GoNintendo posted a possible scoop on a Wii microphone and decided to take it back down due to allegations of it being fake. The original story is still up on Wii Nation.
The rumour has it that a hidden option button ´Add Mic´ becomes barely visible when you do the following:
* Run Wii in 480p mode
* Insert ´Zelda: Twilight Princess´
* Press ´Home´
* Wait for the screen saver to dim the screen
Here is an image:
I have always considered a microphone for Wii a given. The GameCube had one, for a start. Also, there was plenty circumstantial evidence already. Early last year, the Wii´s hardware was proven to feature an audio input.
In late November, Reggie talked about a microphone, though that may have been a slip of the tongue.
