Nintendo has confirmed that each Wii Speak and its peripheral will only be able to be used on a single Wii. It will have a one-time activation code, meaning that it will not work in any other Wii, and it will be unable to be sold second-hand. Only those Wiis with Wii Speak are able to access the Wii Speak channel, which will not function without the peripheral.

Wii Speak launches November 16th in North America and December 5th in the UK.

    It's not that bad, guys. Stop freaking out.
    Who would run around loaning those to people, anyways?
    The problem is that sell & trade stores won't be able to buy them.

      Technically, it’s the same as downloading WiiWare/Virtual Console for money, it only works on that particular Wii.

    Just when I thought that Nintendo couldn’t be any stupider…

    wow. do they really think wii speak will be so bad to use activation codes?
    i see no point left in getting it now.

    At this point I’d rather call the person I’m playing with.

    You guys do realize that this is not a friend code.

    You use yours once so that it is assigned to your Wii only.

    No getting codes from other people.

    It’s like if Microsoft had activation codes for headsets.

    Because of this, you can’t let someone borrow your Wii Speak or bring it to a friends house. You have to bring your entiiire Wii. What a hassle.

    I’m not saying it isn’t retarded, just that you guys made it sound like you thought it was a friend code sort of thing.

    I just have one question: Do I have to buy Animal Crossing: City Folk to get Wii Speak, or is it also sold separately?

  • Sold Separately.

    And i don’t get what the point of this is…

  • phred

  • Aniday

  • Juls

    Umm…Aniday..I’d be more concerned about getting another Wii..
