Nintendo Phasing Out Wii Speak

Nintendo has decided to put Wii Speak out to pasture. They're slowly phasing out the voice chat peripheral.

Wii Speak, first released in 2008, is essentially a speakerphone for your Wii. It allows multiple people using one Wii to chat with multiple users on another Wii. The peripheral was presumably designed for team games - NBA 2K10 is one of the dozen or so games that supported it - but it never really caught fire.

Nintendo confirmed to GameSpot that Wii Speak is now available "at limited retail locations," but "additional shipments can be made if consumer demand increases." If the peripheral dies altogether, though, Nintendo suggests picking up Performance Designed Products' Headbanger Headset.
