    This is just what someone thinks Nintendo should do with their next update, there's no actual info about a 3.5 update.

    I don't like to be disappointed like this!

    After seeing the topic, i thought nintendo finally released a new update to block this stupid "Oh, i messed someting up, so: update to 3.4, downgrade to 3.2 and then start all over again". Some people here in the forum really need to be prepared for a new update, and i'm not talking about so called noobs.

    Well, i was parsing all the legit nintendo news from several sites and it seems that there's no talk about that upgrade.
    Very odd, because the site i was quoting is kinda trustfull. My bad if it's wrong.

    What you're saying is very possible. Nintendo could have been saving their ideas until now.
    With Wii Speak running in the background, imagine going to a brawl chatroom, exchanging both a friend code AND a wii speak code, then going online to pwn your friend in the middle of a brawl. The Wii Speak in the background could lower the volume of the game and keep the wii speak volume high. They could even come out with a Wii Speak headset that could let you hear your friends over wii speak through the headset and change the volume of your TV for hearing the actual game.

    This HAS been confirmed by Nintendo and is scheduled to launch in Spring 2009.

    ^ Thanks for the information, games2007 [​IMG]

    Edit: It could be very plausible if Nintendo is now going to bring us some update with great new features AND that blocks out all unauthorized stuff [​IMG]

    The Home-Button menu is programmed into the game itself (you can see this as Homebrew apps don't have it and it looks little different in some games), nintendo can't change this menu in the games.

    Well, Animal Crossing has built-in Wii Speak, so maybe Nintendo won't approach their older games again to add Wii Speak, but they will definitely be making more games for it. It'd be a damn waste of making people pay $30 for a Wii Speak Microphone that only works for one game.
    Thank you for informing me about the Wii Menu thing. I didn't think the Home-Button Menu was programmed into the game. But then, I see how it would be. It would have to be because you can't return to the Wii Menu during Wifi, which means it has to be...
    I didn't think of that.
    Sorry =3

    Well, let's just hope for some new Wii Speak games and wait for the better SD support. There will probably be take advantage of that with homebrew.
    Nintendo will have a way to make sure that the game put on your SD card is synced with your Wii's information, so that it can only be accessed with your wii, to prevent Virtual Console pirating. There could be a program that can find that identification code and put it into a downloaded Virtual Console game (from a pirating site) and be accessed with your Wii.

    But anyway...
    We don't know what Nintendo is really planning, except for their new SD solution that can play games from your SD card, but are locked to the Wii in which they were copied from.

    So, all we can do is wait.
    These are just my ideas, and are confirmed, except for the SD solution which has been confirmed by Nintendo.

    Fail.

    The mods should rename the title to FAIL and lock it.
