Shigeru Miyamoto has outlined his vision for WiiSpeak, the Wii microphone peripheral announced in the Nintendo E3 press conference last night.
“Basically, our idea with WiiSpeak is rather than to just provide a voice-chat function, we want to really connect living rooms to each other,” he said, talking to IGN.
“In that sense, the microphone in WiiSpeak is really designed to be able to clearly capture many different voices being spoken in a room at the same time and convey that over the Internet. It’s a very capable microphone and it’s designed with that intent. And so that’s why WiiSpeak has taken on the form that it has.”
