    No need for a headset. What a silly idea and anyone who has played metroid online knows it's definitely not needed.

    I was thinking the same. it has a mic and speakers for a reason, a headset is unnecessary clutter. If you can't have sound on because you are in a quiet place then you can't talk anyway so it is pretty much redundant.

    As for the Final Fantasy III themed ds, it sucks how they keep bringing out all these super special edition extras... it just annoys people that already bought the console (like me, who bought one a few days ago) and would MUCH rather have the special edition one that is released just a few weeks later!! :mad:

    I was thinking headset for incoming voice and speakers for game sound, instead of trying to make out what folk are saying with all the background game noise when just using speakers, never played metroid online so cant comment on voice coms on the ds.

    wooosh back at you

    Maybe you cant hear people very well especially if your playing the ds away from your mouth which I for one generally do. Its a bit annoying to have to keep on bringing it up to your mouth to make sure the sound gets through ok.

    You can. As I said if you played metroid online you'd know. That was the point I was making. Wario ware minigames != tell you the response of the mic.
