    If it's backwards compatible with the DS, it's only logical for it to have a Mic.

    The 3DS has connectivity of 2.4GHz? Which is the place I saw which only stated 220MHz? [​IMG]

    I'll buy those at some point because the mic in my DS Lite is broken.

    ill just add on it...

    Since the 3D image is only displayed at the upper part of the 3DS... then that means that we wont be playing games from the touch screen? like for example. Golden Sun Dark Dawn?

    You could be confusing cpu or gpu clock speed with wireless transmission frequency.
    On that point in the spec though, I'm really sad they don't have a wireless N card in there.

    Also, the codename looks like it'll be WAP. The plug is WAP-002.

    well they rarely used the mic in the first place, more of a gimmick... bit of a shame really could've gone to much better use.

    It was a gimmick because of its poor quality.

    Today, it could potentially be used for in-game voice chat, Skype, input for the Nintendo 3DS Sound application etc.

    But most probably it is exactly the same shitty microphone as in DS and its main use will be to blow the dust off some ancient book in a point & click adventure game...

    lol agreed but they did use in-game voice chat with pokemon platinum over wi-fi which was quite cool.

    It was decent for Nintendogs and mini-games in Mario Party DS. But improved quality is definitely a want.
