Look, we get what they're trying to do here. The two "ears" are meant to capture sound in stereo in the same way a human does, therefore producing a better sound picture in playback.

Well, we knew it wasn't going to be earth-shattering, but this first shot of the mic for EA's Singstar-meets-DDR Wii game Boogie doesn't even set off mild tremors.

The idea of a mic for the Nintendo Wii controller -- in addition to the speaker they announced at E3 -- isn't too far fetched. After all, the DS is already using such functionality quite successfully, and Nintendo included a microphone with their recent Mario Party games for the GameCube. There's...
