wii voice chat is a possibility According to Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime, the Wii may eventually get some type of voice chat.
Speaking during a conference call, Fils-Aime confided that there id nothing technically stopping voice chat in online play on the Wii and it is only a matter of Nintendo putting the money aside to support it. "...what it comes down to is finalizing the peripheral," he added. "I would not be surprised to see that capability come to this system."

Currently the Microsoft's Xbox 360 employs voice chat and even comes bundled with a headset that even allows "sending delayed messages" in addition to regular in-game chat.

Film-Aime did however, shut down any speculation that the Wii's Virtual Console could be adding online multiplayer. "We do not anticipate making online gameplay for Virtual Console games," he concluded.

Yeah the Wii's online approach needs to be completely overhauled.

All the new next generation consoles are in the initial phases and have a lot of room to grow and expand their product give it a few more years until we see them really break into their full potential.
