Nintendo pulling the plug on the Wii Speak, gently

Oh, noble Wii Speak, you promised to make taunting newbs and chiding teammates so much more of a social affair. Now you're being relegated to the cemetery of console accessories that simply never caught on. Nintendo has confirmed Wii Speak is only available now at "limited retail locations" ahead of an apparent discontinuation, and that while "additional shipments can be made if consumer demand increases," that doesn't sound particularly likely to us. If you'd like to pay your respects, visiting hours will be all weekend ahead of the final ceremony taking place on Monday between the Power Glove and Zapper plots.
