I'm sure Dee will have some choice words when he wakes up and posts, but the strip sums it up very nicely for me; you have to try really fucking hard to PUT IN A MICROPHONE IN YOUR CONTROLLER and NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT FOR CHAT.

Wii U Voice Chat Facts:
-The microphone in the game pad will not support multiplayer voice chat functionality.
-Furthermore, there is no systemic architecture for in-game voice chat whatsoever.
-Voice chat can be implemented by developers by specifically coding their own functionality.
-There is no first party Wii U headset, but third party products will be available.
-These wired headsets can plug into the game pad, but the Wii U Pro controller (more likely necessary for traditional multiplayer games) does not have a jack.
In the year of our Lord, Two Thousand and Twelve, that is seriously special, Nintendo.
