    Uh huh.

    Confirmed, like back in August when everybody thought the Wiimote would have 3d motion sensing and 1:1 mapping of everything you did.

    Where the hell is the source for this anyways? "They’ve already confirmed a DVD-playing version of the Wii is in the works", when you CONFIRM something, you're supposed to provide SOURCES, otherwise you're just BULLSHITTING

    Edit: Ah, I see, GotFrag is their source (some company I've never heard of), and GotFrag's source is some freaking Toys 'R Us manager. I don't believe it for a second, but hey, if you believe it, I have some snake oil you might be interested in.

    Edit again:

    I sent an email to Nintendo asking them in detail about this, I'll post the reply as soon as I get one.

    Honestly, I don't think this will really happen.

    I mean, it COULD happen, but do you really think Nintendo would WANT almost 4 million Wii's that would suddenly become outdated, because of a newer Wii, that costs less and can play DVD's?



    Seriously.

    Wasn't it already confirmed that it will be in a software update?

    It's Wiitastic and PS3 can lick my balls, you can quote me on that if you like

    I have heard of this, but never once have I actually seen a verifiable claim of it.

    Nobody has actually linked to a real source, like Official Nintendo Magazine or something.

    Well lets put it this way, The Wii does infact use a DVD-ROM. The only thing that is missing would be the actual codec in order to play movies.

    Does Nintendo really want over 2 million or so people to be pissed off?

    I hardly think so.

    Nice finding! Sucky news though! I'm sure that sooner or later someone will crack it and find a way to play DVDs on the Wii before it gets released into the US.

    I can't see them doing a price decrease as of yet, there is no competition in the price range. H/W upgrade, maybe but I doub't it would be something like a faster processor or better graphics so soon. My guess is if anything they might have found cheaper suppliers and can eliminate a few components to lower the cost. As people point out it would be crazy and a marketing nightmare to create a new H/W version of the Wii that wasn't exactly compatible with the current one (with a software upgrade). I can think of a few items I've bought in the past that this has happened with. If they can make it work the same but cheaper why not.
