Nintendo: You can resell Wii Speak

Tuesday, 25th November 2008 19:48 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Eurogamer’s got a quote from Nintendo UK confirming you can sell on Wii Speak, despite the fact each comes with a unique code.

“Nintendo can confirm that when consumers purchase the Wii Speak accessory, they are provided with a Wii Download Ticket with a unique number. The ticket, which can be redeemed via the Wii Shop Channel, will enable the user to download the Wii Speak Channel free of charge to a single Wii console,” said a rep.

“Any consumer who may have misplaced their Wii Download Ticket number for the Wii Speak Channel or require a new number following a Wii exchange may contact their local Nintendo Customer Services department, where they can request a replacement Wii Download Ticket number.”

The story originated from this MTV article, which then turned into this bit from Kotaku, but now you need never fret: you will be able to sell your Wii microphone after all.

    Wait, you mean internet crybabies jumped the gun and complained of unfair treatment before knowing the full situation???

    Wow. That hardly ever happens.

    I suspect the ‘internet crybabies’ were right and Nintendo have backed down.

    Why on earth would they do this fannying about with ‘tickets’ otherwise?
