The Conduit devs hope to include voice chat in Wii game, also want a pony


Dan Kaufman, the lead game designer of Wii first-person shooter The Conduit, has said that he hopes to include voice chat in multiplayer.

"We are exploring the possibility for voice chat," he said. "It is too early to make any promises along these lines, but we agree it could make the game even better!"

How this would be possible -- there's no headset peripheral currently available for the Wii -- is beyond me. It seems unlikely that Kaufman knows something that we don't; between friend codes and the lack of any real communication in any online titles, it seems Nintendo would rather play it safe than sorry. Even crazier is the thought that High Voltage would ship their own peripheral along with the game, but if it opens the flood gates for free communication on the Wii, I'm all for it. 

The Conduit is set to release in early 2009.
