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.

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

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