New Voice Chat & Download Features for DS
Nintendo has just announced two new features for the Nintendo DS. Nintendo of America's senior VP, Reggie Fils-Aime, said that the DS will receive downloadable game demos and voice-chat capabilities.
These changes will occur next month and according to reports, DS owners will go to certain kiosks at retail stores so they can download those game demos. The first demos will be Brain Age, Pokemon Troizi, Mario Kart DS, Meteos and True Swing Golf.
Also, the big news here is that there will be voice-enabled chat between gamers. For example, in the upcoming Metroid Prime Hunters you will be able to talk to others through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The only bad thing though is that you cannot talk during the games themselves. Only before and after (Yea that makes a lot of sense).
