The biggest addition to the multiplayer is the support for the new Headbanger Wii Headset. The device, developed by PDP, is the first Wii headset on the market. The rep confirmed to me that you can now use voice chat with friends and non-friends

I think this makes up for the lack of quality footage. --- Conduit Friend Code: 3137-4338-7044 Yes, I have WiiSpeak.

Promising news; hopefully the ratio of 13-year-olds screaming ph@g every time you nail them will be minimal.

^ Lol really. This sounds great though, and if you had people on your rival/ally list you could technically tell them your friend code via voice chat. Take that Nintendo.

Wait wait wait, this sounds kinda murky. Technically you could talk to non-friends in Conduit 1 a.k.a friends of friends. Were HVS referring to that? --- There is no better way to defeat your enemies but to slice and dice em right Link?...oopz forgot you can't speak. Well I guess a simple head nod is sufficed.

^ In the video that Achilles_Dae5 linked to in his topic (http://screwattack.com/videos/Conduit-2s-Lead-Designer), the guy being interviewed said, "We have voice chat between friends and rivals." It may not be Wii Speak with everyone, but it's much better than with just friends and friends of friends. But then I wonder, what is the difference between the friends list and the rivals list if you can talk to people on both lists? --- Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Ooh shweet!!! Thankz for the clarification. I'm guessing that the difference between the two lists is that with the friend's list you'll be able to host/join private matches and probably more. With rival's list I'm assuming that it would be limited to deathmatches and so forth. --- There is no better way to defeat your enemies but to slice and dice em right Link?...oopz forgot you can't speak.
