EA to ship first mic for the Wii

Looks like the rumors we've been hearing were true -- EA is going to be bundling in a microphone with its Wii karaoke / dancing game Boogie when it ships sometime around the holidays. Alfredo Chavez, EA's gameplay producer for the game, recently told IGN in a video interview that "the Wii version comes bundled with a microphone, it's a USB microphone and it's probably going to be the first mic for the Wii." While that sounds disappointingly like the mic will be wired and plug into one of the Wii's USB ports -- it better have one crazy long cord -- we're still hoping for that fabled Wiimote microphone. Keep your fingers crossed, and check the read link to watch more of IGN's video interview with Alfredo.
