In a very surprising move from Nintendo, they decided to almost make their newest hit, Animal Crossing City Folk, almost immune to many of the issues that other games are having with used sales. Animal Crossing City Folk comes with the Wii Speak peripheral, the special microphone that enables voice chat, only though if you have the Wii Speak Channel.
Now the kicker is that Nintendo does not sell the Wii Speak Channel, the only way to get it is by using the “Wii Download Ticket Number” that each game comes with, it’s the equivalent to and Xbox Live DLC code, and like the Xbox’s DLC code, you can only use it one time. So if you don’t buy the game new, you can not and won’t be able to use any of the Wii Speak aspects.
What do you guys think? Good move on Nintendo’s part? Or bad news for us gamers?
